This is the part where I admit I’m a rather boring person…
Because I haven’t been to that many concerts. Either due to timing, the cost of tickets, and they’re not really my thing.
So, I have been to a few concerts, otherwise, I wouldn’t know they aren’t my thing. I’ve been to a Roch Voisine concert in Montreal, and still can’t believe my mom kept that a surprise for so long. I’ve been to many a classical concert done by the CPO in Calgary, from the classic Beethoven to video games live concerts. I’ve also been to a few live performances at the Stampede scattered here and there, but other than that, I’ve never really been to any big concerts for the bands I love.
I’d much rather see a musical or a play, as I find those are more interesting. I think the times I’ve seen Wicked, or plays at the Pumphouse Theater in Calgary are more memorable to me than actual concerts I’ve been to. Also, for those that live in Calgary, Loose Moose improv is hilarious, and they sell really long Twizzlers at intermission, so you should definitely go see them.
Don’t get me wrong, though, if someone handed me Hedley or Imagine Dragons tickets, I would totally go. But otherwise, I’m going to save that money for now and buy myself a coffee (or five).
