Summer Of The Concerts!

2 Mar

I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am for this spring/summer season!!! Not only will I be wrapping up school and getting excited for what craziness the summer holds, I will also be attending some of the most amazing concerts of the entire year!

At the beginning of 2013 I made a choice that this year I would try to attend as many concerts as I possibly could. They are one of the greatest events you could ever attend. The combination of a night out on the town, a live crowd, and everyone just having an amazing time watching the artist perform their heart out on the stage, is a feeling beyond compare. I don’t know about everyone else, but whenever I leave a concert I feel on top of the world.

So who am I going to see?

Rihanna

The very first concert that I’m attending this year is Rihanna’s Diamond World Tour on March 18th!!! As controversial of a star she is, it’s hard to deny that Rihanna has the ability to knock out hit after hit. As I wrote earlier in a previous blog, I’ve really loved her ‘Unapologetic’ CD and I cannot wait to see her in concert.

Bruno Mars

The second concert I’m going to see is the Bruno Mars Moonshine Jungle World Tour! Bruno Mars has proven to be an amazing performer. After watching his previous Grammy performances and his acoustic performances on YouTube, I can only imagine how incredible his concert along with his enthusiastic band will be! To add the cherry on top, Ellie Goulding will be his opening act 🙂

Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z!!!!

Okay! Let’s be honest, I don’t even know how they were able to get two of the biggest stars to go on tour together. Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z in one concert is mind blowing. I’ve been a fan of Justin since his N’SYNC days, I was a fan when he broke out as a solo artist and I was even a fan when he left music to be an actor. Now that he’s back in action and bringing Jay-Z, one of the industries most respected artists on tour with him, this concert is without a doubt going to be out of this world. Words can’t describe how excited and privileged I feel to have a ticket to this event.

BEYONCÉ

To top it all off, I will be attending one of the most anticipated concerts of the entire year. Everybody knows that Beyoncé can siinnnggggg, but more importantly everyone knows that Beyoncé is a world class performer! She is an artist that leads her soul out on the stage and gives every performance all of her effort for her loving crap. Shortly after her Super Bowl performance, she announced that she was going to be going going on a world tour. Seeing that Beyoncé is my favorite singer of all time, I need that these tickets to be hard to get, but necessary. After a lot of research I was able to get access to a ticket sale before they went on sale to the general public, and I was able to obtain two priceless tickets. This concert is truly the greatest icing on the cake for all the concerts that I will be attending and I can almost guarantee it will be the greatest of them all!!

Needless to say I think it’s clear I have a lot to look forward to in the near future, and I hope to be blogging about my experiences at each of these concerts as they come.

Natalie (Song Sundays)

20 Jan

My song of the week is ‘Natalie’ by Bruno Mars.

Last Sunday I finally downloaded Bruno Mars’ latest album ‘Unorthodox Juxebox’ and after his last album ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ I had very high expectations for his latest music. Luckily for me I wasn’t disappointed. The album was a great mix of pop, blues and a touch of reggae.

Besides his chart topper ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’, one song that really jumped out at me was ‘Natalie’. It first caught my attention because the title of the song is the same name as one of my best friends, so I had to listen to it first.

The song talks about a girl who took advantage of him and stole all of money and he’s talking about and plotting his revenge. I thought it was really interesting and very different from songs we’re used to hearing about, which generally deal with love and heartbreak. I’m not quite sure if this song was written about actual experiences in Bruno Mars’ life, but the the lyrics and the composition of the song really created an authentic feel and that’s why it’s my song of the week.
