benenfit concert

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEvery year I count down the days to our yearly Genentech Gives Back Benefit Concert, one of my favorite events of the summer…  not to mention its free for employees! After last years underwhelming line up, this year we were promised the line up would be much better. Luckily this year, I was able to find out who the performers were a few days before the concert… I was super excited that one of the performers was USHER!!!!

The goal to getting a good spot at the stage is getting right when the doors open!

The weather at AT&T park was a little overcast, but came in handy when we stood for 5 hours listening to the performers!  First stop was grabbing some great ball park food and beer for FREE.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first act was Colbie Caillat, not bad live but not an energizing performance. She’s a great singer and brought on a special guest, Justin Young.

Next up.. the Foo Fighters I  don’t know many of their songs but the band was great and the lead singer is quite entertaining.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Finally after standing for about 3-4 hours what I have been waiting for all day… U-S-H-E-R R-A-Y-M-O-N-D!!  Best performance ever, great energy, amazing dancing, and he sang many of his old school songs!!!
