Bucket List: Concerts
I have created a list of all the shows, concerts and festivals I have been to since living in the UK – including shows of comedians and magicians I have seen.
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love live music. Hence why I decided to share with you lovely readers the artists who I have already seen and artists/singers/shows I would love to see in the future.
I don’t have a particular ‘genre’ of music which I prefer, because it all comes down to my mood. My taste can be very extreme, I could be listening to Indie artist one day, then rock band the next, to classical and slow dub step during the evenings.
But what I do know, is that there is just something about live music. The best feeling is when the music hits you. It encapsulated everything you are feeling – whether it’s happiness, sadness or anger. It brings to life any emotion you cannot put into words and you feel as though your soul has been touched. I’m sure those who have been to a live concert can relate to this feeling, when I say it’s almost indescribable how music changed your mood when you listen to a band or artists live.
