You couldn’t pay me to go to anybody’s concert. At 72 just not my thing anymore.
That's what I used to say, but a couple of years ago the kids bought us tickets to a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH. I had no idea what to expect. I was captivated by the solo and ensemble singing, and by the guitar playing. 2.5 hours without a break.

When Paul O'Neill first conceived Trans-Siberian Orchestra, his goal was as straightforward as it was incredibly ambitious. "The whole idea," he explains, "was to create a progressive rock band that would push the boundaries (of the genre) further than any group before... Way, way further."

I wouldn't pay a dollar to see her. But I know young millennials that would. I would pay that much to see Dolly Parton though.

I love that Orchestra. Awesome music. The updated version of that group could possibly be "For King and Country". Awesome group also.

Back in 2019 , I started working on arranging our "Trip of a lifetime" for 2020. We were going to the Vienna Philharmonic New Year Concert.
We were going to take a cruise ship to Portsmouth, England, and train to through Germany to Vienna.
By the time I had arranged the cruise, the trains, and hotels for the whole trip and was signed up for the lottery draw for the seats for New Year's Eve and New Year Day. That was getting close to ten Grand, and by the time we counted in the regular dining and such for the trip would easily been over ten Gs.
Well, we all know how 2020 turned out. With the exception of one hotel in England, I managed to recover all the deposits and fees.

If the opportunity for such a trip came along again, I might decide to spend the money for it. But Even if Elvis came back, I wouldn't drop that kind of dough on a one night show.

I really like TSO. Won tickets off the radio a few years ago, and then paid to see them again a couple of years later.
The last concert I saw was a Pink Floyd tribute band called Brit Floyd. I was fortunate enough to see PF back in the day and these guys are as close as it comes to the real thing.

I’ve only been to two outdoor concerts in my life. The 1st was in 1980. In Hershey Park PA. We saw Air Supply. My kids were on cloud nine. That was also when we started camping
The 2nd time was around 1988 at a lobster festival in Rockland ME. We saw Dixie’s Chicks. It was a free concert and it was when they were just starting out as a trio.

Ironically, my first outdoor concert was in '72 and included Santana, It's a Beautiful Day, and the Guess Who. My last outdoor concert was at an air show in Harrison, Arkansas around 2008, and it was the Guess Who.

Never been to an outdoor concert. Couldn't get motivated to go.

This one was held at a football stadium. We were in the bleaches but many of the people went right down on the field so that’s what we did. I must admit it was a lot of fun and my kids still talk about it.
