I’ve had a list in my head for about 8 years now of people I would pay money to see in concert. I love music. A lot. I love listening to music, I love playing music (only when I’m alone), I love singing music (either alone in the shower/car or karaoke under unique circumstances), and I LOVE live music. However, I don’t love how expensive concert tickets are. Therefore, to prevent splurging on concerts left and right (which would be a very real possibility without the list), I’ve created the list.
I prefer to keep only about five people on it at a time, so it’s truly exciting and special when one of them comes to town. And if they’re on the list there’s pretty much no price I wouldn’t pay. If they’re here, I’m there. The list as of college:
1. Jewel (check!)
2. Dixie Chicks (check!)
3. Indigo Girls (check!)
4. Bryan Adams
5. David Gray
So you can imagine my excitement when seeing a Bryan Adams poster on the wall of Elmo’s on Saturday. I called this morning at 11 as soon as they opened, and purchased two tickets.
-2 points for 1) price (I’m willing to pay anything, but I still don’t like when they’re pricey) and 2) the harassment I’m getting for loving Bryan Adams so much. This doesn’t really bother me other than it’s going to be a little more difficult to find someone to use that second ticket. Because you better believe I’m not taking anyone who’s not willing to wear a side pony and sing along loudly to every single love song.
If you think you can hang, let me know. You’ll find a little teaser below…
