Re: If You Could See Any Musical Performer or Group, Living or Dead, Who Would It Be?

I was fortunate to grow up in a large city with older siblings that took me to most concerts.  I have seen many performers.  I grew up in the Motown Era and still can't get enough of Motown.  Truthfully, with children, I have learned to enjoy any type of music. 

 

I can make a great suggestion to some that live close to coliseums.  If you can work part time, most coliseums hire part time help to seat people for all events.  I am able to work my full time job and also work part time at a coliseum.  FREE FREE FREE concerts.   Sure you do not see the entire show, but you do see enough to be satisfied and get paid to hear the music to "boot".   They will jump at the opportunity to hire dependable people.  Just a thought for some that are able.  Get paid to attend concerts is a great gig. Smiley Very Happy

I really don't see that many awards shows, but I remember seeing that.  It was absolutely amazing!

 

I don't know why she really didn't hit my radar for a long time.  I guess it's probably just that I mostly just listen to older stuff (older rock and classical, some opera).  

 

I recently saw her as an actor in something and was so impressed.   I'll be darned if I can remember what it was, though.  D'oh!

I would squeal like a little 13 year old girl if I could see the four Beatles in their prime.    Love the Stones - I have seen them many times and I hope to see them again.

Re: If You Could See Any Musical Performer or Group, Living or Dead, Who Would It Be?

i would have loved to see:

 

The Smiths / Morrissey

 

The Cure

 

Pink Floyd

 

Journey

 

Eagles (when they were new back in the 70s - Don Henley and Glenn Frey backed Linda Ronstadt and then decided to form their own band)

 

The Doors ( their music is so timeless - they just facinate me - funny that they had no bass player - Ray Manzarek played the bass keys on keyboard)

 

Allman Bros. Band

 

Patsy Cline - that voice!  she is unparallelld (jmo)

Andrea Bocceli, Nat King and Natalie Cole, Louis Armstrong. I saw YoYo Ma a few years ago, and it was just breathtaking. At the end of the concert, he played Bach's Cello Suite No 1, dedicated to a couple who had just had a baby, and the crowd went absolutely wild. It was so sweet. You can just tell he is a nice man.

I've always wanted to see the Grateful Dead, and apparently have missed my chance Smiley Sad
