Meeting Kevin Bacon in Cleveland.

Did you know that Kevin Bacon has a brother? Michael is his name and did you know they play in a band together? The Bacon Brothers – pretty fucking cool eh?

So you can understand my excitement when my stalker pals informed me that this duo would be performing at the Music Box Supper Club in Cleveland on July 11th, 2018.

Kevin has been in many movies such as Tremors, Footloose, A Few Good Men, and the hit TV drama The Following. He’s been around since the 1980’s and has done pretty well for himself, professionally and personally as he has a beautiful family.

Let’s Get Down To Stalkin’

I had a 7pm volleyball game in Mentor (that’s on the East side which is a good 30 minute drive to Cleveland) that night but the plan was to catch the guys as they excited their show,  so as long as we got down there about 8-8:30pm we’d be golden.

Unfortunatly we didn’t have tickets to see them perform but we we’re able to swing the stalk.

It was late enough that they had stopped charging for parking so we pulled on in and got a spot right next to the building and across from the stage door. As we assessed the situation we noticed a black bus that had a trailer  attached to the back, we assumed this was the travel vehicle.

There was only one other guy waiting for the brothers but he was on the other side standing by the bus door off to the right. We stayed in the grass but directly across from the stage door, which meant Bacon Bits would have to pass us first before he would have a chance to escape.

You can see the light between the two doors, every time I saw it go dark I’d assume someone was coming out and I’d start recording, eventually I got it right but you’ll have to keep reading to know the rest.

By this time the crowd of one was now 7-10 people and we assumed that they were the “Ebayers”, ebayers are people who have stacks of glossy 7″X 10″ photos of celebrities and then sell them for a profit after they’ve gotten them signed. But as long as they stayed where they were and didn’t rush when the brothers came out I didn’t care how many there were.

Meanwhile…

It was close to midnight when the door opened up and Kevin appeared, he was with a couple of guys and was more than willing to meet his fans.

I don’t remember seeing his brother Michael in the excitement but I would have liked to meet him as well.

Check out the video below.

Keven was super sweet! I was nervous the whole time leading up to that moment thinking he would just ignore us but he blew my expectations out of the water. As you can see in the video he took pictures, signed  autographs and was very patient with us as we talked and rambled on.

 

I waited till the end to get my picture with him because I was initially taking video and then I had to switch over to picture mode, plus I was all shaky and at one point Shari was like (and I wish I had it on video) “Are you going next?” And I said “No, I’m all shaky balls.” Who says that to Kevin Bacon??, pretty sure I got a chuckle out of him. When it was my turn and I was ready I warned him that my flash would melt his face off, he laughed and you can genuinely see that in his smile.

I thanked him and then shook his hand, he literally made my night.

As we drove off I saw that he had stopped and was also being kind to the group of ebayers, what a super human.

I’d like to thank Kevin for his kindness and time as well as The Music Box for hosting such a great event and letting us chill in their bushes.

ALSO a BIG thank you to the few that read and follow along with our adventures!

Stay tuned as I’ll be dropping two more successful stalks here in the next week!

 

Stalk ya later!
