Last week I was browsing the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom schedule and my daughter, Hannah walked in from work. She noticed that Bob Saget was performing this week and was very excited. She immediately said she wanted to go see him and was persistent on purchasing two tickets. She grabbed her credit card and within minutes we had front row tickets to see his show.
Hannah came home from work on Thursday afternoon, dolled herself up for the show and we were off to see some great comedy work. We arrived at the Casino Ballroom just as doors were opening, we got our tickets out, had our purses searched, got body scanned, carded, tagged and proceeded to our front row seats. We were there earlier than most people so we got to take some fun pictures. Also, Hannah was checking out Bob Saget’s Snapchat and found out that John Stamos was making an appearance the following night with the Beach Boys. This was a sold out show but we we were determined to find tickets because how often do you get to see two Full House stars in the same week. We scored two general admission tickets regardless of the sold out status. More to come on that concert…
Mike Young was the opening act. He is a really hilarious guy, especially when he talked about over thirty and under thirty woman and their differences in dating. Honestly I was dying when he started in on how walking his girlfriend’s Yorkie was not a manly thing to be doing.
I thought my daughter was going to cry when she saw Bob Saget walk out on that stage. Having watched Full House for more than half of her life, America’s most well-known dad, Danny Tanner. It was a dream come true for her. She was smiling from ear to ear.
After the show we decided to hang around for a few minutes to see if we would get a chance to meet Mike and Bob. Within several minutes they emerged from the building. We were able to get a few shots with these hilarious comedians. It was well worth the wait!

And Bob Saget thought we were pretty amazing as well. xo
We enjoyed you as well Bob Saget and Mike Young. Get on the Casino Ballroom schedule for next year and we will be sure to get tickets!
If you ever get a chance to see the Beach Boys, you should definitely not pass it up. We had the opportunity to see them at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom this year. This place is absolutely amazing to see any concert up close and personal. We were just at the Bob Saget Comedy show the night before and we found out that John Stamos would be playing with the Beach Boys the following night. My daughter, Hannah was persistent on going even though everyone was saying the show was sold out. She got on her phone, started the search and found tickets online and made the purchase. So happy she did! A woman who worked for the Casino Ballroom told us to get there early since our tickets were general admission.
Friday, I met Hannah at work so we could leave from there together to drive to the beach. We parked in the Casino Ballroom parking lot behind the building and proceeded to the entrance. When we got there the line had already started to form. There were probably about sixty people in front of us. When we got to the front, we showed our tickets and hurried to find the perfect seats. We had already decided where we would try to sit the night before. General admission is on each side of the stage as well as in the very back. We chose the back because the seats are on a raised platform and that puts you up a little higher than the floor seats.
We sat with another couple that were Beach Boy fans and it was a great time talking with them about all of the concerts that they have seen. They were even wearing their Beach Boy attire. I hope we get to see them at the next Beach Boys Concert. The introduction to the concert was played on TV screens on each side of the stage, and was a documentary of the history of the Beach Boys. Watch the video below to see our amazing experience. This year marked the 50th anniversary of the “Pet Sounds”album. http://www.beachboys.com
After the show, we were able to get some footage outside of the Ballroom of the Beach Boys and John Stamos leaving. We were hoping they would stop to say hello to the crowd of people waiting to see them, but they all just jumped in the limos and left. =(
