Menudo @ Arie Crown Theatre 10/12/84

Two times in one year??!!  Yup, Menudo was constantly touring, so I did get to see my boys for the third time ever at Arie Crown Theatre.  This show was a turning point, though.  For the first time my friends and I were able to snag GREAT seats to the show.  I don’t have my ticket stub, but I remember having seats fairly close to the stage, probably within the first 10 rows. In fact, I remember for sure I was that close because at some point during the show I decided to make a break for the stage.  I actually made it up onto the side, but just as I was heading toward the guys I tripped & fell, and that’s when security caught me and escorted me back to my seat.  What a shame!! lol The video captures my fave guy, Charlie, in the spotlight and also shows the new line-up that included Ricky Martin:

I went with my best friend, her two sisters, and my dad.  Yes, my dad served as both chaperone and personal photographer for the show.  The picture of the guys that I’m including demonstrates my dad’s photography skills as captured by the fantastic photo of the guys at the top of this post.  And the pictures of me & my friends tell the other side of the story.  By the end of the show, after many tears & much screaming, we were thrilled but wrecked at the same time.

What a fantastic experience!  After more than a solid year of following these guys I was even more hooked on them!!
