Last night, my sisters and I saw Thomas Rhett in concert.
I had to count, and maybe I’ve missed a few, but I have been to around 20 concerts. It’s kind of my thing I like to do.
Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus- I remember crying and screaming I was so excited to get tickets to my first big show in 5th grade. I got Hannah Montana AND Miley Cyrus. What a treat!
Sugarland- me and one of my besties wanted to see them SO bad and we heard about the concert on the radio. Got tickets the next day! This was sometime in middle school.
Taylor Swift- went with a big group of friends freshman year. We saw Taylor on the “Speak Now” tour, which is my favorite album. I wanted to see Taylor on the “reputation” tour so badly, but I accidentally gave up my tickets in my cart. Maybe I’ll see her for “Lover”.
Maroon 5- this was a special concert because I went with my mom. She even bartered our way up about 2 sections to get better seats!
Justin Bieber round 1- I couldn’t believe it was happening. I cried driving into Orlando and seeing him fly into the stadium on wings.
Justin Bieber round 2- same tour, but I got asked to take my sisters friend a few days before. Show was just as good, but I had even better seats!
Florida Georgia Line/ Jason Aldean- country concerts are always the most fun!! This was senior year of high school before I went to UF, and the concert was at the O’Dome.
Lecrae- Christian rap concerts are also reallllly fun!
Sam Hunt round 1- this was my first concert with my fiancé when we were in high school. Hunt came to the county fair before he was huge, so we had floor seats for only $15!
Jason Derulo- Austin and I saw him in college at universal. It was free with our season tickets, so why not?
Dan & Shay- one of the best concerts I’ve been too, given we were on the floor 2 rows up & I caught a guitar pick. Unfortunately I lost it before I even left the show.
Arcadian Wild- a folk band that did a concert in someone’s home. So cool and personal. We didn’t know what to expect, but we loved it and went back for a second concert.
Justin Bieber round 3- I bought tickets for this concert the day of when a friend came to visit me. They were $60 for the first row of the lower section. The best show of the three times I saw him!
Imagine Dragons- Austin and I went to this concert. He usually doesn’t like concerts, but since he wanted to go to this one, I jumped right on it.
Hunter Hayes- a student concert I saw at UF for free. Honestly not too memorable, but I waited in line for tickets verrrrrry early for a verrrrrry long time.
Sam Hunt round 2- a TPC concert I saw outside on the green. Crowded and pretty short, but still a good show.
Snoop Dog- only went because me and my roommates wanted to for UF homecoming. Honestly was fun, but definitely an interesting experience.
In Real Life/Lauv- Fourth of July concert we saw at the Jacksonville Landing (before the unfortunate shooting). My sisters love the band, so we went, and as an added bonus, Lauv was there! We met the boys in IRL; this was also a small show.
Ed Sheeran- my sister and I went to see this show at the Buccaneers stadium in Tampa. We got to the stadium into our seats just as Ed was getting on stage to perform. This was due to heavy traffic, and me having my job interview in Gainesville (but at least I got to celebrate getting a job that night!)
Steve Aioki- I saw him at Summerfest in Milwaukee with my coworkers on a work trip. I had never been to an EDM concert before, and this was really fun experience.
Jonas Brothers- landing these tickets was tough because i didn’t think I was going to get to go. I wasn’t going to make it to the show I originally had tickets to, but last minute was able to make it to a different show. I screamed so loud and much that my throat was sore for a week after. This was also the night after I graduated college!
Thomas Rhett- I got to go to this with my two younger sisters, one of which had never been to a big concert before. The openers were almost just as entertaining as Rhett, and he played a good mix of songs from all of his albums.
Waiting for- Lauren Diagle, hopefully Post Malone, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift again.
