History of Rock and Roll
Brandon Flowers / Detroit, MI
After a tumultuous thunderstorm swept over the city, security was advising festival-goers to head home. I refused to abandon hope of seeing one of my all-time favorite artists--a decision I'll never regret. After a significant rain delay, Brandon finally stormed onto the stage. Despite his stage time being cut in half, he put on an electric show, as always. I very clearly remember feeling his exhilaration, watching him smile at the mud-soaked crowd in front of him, and feeling like he was truly, genuinely happy to be there.
