I’m a little behind on this but I had a busy weekend that was pretty much glorious. I drove to Atlanta (my first road trip alone) to meet my best friend. We had tickets for the Picasso at the Wheel 2015 tour Friday night and The Main Event 2015 tour Saturday night. It was lots of driving and staying up late and listening to music and fangirling and very little sleep. Did I mention it was glorious?!
It’s no secret that I love concerts so it was a perfect weekend. I’ve been lucky enough to see Train live multiple times but I was super excited about seeing them, The Fray and Matt Nathanson on Friday. Unfortunately we missed Matt because we arrived late but The Fray and Train were great. Pat from Train brought out Isaac (The Fray) and Matt to do a song with him. They were a great trio. So fun.
On Saturday we had a late lunch with Ashley’s brother for his birthday then she and I got ready and headed to Phillips Arena. I’ve been a huge fan of boybands all of my life. New Kids on the Block were my first celebrity crushes (especially Joe) but I never got to see them in concert. To say I was looking forward to this show is an understatement. The openers were Nelly (omg!) and TLC (so emotional).
Nelly was very high energy and performed all the songs we know and love. The crowd was loud and really into him. I’m so glad he was part of this tour.
TLC was so fun to see. When they started singing songs I can remember from my childhood it felt like we were stepping back in time. They did a beautiful tribute to Lisa at the beginning of Chasing Waterfalls. It was so lovely and well done. Even for her parts of other songs they had a track of her singing. I loved that.
OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. These guys. NKOTB were fantastic. Dancing and moving all over the stage. Their vocals were great. They did old and new songs and I don’t think we stopped singing the entire time they were on stage. There was a cute wardrobe change camera as well as a couple of other fun things. Joe did a solo of Sweet Dreams. There was shirtlessness and a lot of it was such a blur because I was so excited about finally seeing them in concert. If you get the chance you need to go!
My next concerts are Sam Smith and FOB. Can’t wait!
So how was your weekend?
