… concert going?
Facebook is great at preserving memories. I got reminded of a concert this morning from November 20, 2010, that my wife and I attended at Caesars Windsor.
Live concerts have always been a thing for a night out for us. Many were attended in high school – I was actually dance co-ordinator one year, at university, at the Aud in Kitchener, at CNE Stadium, at Casino Rama, and most recently Caesars Windsor opened a terrific concert space, The Colosseum, and we’ve seen so many there.
Above are pictures taken during a Montgomery Gentry concert. In the beginning, we were able to get tickets very close to the stage. That became more and more difficult and these were well back! The audio was still great though, as you would expect from a modern concert hall.
Of course, we know that recently concert venues have been closed due to COVID concerns. One of the frustrating things about living close to the Canada/United States border is seeing how much quicker things are opening over there – the Rolling Stones played this past week at Ford Field.
Things are looking promising for concertgoers on this side of the border. Alice Cooper is playing at the Colosseum in the new year.
That’s our topic for this Sunday. Not Alice Cooper, but the concept of concert-going.
So, what are your thoughts?
- Are you a concertgoer?
- What was the first concert you attended?
- What was the best concert you attended?
- If your local entertainment place opened with a concert now, would you go? If not now, when?
- Concert venues are big expensive places. Who has been paying the bills during the lockdown?
- Have you watched a concert live on streaming media during the lockdown? Is it the same?
I’d be interested in your thoughts? Please share them in the comments below.
