Star Wars in Concert - San Diego

Tonight R2 made an appearance at Star Wars in Concert at the San Diego Sports Arena, to help entertain the crowd. Driving on getaway day of a 3-day weekend is not necessarily ideal, it took me about 2.5 hours to drive the 82 miles down to San Diego.

When I arrived, the people with early entry VIP tickets had started to line up.

The changing room for the characters (and where R2 stayed during the show) was... the Men's room!

"Uh, a little privacy, please?" I'm going to burn those wheels.

The characters went to their stations, and it was pictures, pictures, pictures!

It was absolutely mobbed. Fortunately, Caitlin (our Princess Leia) did an outstanding job of directing picture taking, as well as posing.

A tattoo of R2's dome on her shoulder. More dedication than I'll ever have.

Once the show was about to start, the audience took their seats, R2 retreated back to the Men's room, and the characters dressed down and got to see the show.

The show in progress. Anthony Daniels is seated toward the left, as the music plays.

Some of us, including R2, came back out after the show for a few minutes so people could take more pictures on their way out.

All in all, an enjoyable night. I have a feeling this is just a prelude to the rest of the weekend, though. Stay tuned...
