It's something I'd denied myself for years. Theatre has a way of eating up all your time and bandwidth.
Oh, I would attend something on occasion, but I would say it's only in the past ten years that I really got into going out. I had a list of legacy artists to see before I, or they, kicked off and, for once, a bit of spare change... so, for a period of about five years, I was attending something almost every other week - concerts, theatre, musicals, dance.
I was just in the process of resisting the allure of attending concerts when Covid-19 shut everything down.
1/ Your First? Your most recent?
2/ Who have you seen? Who's still on your bucket list? Wish list?
3/ Merchandise? Concert Program?
A hard pass. I see it, but am never tempted. I don't need anymore tee shirts. I only like wearing white cotton ones. Those logos and stuff? They make me sweat. And concert programs? No. I'm not a collector anymore. I keep the ticket stubs. I think they're cool and enough of a souvenir.
6/ Best Bargain? Most Expensive?
Best Bargain: Always Gay Pride concerts in Loring Park. Tickets are super cheap and it's a party. Missed going this year. Who they offer up is always a pleasant surprise. Plus, there's a beer tent and and a VIP tent and the artists stick around after the show. The warm up acts are always as good as the main show.
7/ Favorite Venue? Least Favorite? Strangest Venue?
8/ Have you met an artist after the show?
10/ Had you purchased tickets for a show that was postponed due to Covid-19?
