On a related yet unrelated note from my last post, the newest edition of The Hippo also featured an interview with Judas Priest bassist Ian Hill who was extremely gracious when asked about the Granite State.
Hill, who will join his bandmates in a concert to be held this Sunday evening, August 23rd at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion in Gilford, said of the tour’s 2009 final destination in the Lakes Region, “Beautiful part of the country, New Hampshire. It’s our first time playing in Gilford. We’re looking forward to somewhere with a bit of scenery.”
On the heels of our sister Division of Travel & Tourism Development’s recent “I Love It Here!” promotion which featured celebrities (author Jodi Piccoult and “Dancing With the Stars” host Tom Bergeron among many others) holding signs demonstrating the love of our state, this recent plug for New Hampshire just adds credence to what Granite Staters have known all along – that New Hampshire is a great place to live, complete with cultural amenities, excitement and scenic natural beauty.
