Concert post - Past Due

Hey, folks!  The night before we left for Portland, I went to a concert with one of my gal pals here, and I never talked about it.  D'oh!  It's only semi-embarrassing to talk about.  It was Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees, and NKOTB.

Now, my very first concert ever was Boyz II Men, so it was a total flashback for me to go.  They opened the show, but I think they only sang about five songs, and the only uptempo one was Motownphilly.  While it was so cool and fun to hear them, it was cut way too short.

Next up was 98 Degrees.  While I am sure I swooned over them when they were popular, and I did enjoy seeing Nick and Drew Lachey, their performance was very underwhelming.  Many in the audience their their seats during this time.  I could have done without them and with more Boyz II Men, but that's not how the cookie crumbled.

Next was New Kids!  Now, this was more for my sister's age (mine was NSYNC), but I had still heard a few of their songs and at least knew the chorus.  The crowd was pumped, so it was really something spectacular.  I'm old enough I don't swoon over boy bands (especially when they've been performing sine I was 3), but we still had a great time.  And Donny actually made it with an audience member.  Seriously!!  It was crazy fun.

Jealous! My Facebook was full of concert posts when they were in the PNW. I was more of a BSB/Nsync fan, but that still would have been an awesome one to go to.
