Concerts, etc.

One of my favorite things to do is to attend various musical productions, such as concerts, musicals, and other various shows.  There's something about live music that pulls me in, and I get totally caught up in the moment.  I thought I'd highlight a few shows that I went to last year (and never blogged about...bad, Kristen!) in anticipation of the shows I have scheduled to go to this year.

1.  We went Old School with Loverboy, Pat Benatar, and Journey.  Amazing!

2.  We also went to a country powerhouse show.  Even though Joel's not a fan of country, he was a good sport.  We saw Eden's Edge, the Eli Young Band, Little Big Town, and my all time favorite, Rascal Flatts.  This was my first big country show, and it definitely did not disappoint.

3.  If you don't know by now, I am a huge musical theater junkie.  I've been blessed to see many shows all over the world.  One of my favorite shows, Phantom of the Opera, has starred many a talent, and my favorite Phantom by far is Ramin Karimloo.  He held a small show for his new project, singing Bluegrass, at a venue in Chicago.  He is my Michael Crawford.  Brilliant.  He has also played Jean Val Jean in Les Miserables.  If you haven't heard of him, look him up and listen.  You won't regret it.

I am so excited to see some shows this year!  Have anything your looking forward to this summer?

We saw the Loverboy/Benatar/Journey concert when it came to Wyoming last year! Brad loooooooved Loverboy. Pat Benetar sat the whole time and looked old and I was super disappointed with Journey. We thought it would be the complete opposite! Go figure :)

I haven't been to a concert in a long time, but I did see Pat Benatar a few years ago. She was still totally rocking.
