Best place to see a concert?
Best live show you've ever seen?
I would not say that I am very knowledgeable about music, albums, or concerts in general.
I enjoy all types of music.
From country to rock, folk and alternative.
Last year, I had the opportunity to see more live music than ever.
Partially, that's because I went to the country music festival in Nashville.
The festival was a fantastic way to see a lot of great music in a short time span. Even though I don't listen to a lot of contemporary country music, there were a lot of old favorites to watch. It was such a fun weekend to hop from show to show. We watched the Oakridge Boys at a big out door amphitheater, and our entire group got blasted on the jumbotron! It was quite memorable!
I probably saw a few local shows in 2015, but I can only really remember going to two. One of my favorite music experiences, was watching Lowland Hum at a local house concert. The band doesn't play big venues, nor should they. It is a husband and wife. When the wife sang, and the husband played, the entire living room was filled with angelic folk music. It was a very spiritual experience. Quite the opposite of seeing yourself cheering and dancing on a jumbotron, but much more real.
This year, I only have tickets to three concerts. All three are in huge amphitheater arenas. Not my favorite. I much prefer seeing a band at an outdoor spot like the Starlight in KC, or even the Amphitheater at Downstream. In January, we saw the Red Hot Chilli Peppers at the BOK in Tulsa. We had a great view of the light show, and the music was fabulous but it wasn't my favorite concert experience.
