I went to the ticket agent, which was a little store in Manchester CT to buy tickets for the show. To my surprise no one was there so I lucked out and got 2 front row tickets. I had seen Cyndi in 1984 at the Agora Ballroom in Hartford CT and it was awesome and I was hooked from then on. Anyway it has been quite a few years since the True Colors concert and my memories are mostly of the Live in Paris Video, but here are some standout moments. I raided my grandmother's junk jewelery which was pretty nice actually and tossed it on the stage and Cyndi was checking it out I was so excited. She also sat at the edge of the stage and was telling us that she couldn't shake hands anymore because of insurance reasons, we were laughing and then she says in the microphone OH SORRY I was having a private

conversation. We (people in the 1st couple) rows loved it. She looked so little in person. She was awesome and It was a great show. I also saw Cyndi at Foxwoods and when she opened for Tina Turner.
