This summer has been a blast. Which I find really weird for me to say considering that I have a very strong dislike for summer. That being said, I’ve made it to a couple of concerts and have a couple in the works by the time fall comes around.
First, it was Sublime with Rome. What can I say? I’ve been a long time Sublime fan. I was a tad concerned on how a new singer would be. But to be honest, if I didn’t know there was a new singer, I probably wouldn’t have noticed much. That’s how good he is. It was at Saturday in the Park which is a free music festival in my town.
Melissa Ethridge was the main act but I was there for Sublime. Not that she’s bad, but I only know a couple of her songs. I had all sorts of plans to watch her sing Come To My Window to see if she even compares to my rendition. But then we had some more beers and then there is the fact that no one wanted to come to the stage with me. So I missed it.
Last week was the kicker for me. My friends and I drove to St. Paul, MN to see Beyonce!!!!!!!!!! If I could, I would fill this page with lots of exclamation points. I’m not her biggest fan by any means. But come on. It’s Beyonce. She probably gave the best concert that I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to tons. She sang live the whole time while dancing in 6 inch stiletto heels. I know. I know. All concerts should be sang live. But I’ve seen my fair share of lip synchers in my time. Our seats were alright but it didn’t matter. The two screens they had up were so great that it was like you were right there. I’ll say it again. Best. Concert. Ever!!!!!
Coming up in a couple of weeks, I’ll be taking my niece to her first concert, Big Time Rush and Victoria Justice. I really have no idea who these people are. I mentioned something to my mom and she said my niece would freak out if she went. So I put in for suite tickets and got them. They were part of her First Communion gift and she did a major freak out. I’m officially the coolest Aunt eva!!!!!!!
In September, we are hoping to take Jack to his first concert. Bridget Mendler is performing at the Clay County Fair! Jeremy and I are huge music fans so I’m super excited to be taking Jack. Hopefully this will start some new traditions for our family. I keep telling Jeremy that Jack reeeeaaallly wants to go etc. But we all know that I totally want to go. What can I say? I love me some Good Luck Charlie. I’ve been looking for local contests to get meet n greet passes because I would love to see his face if he meets her. I remember like it was yesterday when I met my first celebrity. I was 12 and I met Wanye from Boyz II Men at the mall before their concert.
Have you been to any summer concerts?
