Re: Poll: Concerts

  • 1.  First concert you went to and age:  I was a freshman in college at UNK (so 18/19?), but I can't remeber who it was - some group that was semi-popular at the time came and played at UNK

    EDIT:  It was Vertical Horizon and  Five for Fighting

    2. Most recent concert/upcoming show you have tickets to:  Most recent concert I went to was Dave Matthews at Wrigley Field last September.  So freaking cool.  We were down on the field and the closest to the stage any of us had ever been

    3. If money wasn't an option, who would you love to see:  I've seen Dave enough that I don't think I'd say him anymore, and he's really the only one I'd pay to see.  So I'll say U2 for my hubby.

    4. How far have you traveled for a concert:  My first Dave concert - West Troy, WI I think...

  • I <3 concerts. I've been to over 100 concerts in my many years. 

     

    1.  First concert you went to and age:   INXS at age 13.  They were my first love.

    2. Most recent concert/upcoming show you have tickets to:  Nothing.  I'm bummed. 

    3. If money wasn't an option, who would you love to see:  Almost anyone if money wasn't an object.  Sting/Police (again), Kid Rock (again), DMB (for the 15th time), George Strait (again, you get the picture).  I was trying to think of someone I haven't seen that I would like to and came up blank. 

    4. How far have you traveled for a concert:  Chicago a few times for DMB. And to KC and Des Moines a few times. Dave is my current love for a concert going experience.

    I grew up about 15mins from there and used to work as part of the Emergency Medical team. Pretty much the best summer side job ever. We saw some great concerts - free! I miss RR too. We are going "home" in a couple of weeks for a wedding and I can't wait!
