since i've started this blog, i haven't really expressed how much i love music and how important it is in my life - i hope to change this and share some new findings and old experiences. so, let's start with the first, shall we? i get the feeling sometimes when people are asked about their first concert, they might be embarrassed or think it's funny looking back at who they saw. like, "oh it was new kids on the block, i was 8, hahaha!" (of which, i might be a little jealous, shhhh) but i love sharing my first real concert experience. when i turned 10, my parents took me to see sir elton john at the cajun dome in lafayette. it was during "the one" tour and was beyond phenomenal. i probably had gone to some local band shows in our home town, and had attended many musical events since my mom has always been involved in music; but that was my first real, full-on experience at a concert. i remember dancing and doing the "crocodile rock" with my big sis, and crying when he sang "candle in the wind." it was beautiful, and an experience i'll always hold dear.
so what about you? what was your first real concert??
