Sweet Summertime

Okay, not quite summertime yet. And this sun in Cleveland is such a tease. I walk out my door thinking I’d be getting at least 50 degree weather…instead, we’re still in the 40’s. But nonetheless, I can feel summer coming.

And along with summer comes my ridiculous spending habit on summer concerts. I have the longest list started for summer concerts I want to attend. My first concert of the season is going to be Sugarland in less than 2 weeks (so I guess it’s a spring concert) at Blossom. I cannot wait.

Sugarland, Matt Nathanson, Blossom, Beer and Cowboys…what could be better?

Also on the list this year (note: not all are confirmed as I would go broke but I do need help prioritizing): Kenny Chesney, New Kids on the Block and BSB (no I’m not even kidding you), Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Josh Groban (again, not kidding), Katy Perry and Journey. As you can tell from this list: I’m a country girl through and through.

Now the concert I’d love to attend: Britney. But seriously Brit-Brit: $100 for upper level tickets? And $300 for decent seats at the Q? I just can’t think of spending that much on tickets for a concert. And current Brit-Brit is not nearly the same as old school Britney.

My all-time favorite concerts have been a mix of music to be honest with you. One of my favorites was the Kenny Chesney concert at my home away from home (Browns
Stadium). First of all, this became an all-day event. Not to mention it was not just Kenny. It was also: Sugarland, Sara Evans and Brooks & Dunn.I was in country heaven.

I mean look at him: he screams summer, beer and music.

Second favorite concert: Justin Timberlake. Now, this was unique as it was in winter but it was well worth me literally freezing my butt off. Because yes, they did have us wait outside to get in. And yes, I paid the extra money to have floor seats. And yes, I didn’t want to wear a coat because where would I put it. But Justin….completely and totally worth it.

Collectively ladies…Ahh…

I’m hopeful that this summer will have concerts that far exceed my favorites in the past. Be looking for Sugarland pictures from Blossom in the very near future (especially if we end up getting the pit seats which I would DIE for).

I wish Jennifer Nettles was my best friend.

So, what do you think? What are the MUST attends of this concert season?

    Sooo, in all my glory of recent frequent memory lapses… I have not one, but TWO AWESOME concerts booked for one weekend! Yikes! On a Friday night in July I have a seester date to see my future husband and father of my one-day beautiful children, the one and only, John Legend!! And I also have tickets to go up to Chicago to see DMB Caravan that same weekend! However, being a not-so-huge fan of Dave (gasp!), I would not be entirely sad to see my ticket resell last minute at twice the original cost…
    Also, going to see Brett Dennen in June at Vogue in Broadripple – he’s an upandcoming folk artist my boyfriend just introduced me to, and we’re excited to check it out.
    Obviously my list is much too short and hopefully it will grow as the weather warms up 🙂 Love summer concerts so much!!
