My Live Music Addiction : Bruno Mars Edition

Over the past two years, I've been learning about myself. As detailed in the post Rachel shared on her blog today. Go check her out by the way. Sweet girl!

Anyway, one thing I've learned about me, is that I LOVE live music. I love music anyway. I'm always singing. I studied voice in college. I teach voice lessons now. Always have music on. Music music music. A dear friend of mine was always traveling to concerts and festivals and I found myself reading his blog and looking at his instagram feed and feeling INSANELY jealous.

But why be jealous Whit? Just start going to concerts yourself! It started out small. I went to a Maroon 5 concert a few summers back. It was amazing. Then I started adding more and more.

This past 12 months has been The Year of Concerts....

Bruno Mars
Under the Sun Tour
Ariana Grande (This was for Boomer...)
Arctic Monkeys
Demi Lovato
Bruno Mars

Oh yeah....he was so amazing...I paid to see him twice.

This past weekend I drove up to Cleveland with a girl friend of mine from high school and her husband to see Mr. Mars and his band rock the house. He did not disappoint.





* Side note- No one was in Columbus this past weekend. As I scrolled through my feed I realized that all my friends were either in Cincinnati for Beyonce and Jay Z or Cleveland for Bruno! *

Anyway I was literally on my feet all night. His opening act was Aloe Blacc (from I'm The Man fame) and he was great too. I'm going to have to check out more of his music for sure! Then out came Bruno and I did not stop shaking it, and singing all night long!



I confess. I would search for tickets to his Pennsylvania show...but I need to move in a few months so its time to chill out.

However, the Under the Sun tour is coming back in a few weeks. Then Lorde...Ed Sheeran....

Music, Music, Music!!!!!!!!!!

I love live music too but the problem is that the Gen Xers ruined it. When I was in my 20 and went to see music - you sat your butt down in an assigned seat or on the lawn and only got up to dance for a few songs. Who is going to stand for entire concert? I wasn't in 1984, 1994 and sure not in 2014. Now venues don't have seats. So I don't know. But I'm pretty happy with the $400 yes $400 I spent for my Fleetwood Mac tickets... You know the good stuff - the Prince Consort and I will probably be some of the youngest people there...
