*"Shooting Stars..."

No, not that kind.
Made Cyndi Lauper & friends on her True Colors Tour Saturday night, kicking off the summer season at a really nice venue, the Bethel Center for the Arts, on the site of the original Woodstock, back in the '60's... *(thank goodness for long, fast glass. These images were made with a 300mm f/2.8AF with either a 1.4 or 2x tele-extenders.) I'll probably end up rummaging thru the personal archives to add some of my older concert stuff here as well...

And these few favs from my digital archives: Recording artist Mariah Carey performing at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Thursday, September 18, 2003. © CHET GORDON / THE IMAGE WORKS

Michael Jackson pauses during a press conference at Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network Headquarters in Harlem, NY on Saturday, July 6, 2002. Jackson joined Rev. Sharpton and other community leaders in support of an initiative to help protect the rights of recording artists against the unjust business practices of recording companies, such as SONY Records, headed by Tommy Mottola. © Chet Gordon / The Image Works.
