Here is the BEST concerts I have ever been to:

John Mayer #1 HANDSDOWN – he had the best show ever. His guitar skills just blow the crowd away. Some people say he’s a douche – or whatever I don’t give a rip – I usually ask if they have been to his concert – they say no, and I say, “Dare you to buy a ticket and then come tell me he sucks” because he is AWESOME!!!

U2: another amazing show and band! Sound quality out of this world. Great interaction and acknowlegment of the crowd. We went to it in Minneapolis TCF Bank new stadium – it started to rain half way through and they kept playing! In fact the show really started then… I got a bit cold, but some girl next to me *who I didn’t even know* borrowed me her dry sweatshirt out of her bag, she was so nice. I should have asked her to be my friend – ah well, if you ever see this post – you know who you are and I am very thankful to you! Innocent

Adele: Her voice -ahhhh…. spectacular and chilling all at the same damn time. You don’t know if you are going to laugh, scream, or cry it is so beautiful. She sounds better live than on CD (HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE!!!) No joke. She is amazing! So happy I got to see her – and in 12th row CENTER, she just sits on her stool and belts out note after amazing note – she hits every single one too – not a miss. Love Adele!

@angelinthesnowxo:  Ah Pearl Jam, would love to have seen them back in their hay day but I was way too little – I live thru the shows on old Youtube videos – when Eddie was young – man was he somethin’ HOT!

Last post: Has anyone ever seen the original Alice In Chains with Layne Staley? If so, you are so lucky and I envy you. He was such an amazing musician. Too bad he died so young – and he was so sad the last year of his life *according to reports from his closest friends* – just tragic.
