I've only been to one concert before. I went with my church youth group of about 200 people to a Harvest Christian Concert which had Leeland and Toby Mac performing. It was really fun! The amphitheater was packed with people from churches all across North Carolina, which was pretty cool. Also, hundreds of people became Christians that night which was awesome! I went home and sang Toby Mac songs all night, and bought the Leeland CD. (I had never heard of him before the concert.) Overall, it was a great experience and I hope I get to go to another one like it. (:

The last concert I went to, I was right up front--in the mosh pit. I couldn't see the people I had come with; they were somewhere far behind me, I later found out. It got pretty crazy, I could barley stand, being shoved right and left and not having enough room to move on my own. I fell at one point, all the way to the ground, and was practically getting stepped on. But there was another girl next to me, I hadn't noticed her before, she was my age, and was alone, like me. She helped me up. (It was hard, I had to do my own shoving, and she helped with that as well.) We kind of hung on to each other after that, and were harder to knock down. It was weird, being friends with a stranger for just a few minutes. Hanging on to each other for help, but not even knowing the others name.
We eventually got seperated, and that was the end of it. I met back up with the people I had come with when things died down.

Unfortunately, I haven't been to all that many exciting concerts. :(
I did see/hear my sister preform at Carnegie Hall, though, so that was pretty cool! Her chamber music group played a really interesting piece (the different parts made some harmonies that I hadn't heard all that much before!) and I was really proud of her making it that far! Her group is great; they really work together to put on great performances!

My most memorable concert experience was two years ago at the county fair. The main act was Josh Gracin and my mom had won front row tickets. At the end of the concert when he was doing the encore Josh Gracin came out into the crowd and he couldn't have been more than three feet away! He walked right past me and it was very exciting. All together his concert was amazing, but I'll never forget that I could have reached out and touched him as he walked past.

I've gone to a few great concerts in my life, one of which was Billy Joel (who is amazing and epic). The most recent concert that I went to, however, was Jack Johnson. One of my friends and I drove down to Massachusetts to see him (and we got lost in Boston, even though the concert was in Mansfield). After finding our way, we met up with my roommate from freshman year, and sat back to enjoy it. It was a great reunion for the group of us, and Jack Johnson was a better singer in person than his recordings (which happens very rarely).

So, my very first concert was a Hanson concert (you know, back in the 90s when Mmmbop and Where's the Love were huge hits). I was in fourth grade, and I went with my best friend, our little sisters, and (of course because we were young) our moms. I don't remember much about the concert other than thinking about how hot Zac was, how cool the tee-shirt I got was, and how embarrassing it was to be there with our mothers. As for most memorable concert, I would have to say The Eagles at Madison Square Garden last year. Though the tickets cost more than they should have (stupid ticket prices nowadays...), it was more than worth it. They played a three hour concert (impressive considering their ages) including just about every hit you can name, and they sound nearly as good as they did all those years ago (not that I was around, of course, but I do have the CDs). They even played three encores :)

My first concert was Nysnc. I loved them soo much. I mean, I still love the music (I move on from things, but I never start hating music I used too love usually). Most memorable besides that? Umm...I guess seeing The Academy Is and Panic! at the Disco for the first time. It was great.

I am a huge Idina Menzel fan - and I've always been bummed because I have never been able to see her live. Luckily for me, she came to Syracuse so I took a mini road trip out that way and went to see her - it was AMAZING! I cried because I was so excited!

My first concert was Fall Out Boy in my freshman year of high school with three friends. It was so fun. We got to leave school early to drive two hours to the concert and we didn't even get home til three in the morning. It was just so much fun and I will remember it forever. =]

My first concert was Paramore. I'm in love with the band. My parents gave me 3 tickets and I took my closest friends. It was so much fun. We sang along with the band and my voice was practically gone by the end of the night. It will probably the best concert I've ever gone to.

I've only been to one concert before. It was a local one, but pretty fun!!! We all danced and sang along to the bands before us. Since it was only about 50 people we had food and drinks. YUM. They played a rendition of Crazy Love, one of my favorite songs!!!

My most memorable concert was probably when I was 16 or 17 - finally able to drive my friend and I to a concert by ourselves. We saw a bunch of Christian rock bands and that's where we first heard Reliant K. They were just up and coming, so they were there after the show and talked to people and signed t-shirt and albums. It was a lot of fun.

My most memorable concert experience was one of the first ones I went to. It was 4 huge bands and they were all favorites of mine. I went with a couple of my friends and it was just so amazing. I've been to others since then but I still think that one will always be my favorite for some reason.

I've never been to a "real" concert! I know! So that'll have to wait.
