Hello, my name is Carolyn and I am a Tears For Fears fan. (All together now, HI CAROLYN -said the members of TFF&Curt’sKerfuffles Anonymous) I do not apologize for being addicted to Tears For Fears, on the contrary, I shout it from the rooftops (just ask the people I work with, they have put up with my addiction for many years). I have TFF things (photos, ticket stubs, a very cool blue water bottle, a signed M&G badge, etc.), all over my desk at work. I would post a picture of the desk, but cameras are not allowed where I work. Suffice it to say that any hardcore fan would be proud to sit at that desk.
A little about me……I have been a fan since the 80’s. I was not able to see a TFF concert back then because I was busy being a Paramedic in Kansas City, Missouri, being in the United States Air Force, and then being a Mom. I had to make due with listening to their albums (yes, the vinyl ones), and watching their videos on MTV back when MTV actually played music videos. I went to my first TFF concert in 2007 in Las Vegas at the MandalayBay. Needless to say it was a dream come true! I felt like my life was complete. Since then I have attended 5 more…….GreenValley, LV…….Red Rock, LV……….Baltimore, Maryland…….San Fransisco, CA……..and Sunset Station, LV. The last two were this year. 2012 was the only year I went to two shows and I am going to try and make it to two shows each time now. I was lucky enough to meet Roland and Curt at the GreenValley gig. THEN it felt like my life was complete.
At the Red Rock show, I was sitting (more like standing and dancing) next to Andye, but I didn’t know her then, I just admired her enthusiasm. Lord that girl can dance and sing!!!! I was hip bumped by her all night, she is a hoot! The Red Rock, Green Valley and the Sunset Station concerts were my favorites (I loved ALL of them, but if I HAD to pick…..). Red Rock because of Andye and Rise, Green Valley because I met Roland and Curt, and Sunset Station because of Julian Orzabal and the Cabana peeps. So that is a brief history of me and my obsession with Tears For Fears. If they ever play in Kansas City, Missouri, I would be more then happy to assist everyone with airport details, hotel help, etc, etc. Hope to see you all at the next concert!!!!!!
