Now, it’s June 29, and my wife and I arrive at the venue. I honestly had no idea what to expect. The young lady helping to check tickets at the door shares that she is Rick Florian’s daughter. I asked her if she has ever seen her dad do a rock concert before, and she said that she was 4 or 5 the last time she saw it – but she was more excited about seeing Bob & Larry that day. How cool was this? Not just a nostalgic trip for some, but many family members were getting to see their relatives perform as White Heart for the first time!
The concert was broken up into two distinct halves. The first half was more about celebrating the history of the band and the memories of making this historic record. This included some rare video clips and photos, pared down performances by Gersh (and wife Brynn), Rick, Gordon, and surprise returning bass player (Grammy winner) Tommy Sims, and reflections from Brown Bannister, guest emcee Bart Millard (of MercyMe), and even a video greeting from Steven Curtis Chapman.
