“Chance of thunderstorms” was a phrase that didn’t keep die-hard Glen Campbell fans from coming to Booth Amphitheater Saturday night. Heavy thunderstorms rolled in after the opening act, Victoria Ghost, finished playing their set. Victoria Ghost is comprised of Glen’s two children, Ashley and Shannon Campbell. This is their first tour under this name but they have a phenomenal sound. A cross between indie and folk with beautiful vocals.
The audience moved to the covered portion of Booth Ampitheater to wait out the rain.
Well, these devoted fans waited OVER AN HOUR for the storm to pass. And sure enough, the stage was uncovered at 9:45 to let Glen Campbell and his band back on stage. As I hunched over my camera under my rain coat, covering both me and my long lens, the crowds filtered back to their seats in the light rain.
Glen was having a great time! He was so glad that these fans waited through the storms for him to come on stage. The smile never left his face.
