2013 has by far been the best year for tours and concerts. Every show I went to this year was absolutely AMAZING! So many memories were made and I would like to share some from the 8 shows I went to this year!
First concert I went to in January of 2013 was Lady Gaga. I was lucky enough to see her before she called off the rest of her tour because of her hip injury. I was pretty proud of my outfit too... It was an ode to my favorite song of hers, Just Dance. In that video she wears a disco ball bra (Yes I made one for myself) and a captain hat. Isn't it funny how you can walk around in fishnets and a disco ball bra and still not be the weirdest dressed person in the room?
Next was Maroon 5 in March. My mom really wanted to go, so I surprised her with tickets! (my mom loves going to concerts with me, shes not just a regular mom, shes a cool mom) I was so excited because one of my favorite bands, Neon Trees, opened up for them! It was a very good concert, especially because I got to swoon over Adam Levine the whole time ;)
Next up was Fall Out Boy in June. They played at a smaller venue in Oakland California so it was AMAZING! I was so close to them! Plus I went with my best friend, so it was quite a great night!
In July was the best concert I've been to probably in my whole life...Justin Timberlake and Jay Z! I've seen 60+ shows and I can honestly say that this was the best show I've ever seen. Justin Timberlake is such a great performer, and Jay Z was just so amazing. I came to the show not a huge Jay Z fan, but left the concert as a new one. He raps so perfectly, never out of breath. Even though I was sitting in the nose bleeds, it was one of my best nights of 2013! ...And of course I had to wear a bow tie!
Then was The Backstreet Boys and Jesse McCartney in September. My inner 12 year old self was fan-girling the whole time! The Backstreet boys still have it! They sounded amazing, danced really well, and I think they kick some Nsync butt (well minus Justin Timeberlake)...such a good show, and I totally fell in love with Jesse McCartney! He's SUCH a cutie! (Sorry guys, no pic for this one, I was having too much fin to take a good pic).
In September I almost died of a favorite bands overdose when I saw Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco TOGETHER! You don't understand, I've been waiting for this to happen since I was in high school! Great show, favorite bands. Enough said.
In November I saw Michael Buble. His voice is unbelievable. At one point he didn't have the mic up to his face and you could still hear his voice. It's that powerful. Plus I saw him right after Thanksgiving and he sang a Christmas song. I'm happily crossing off "See Michael Buble Sing A Xmas Song Live" off my bucket list!
The last concert I went to in 2013 was Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and it was a great last concert of 2013. Macklemore has SO much energy and is all over the stage. He seemed so greatful to be up on stage doing what he loves and so greatful for all the fans. If you love the song Thrift Shop as much as I do, you need to see them perform it live! So good! I would LOVE to see Macklemore and Ryan Lewis again!
And there you have it! All the shows I went to in 2013! for 2014 I already have lined up P!ATD, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake...so I'm quite excited!
What was your favorite show you went to in 2013?
