10 On Tuesday

This is a timely topic - mainly because we have been seeing a fair amount of concerts lately. Get ready for a laugh - I have seen some interesting one.   10 Groups or Individuals I Have Seen in Concert.

1. Adam Ant. He was my first concert and I had to beg my parents to go when I was 16.  They agreed to let us go with our friends older sister.  I guess I can't blame then.  The Calderone Theater in NY's Hempstead was not a great place to hang out back in the day.
2.  Chicago.  What a great band.  I saw them back in the mid 80's.
3.  Zebra.  If you don't come from Long Island you may not know who they are.  I wasn't a huge fan growing up but my hubby and his best friend were.  We saw them this past weekend.  The above picture was from a concert last year that we went to.
4.  World Premier Band.  We saw them a couple of weeks ago.  Another local band that is fantastic!  If you go see them be prepared to dance for 4 hours straight.  We plan on going again in late July.
5.  Billy Joel.  If you come from Long Island chances are you have seen him in concert.  And he was awesome.
6.  Frankie Valli.  One of my hubby's favorites.  We usually go see him every couple of years.  He still sounds great at his age.
7.  Chris Brown.  This was when Nicole was too young to go to concerts on her own.  I think we have seen him about 4 times.  I'm not sure if he has any concerts coming up or if he's still in prison (or maybe it's rehab?)
8.  Amy Grant.  I remember going into NYC to see her when I was pregnant.  She was wonderful.
9.  Gloria Estefan.  That was another get up and dance a lot concert.  I had just had Nicole so there wasn't quite so much dancing for me.
10.  We haven't gone yet but are going in  a couple of weeks - Jayzee and Beyonce.  It was a total fluke that we got these tickets so Nicole and I are going.  We are just praying for good weather since it's at Gillette Stadium.

Gosh now that I think about it we have seen a bunch of concerts - Chaka Khan, Paula Abdul, Color Me Bad, Aerosmith.... I guess we like some music!

Join us over at Carole's and let us know who you have seen!

Oh, I'm so jealous that you saw Chicago live. I grew up listening to them (one of my dad's favorites). I never did see Amy Grant, and I bet Gloria Estefan was amazing live! Hope you have nice weather for your upcoming concert! ~Lisa :)

Excellent list. I think Beyonce is gorgeous so I'll be waiting for you to confirm that once you've seen her in person.

Holy moly--I'm green with envy at your concert list! (in a good way) What fun shows.

Bonny said...

What a great and varied list! I'm also jealous of Chicago; I bet those trumpets sounded far better live than they did on the albums I wore out in the 70s!

Tracey said...

wow, you've seen a lot.
I would love to see Frankie Valli in concert. Have you seen Jersey Boys advertised? Looks good.
I've only seen one concert and that was Jimmy Buffet.
