Favorite Concert

Wow! It has been over a month since I last blogged. I have to admit, I have been playing on Facebook and have neglected this site. Sorry folks!

So...Question of the Week:
What is the best concert that you have been to?

Aside from the great jams I am privileged to hear in my living room when my aunt, uncle and Sabi play, the best concert I have experienced was a Oscar D'Leon and Celia Cruz. It was my first time seeing both performers. I went to the concert in SF and wasn't sure what to expect. There was seating around tables but mainly there was open floor for dancing. I was at the very front and had a great view of everything. Oscar D'Leon and his group played for over 2 hours I think. They were amazing. Celia Cruz's flight was delayed so she didn't arrive until sometime after 11. She was hot! Celia performed for over an hour. I was so amazed at her too. The music was great, the people in the audience were fabulous and spirits were high. It was an unforgettable night.

I really haven't been to many concerts. I think total, I've been to like four or five.

If I had to pick from those though, I would say Bush back in '98. My friend's dad gave me free tickets and they were pit seats, so I got really, really close to the stage. It was so much fun, too because it was the first concert I'd ever been to on my own.

*sigh* It is so nice to see that I haven't been forgotten after not blogging for a long time!

You are right La Brown Girl. First concerts are awesome. My first concert was to see Berlin. They played at Great America. I saw them with my dad and brother. I didn't care that they were tagging along because I was at the concert!!!
