Bucket List Fridays - Concert Edition
Due to a certain conversation at work, I've decided to start a new blog series called Bucket List Fridays. Basically, I'll be picking a subject a week (and ideas are encouraged and welcomed) and listing my top 5 bucket list items for that subject. I will try to forgo my usual 1000 word essay on the who's and why's and just stick to the list, but I can't promise anything! Oh, and please feel free to join me because I'd love to hear other people's views on the same topics.
This week's topic is concerts, more specifically, who are my top 5 bands to see in concert. I haven't been to a lot of concerts in my life, and I've seen Duran 13 times (which is about three times as much as all my other concerts put together), but there are still bands and/or singers who I'd like to see before I die (although the odds are extremely unlikely).
#1: DURAN DURAN
This will always be #1...no matter how many times I see them, it's NEVER enough.
#2: TAKE THAT
Obviously, this would require a visit to Britian, but if the stars all align right...
#3: DARREN HAYES
Granted, he hasn't put out an album in years, but I still love him and I know how good he is live.
#4: DEPECHE MODE
I've got several of their concerts on DVD, so I know what a great live band they are, I'd just really like to see for myself!
#5: THE CURE
Hence the reason for this series...their new tour is taking them close enough for a day trip (Kansas City), so I texted my Sister to see if she might want to go. She asked if they were coming to Chicago since we've talked about going back there again on a museum trip, and since they are, we just might do it! I still have to get the money together for the tickets, but it's looking pretty good...one bucket item list might actually get checked off this year!
I'm not sure what next Friday's list is yet, but if anyone is interested in joining me, I'll be sure to decide on something.
