There is only one seating ticket left for the July 11th concert!
The setting is great, the Museum next to the stage is a very spectacular building by Frank Ghery and the
food around is one of the best in Spain. Hope we all enjoy the show!! :mrgreen:

I know you do Milcow :) ... you even like Bunbury :lol:
Too bad you can´t make it, we could have some Rioja together.
But I don´t see why being GA should turn you down.. :(

If you meant it was a GA only show, it wasn´t ( in fact it is not until that last seat is gone).
There are three different seating areas, located at the right end of the venue.

:) I don't like bunbury... I LOVE HIM!!!! ( I also love Camilo Sesto, and Julio Iglesias hehehe)

Do you know San Vicente wine? I love that wine.... that is the only wine I will drink hahaha... and it is from your country of course... yay

but my favorite drink ever from Spain is horchata... yay


The seated part is behind the general admission so I wouldn't sit in the seat. Ga is just scary when people run. ( I got run over once and couldn't get up) Also I wouldn't want to wait all day in line in Spain and not travel around. It's a waste of time and I have to be in front hahahaha.

There is a scalper site for cap roig seats... I might be able to find front more center than the ones they offer on ticketmaster. Maybe I will call there and see if I can find where those seats are... That would be worth going to b/c there is an assigned seat and I can travel during the day... and drink horchata... and have jamon serrano and calamar a la plancha and gazpacho of course...

sauteed calamari... freakin' AWESOME

@JC...yes it was GA and that was a rather safe one. I think it was safe b/c BostonArea screamed at the guy when he made the second line. They took our advice for the entrance after that... they were gonna let everyone in, but Boston and I both said they should let a few in at a time... and they did.
Plus in Spain, I don't want to waste the whole day standing in line when I could be out having horchata at the bar in Fnac or something... or looking at some historic castle, church, etc.

and I LOVED YOUR GAZPACHO... Guess what??? My mom bought me a blender, food mixer thing for Christmas so I don't have to use hers.

Do you think you can email me how we made that again? I forgot a little.... you can write it in Spanish...please?

Gazpacho is just great...especially if made by someone from the South of Spain, just like Jesus. A proper gazpacho should come
Andalousia, cradle of that incredible vegetable drink.
Johanna I will happily bring my own recipe before the show if you want to give it a try :wink: the basque way!!
milk we will miss you, maybe you can give it a try.
Cool pictures those of the Bilbao´s Guggenheim!

The way they usually set up the stage with the museum behind is very spectacular.
A friend from Bilbao told me this morning the setting is just gorgeous, to him the best view in town.
Also it is an outdoor venue and in that humid area of the country rain might show up anytime...
we will have to find shelter from the storm in the bars around! :lol:
Some more calamar a la plancha and San Vicente wine please!!!

I would never do that, no way, it would be foolish! That can happen in some other concert not
in a Dylan one! Don´t want to mention them...
Just thinking about about these things before or after the show :mrgreen:

The things you learn here :)

One of the best Gazspacho recipes ever came from ER member Clarx. It was excellent with the addition of the bread. Maybe the recipes you're speaking of are one and the same ? because Clarx posted several recipes one time that were so good... seems she has mostly disappeared, but maybe she'll show up to comment on the French Shows, kind of like Carolina has for the South American days, and like Dr TLT did for last Summer's US tour and etc etc etc....Some people appear and disappear here like that for a season. SonjaGoldenHand appeared shortly, but left. Maybe until there's a tour in Russia. Maybe they come back in a different incarnation...Maybe they are all really Bob Dylan! :shock:
