as the years roll along and you start to think about which queen or another concert you have seen,remember this..
cherish the moment,enjoy the gig.take pictures..
where i live(the backwaters of the scottish borders)there are no so called concert halls.
nearest best place edinburgh over an hour away,glasgow even further..
so it got me thinking??????,what concerts have i really seen..
simple answer.very few..
not just queen but a few smaller or... we used to be big bands ? concerts..
first real band i saw was blackfoot sue(ask your dad). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWaJ6vNyvaw
small local hotel just after there big hit..
next was a band called .bilbo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-p_0EIJ2bfA
another small hotel gig.
the the first time of a real concert.
the mighty fred and the guys giving it big time.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLqpaBMYynU&feature=fvst
first real big time concert,opened with ,teardrop explodes(heart was second night).
from then on it was a sort of non event for absolutley years..
then came 2008????
11th october to be exact.
now this was something special,why???????......because i was s50 the same day...
waited years to see the band again,,,with or without freddie.i didnt care.
took my kids to there first concert,front row seats......fantastic... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71cEVaQN5b4
nothing of course can live up to those two nights.82 and 2008.
so more small concerts followed.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCkQYF2DCnU
the above being bruce foxton(again ask your dads).
on the same bill was the guitar player from,big country,and his son...bruce something..
playing drums with from the jam was big countrys drummer...so technically i got ,big country,the jam lol.
next was a tribute band(saw them 2 times so were ok). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-koOdnISuk
the latest one was very strange..one guy and a music box lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQo1UdoaMbk
when pissed he was ok lol lol lol.
now next saturday i have to take my son to newcastle to see someone called....
30 seconds from mars...
never heard of them,never seen them.so fingers crossed they are ok...
but the point i am making is.......if you get the chance to go to a concert,big or small..go..
they dont have to be massive,,just enjoy.
and above all enjoy the night.....you never know.
it may be your last.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2RgpdAsDQA
