In the original post, I lamented speeding downhill towards 60 and wanting to make up for lost time. My mission? To catch every favourite rock artist in concert, before they or I croaked. In other words, a concert “Bucket List”.
Read it HERE.
When I left off, we had just obtained tickets for Neil Young with Crazy Horse in Nov. and The Who in Feb. Both of those experiences were absolutely incredible and I was in a state of euphoria for days! Even more amazing now, I’m finally getting my chance to see:
THE ROLLING STONES!!!
Many of you will scoff.
You: They’re so old!
Me: Yeah, so? They’re still talented and put on a great show. Besides, we’re old too.
You: The ticket prices are ridiculous!
Me: True! Our lousy seats in the nosebleed section, (that’s all we could afford),
cost more than the best seats at any other concert, but, I don’t care.
This is the first time I’ve been able to go and it’s now or never.
Can’t wait for June 6!
I LOVE THE STONES!!
Old?? So what!!
Next up will be a third HEART concert on July 23. Those ladies were just inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and it was WAY overdue. Check out my recent article HERE.
Our last concert this year, (so far), slated for Aug. 14, will be none other than “The Prince of Darkness” himself, Ozzy Osbourne, reunited with Black Sabbath! I was thrilled to find out they were back together and recording a new album, but hadn’t considered getting tickets, (our budget was blown with the Stones). Much to my surprise, hubby expressed an interest when I read the concert announcement aloud, so I went ahead and made the purchase. I knew he was just humouring me with Mick & Co., because he doesn’t care for them, so I decided to add one he does like. (We both love Heart, so, that’s good.)
This should be interesting!
Yes indeed! 😀
Are there any “MUST SEE” concerts on your list?
