I don’t go to concerts very often. I’m not a big fan of paying way too much money to stand and watch a concert. Yes, I’m one of those fuddie duddies. I’ve also never been to a really huge concert—meaning over 20,000 people at an indoor venue. We have an annual country music festival in our area called We Fest, but that’s an outdoor three-day long thing.
But maybe every other year I’ll get to a concert, and these are some that really stick out.
So What by Pink – Pink is definitely one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. No question. She has a lot of terrific songs, and is an awesome singer. But she also has a theatrical and wild show. I saw it this past winter and had no clue what was coming. All I can say is… I want to be like Pink. I’m not afraid of heights and I would love to do the things she did during the concert. This girl has one major workout routine that’d probably wear me out in five minutes. To be able to sing and perform like she does.
If you’re not aware of what she does at her show, this video is a good example. Fast forward to about 2:20. Seeing it on video doesn’t have as much effect as being there live, but you can see her freefall from hundreds of feet above the crowd. Again… I want to do that.
Fishing in the Dark by Sawyer Brown – I think I’ve said before that Sawyer Brown is one of my favorite country groups. I’ve seen them in concert several times. These guys have the best energy–especially for being old guys –and they are just fun to watch.
Boy in the Box by Corey Hart – Corey Hart was one of the first ‘big’ concerts I went to. Back in junior high, I think. I really don’t remember it, nor do I remember much about Corey Hart. I think he sort of faded out after his short time in the spotlight.
Another terrific concert I saw was Billy Joel and Elton John together—just a few years ago. The tickets were well worth the money. Those guys are legends in their own right, and together were so much fun.
I just picked a couple random BJ and EJ songs that I like.
What’s the most awesome concert you’ve seen?
