In my early teen years I would have loved nothing more than a busy concert with pounding music and hordes of excitable folks, However I
was too lazy to organise going to a concert never got that opportunity to go to a concert till I was in my late teens and in fact I was a stand in for my friend who had paid for tickets and had someone drop out …
Saying yes to go and see the Spice Girls in Sheffield in September 1998 was probably not something I would have been quite so excitable about had there not have been copious amounts of alcohol at the time of agreeing! … The spice Girls were never really my bag … even if my friend made signs and decided we all ought to have a ‘spice name’ .. hers was ‘Smokin Spice’, her other friend was ‘Specky Spice’ and I was ‘Skint Spice’
.. oh dear is all I can say on that one.
I did go to an outdoor concert in Sherwood Pines in which I watched Beautiful South in glorious sunshine .. till halfway through the heavens opened and I in my wisdom and lacking in a coat, decided to wear a bin liner for the remainder of the concert!
In my defence all I can say is regardless of the plastic bin liner … at least I finally gave up smoking instead .. even if bin liner wearing seems to have been a theme throughout my life.
Now I am classed as a fully fledge adult (when did that happen) I have to say I do feel slightly peeved at myself at the little effort I invested as a young adult to see more bands, go to more concerts and generally get out the bin liner and experience the music I loved.
In the late 90’s I always wanted to see Oasis live, but was far to lazy to do anything about it and now that’s too late, however Noel Gallagher it seems I am not too late to see as he has a new English rock band ‘Flying High Birds’.
OK it might not be Oasis but still Noel Gallagher Tickets at the O2 still have to be considered surely?
Maybe if I got to see Noel I should leave the bin liners at home right?
Who have you ever seen in concert?
