Night To Remember in Vegas

Vegas June 19th By Sharon Maher

posted by Mike Walton



My name is Sharon Maher. I live in Surrey, BC. Canada. I have been a huge fan of Rod's since 1970. On June 19, 2018 I went to Las Vegas with my sister-in-law Brenda Costello, to see Rod at Caesar's Palace. This was her first time seeing him in concert. I had previously seen him in concert in Newfoundland, Montreal, Vancouver and Las Vegas. My daughter had caught two of the autographed soccer balls for me, one in Vancouver in 2014 and the second one in Vegas in 2015.

However, June 19, of this year was the best night ever!! We had excellent seats (Rear Orchestra, Row A, Seats 611 & 612). Since I had seen him in Vegas previously, I especially chose those seats because I knew he sometimes came down among the fans. On his walk, he acknowledged our Celtic Shirts by touching them and nodding to us. We also got to touch his hand.

Then to make a great night even greater, I got an autographed soccer ball. I actually didn't catch it, but I was in the right spot at the right time. It bounced in and out of our section several times then it finally landed in the aisle and the security picked it up and my hands were right there and he gave it to me.

It will definitely be a night I'll remember for the rest of my life. There is only one thing that could top that night......which would be to actually meet Rod. I hope this happens one day.

Thank-you for listening to my 'Night to Remember'
