I love concerts

I’ve been to lots of concerts – everything from Liza Minnelli (seriously) to Talib Kweli, N*Sync, Destiny’s Child and everything in between – mainly because I love music (especially a good live show) and simply because they’re a really fun activity to do with your boyfriend, friends, family, etc. Some of my favorite memories in the world are enjoying a concert at Jones Beach on a warm summer evening. Do you love going to concerts?

Some of my favorite concerts:

Jack Johnson (Comcast Center, MA) – because he’s my favorite

Pearl Jam and U2 (Aloha Stadium, HI) – great combo/it was in Hawaii/I met Jack Johnson at the concert. Life in Hawaii is good!

Nelly (Nassau Coliseum, NY) – because I was a sophomore in high school and thought I was thebomb.com, plus Kelly Rowland came on stage and sang ‘Dilemma

The Doobie Brothers (Westbury Music Fair, NY) – because I was about 15 years old and went to a Doobie Brothers concert with my parents. So fun!

Britney Spears (Nassau Coliseum, NY) – one of my first concerts I ever went to – I’ve always been a big Britney fan and I’m not ashamed of it!

James Taylor (Jones Beach, NY) – because he is absolutely perfect live. I’ve grown up listening to him and we always go as a family which is very nice. His music always reminds me of happy times with my family

The Sprite Liquid Mix Tour featuring Jay-Z, NERD, 311, Nappy Roots, and more (Jones Beach, NY) – Jay-Z is my all time favorite rapper. Great show

Brad Paisley (Gillette Stadium, MA) – One word for you = Countryfest. Friends, grilling, drinks, warm weather, good music…doesn’t get much better than that

Sara Bareilles (House of Blues, Boston) – I love her. Was my first time at HOB Boston, great place, great show!

Billy Joel and Elton John (Nassau Coliseum, NY) – The Piano Man, Crocodile Rock, Downeaster Alexa, Benny and the Jets? Dueling pianos? Yes please!

John Mayer (Central Park, NYC) – Summer. Light rain. Central Park. John Mayer. Pretty romantic. Loved every minute of it

Josh Turner (The South Shore Music Circus, Hingham MA) – Colin and I had such a romantic little date at the Josh Turner concert last summer

George Strait and Blake Shelton (Tinley Park, IL) – My girlfriends from Boston were visiting me in Chicago. I was elated!

Saw Doctors (Nokia Theatre, NYC) – New York, St. Patrick’s Day weekend and a band from Ireland? Guaranteed good time

Dave Matthews Band (Randall’s Island, NY) – Come on! Everybody has to go to a DMB concert at some point in their lives

Green Day (Giants Stadium) – Mary and I met tons of randos at this concert, made up a few fake names, and rocked out. I still chuckle when I think of this night. Plus, Dookie? Amazing album. My mom took that away from us when we were little! teehee

The Counting Crows (Grant Park, Chicago) – A free concert in the middle of a beautiful park? Singing Mr. Jones? Sign me up!

  1. I also love concerts, and am gearing up for an awesome summer of them! Did you see that Sara Bareilles is at the BoA Pavilion at the end of August? Nothing like live music and an outdoor venue =)

  2. The green day concert was more than just a concert. I think you will agree it was a life changing experiance especially since we also went to the angel lounge that same night.
