I've been to a lot of sweet concerts: Prince, R.E.M, Janet Jackson and 50 Cent just to name a few. However, the one that I'd have to say was the hands-down, absolute BEST was the Up In Smoke concert I saw in Columbus, OH with my pal, Drew senior year of high school. I was there mainly for Eminem, but the headliners were amazing. Seeing Snoop and Dre onstage together doing their rap thang as they drank Hen from a plastic cup and blazed a joint is one memory I will never forget. It was off the HINGES, as the young folks say these days.
I saw Eminem in concert a few more times after that, but nothing will compare to that first one. He wasn't a superstar yet, so he still had that fight in his voice--the fight to prove who he was and that he could hang with the big dawgs. I loved every second. I'm pretty sure Drew and I were the only people in the audience who weren't hopped up on booze, weed or pain killers, but we didn't care (much). Omg, you should have seen me dancing with my two middle fingers up in the air--waving them like I just didn't care (Em instructed us to do that, so I obliged). I'm laughing right now just thinking about it. Fuuun times!
Switching gears, my very FIRST concert was New Kids On The Block. We were in St. Louis I believe for one of Foster's soccer tournaments, and we went as a family. You should have seen us. Liza and I wore ripped jean shorts with polka dot leggings underneath; my dad was shouting at people to SIT DOWN and Foster had his head in between his legs the entire time. (Don't think I didn't see you peeking when Danny and Donnie started breakdancing, Fos!)
So tell me, what's the best concert you've been to and WHY? And What was your first concert memory?
