I haven’t been to many concerts in my life. I would probably say it’s mostly motivated by who do I really want to see in person enough to deal with a monster crowd for hours on end compared to the cost of the ticket. There’s a cost benefit analysis element for me. See? I’m a nerd. That’s ok.
Add in the concerts that I have seen and my nerdy goose is proverbially cooked. When I was a tween my very first concert was to see the Osmonds. I really don’t remember much about the concert. I do remember that we watched the TV show every week. I watched Donny & Marie in “Goin’ Coconuts”. I hate to say it but I think the user reviews in that link might have been a little generous. I wasn’t in love with Donny then though, I was in love with Merrill. He was just cuter. Donny was too reckless. (I wasn’t in love with Luke Skywalker when Star Wars came out either – Harrison Ford all the way.) I did however love watching Donny and Marie every week so I know I loved the concert.
My second concert was when I was 18 years old. I went with my parents and Kevin to see Neil Diamond. That was a great concert for me. “Forever in Bluejeans”, “I Am… I Said”. I was in heaven. His was one of my favorite cassettes. His show at the time didn’t disappoint (lots of lasers).
The last concert I went to see was Alabama on their Farewell Tour. So many songs they sang remind me of high school and dating my husband that I had to go to this concert. It was a fabulous night for me.
So now you know. Hey, being a nerd isn’t so bad. Actually maybe I should go back to the methodical creative thinker with above average intelligence. I really just has a good ring to it.
