Billy Ocean

With all the craziness of moving, I forgot to do a post about the Billy Ocean concert we went to Saturday night at the Reichhold Center on UVI campus. It was a great show, even Jay concurred. :-)
The Reichhold Center is an open air amphitheater that seats around 1200. It is really beautiful with a mix of stone and metal blended into the hill side on the UVI campus. With all the rain we have been having I was a little nervous going to an outdoor concert. Lots of people were walking around with their umbrellas, which we didn't bring. But thankfully, it was a beautiful evening, with no rain, lite breeze and no mosquitoes.
Billy Ocean put on a really nice show, singing a mix of his hits from the 70s, 80s, and his current album that was recorded at his studio in Grenada. Of course most people know Billy Ocean from his biggest hit Caribbean Queen which he didn't play until his final song. But he has so many hits that he had everyone singing and dancing in their seats.
We bought these tickets awhile back before we know this would be the weekend we were moving. We were so tired but we picked ourselves up and went to the concert. And I'm so glad we did. It was excellent.
If you follow this link to the Reichhold's web site and scroll down to the bottom they have a virtual tour of the amphitheater.
