Fave concert performance you attended?

Recommended Posts

Anyone a fan and enjoy going to concerts? What was your favorite concert you attended and why?

 

I went to Bumbershoot in Seattle a few years ago and got to see a ton of bands, comedians, and performers and really hit all my sweet spots as far as musical diversity. The Bouncing Souls rocked it out and brought back fond memories of chasing after boys with mohawks, lol. I was introduced to a crazy funk/rock/electronic band from Columbia called Bomba Estereo. The lead is a woman and she just killed it, reminded me of a sexy femme version of Zach de la Rocha(RATM leadman)! They were singing/rapping in Spanish and I was still caught up and dancing around like a besotted fool. Another big highlight was seeing Mary J. Blige and knowing that she could carry a tune and didn't need the lip syncing to blow up the stage. Her voice was beautiful and sounded better live, raw and emotional.

The best concert I have ever attended was The Journey concert in West Valley, UT recently.

That story is funny because it was a gift from my hubby for our 1st wedding anniversary. He asked me if we want to go to HI or watch the concert to UT because we were weighing the expenses each would incur. He gave me until that night but after 10secs, i said UT. icon_cheesygrin.gif He even got us VIP passes which was awesome!

 

We sat in front row. Saw Pat Benatar and the LoverBoy for opening performance. I am 29 so I am not so familiar with their songs, but man, I love their songs than the songs out now. Hubby even got one of Deen Castronovo's drumstick!

1000

 

 

Reason why we wanted to see them is the inspiring story of their lead vocals, Arnel Pineda. We are both Filipinos and it is a great accomplishment that one among your fellowmen are soaring high in that kind of industry.

 

Best anniversary gift! No regrets!

The original lead singer is still very much alive, but parted ways with the band and refuses to rejoin..ever..I do like Journey's new frontman; he's sounds great, right? I love Journey! I grew up listening to them and every time I hear that song.."When The Lights Go Down" it reminds me of my mom..That was one of her fave songs and I can still remember being a kid and  watching her sway and hum that song softly. Awesome way to spend your anniversary..I'm jelly lol!

The Dixie Chicks!! I miss them~!  They are such cool people, orginals, and i LOVE their songs and videos.

 I'm partially deaf . so to me, if people don't make videos (esp w/ CC (closed captions).. I don't listen or find new songs, to watch.

 

Goodbye Earl, was hilarious and their other videos invoked every other emotion, sad, happy, romantic, fun, etc.

 

Their stage show was very visual and fun. I think I'd like Taylors Swifts concert, tho I'm probably too old, lol.

My friend is partially deaf; I remember we saw Justin Timberlake for her bday one year and she really dug that..He puts on such a killer performance with the dancing and stage fare...she loved it! Never think you're too old to be going to any kind of concert..you'd be surprised at people you see, all ages, shapes and sizes..you're just coming together to rock out to some killer tunes..who cares? Lol, think of all the older women who flock to Justin Beiber concerts and stuff lol!

Last year I scored tickets to see MTV's VMAs and it was amazing! I was a stage fan and was in the front row inches away from Lady Gaga and Neyo.  There were so many amazing performers like Jay Z and Kanye West, Adele, Bruno Mars tribute to Amy Winehouse and Pitbull!  I also went to Good Morning America's summer concert series last year with Lady Gaga and she was truly incredible.

The one that changed my life was Poison/Skid Row/Vince Neil at USANA in Utah a few years ago (kind of a long story there).

 

But the one I STILL get smiles about was Bob Seger last year.

 

 

 

(And I only go to about 30 concerts a year, so it's not like I've got a lot to choose from)

Since student life, I've attended several musical galas, festivals and concerts with full of fun, comedy and music but if you ask about the most memorable ones then Jimmy Buffett & Friends concert at The Beach, Gulf Shores and Kenny Chesney Flora-Bama were the best. One was held in 2010 and second one was organized in 2014. However, on the big demand of kids, I have bought tickets of upcoming concert of Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell & Jon Langston ma. It will be held in Birmingham of Alabama. Yeah! as a mom of music enthusiast teens, I'd taken holidays from my work as well.

The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar)
He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️
All the crowd of fans were going insane about him :) I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts :)

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
