    I just bought Lady Gaga tickets for November!!! I'm super siked!!! We got the cheapest tickets available for $60 each!:eek:hmy: We'll be a full soccer field away from the stage but I just couldn't bring myself to pay almost $200 each for the next best tickets. So I'll borrow someone's binoculars for the day and hope for nice big screens:lol:

    The last concert I went to was ... geeze it's been so long... I think it was My Morning Jacket.

    What was the last concert you went to??:cool:

    It's been awhile for me-I used to go all the time. The last one was James Blunt. We had awesome seats and it was an intimate little theater.

    Hmmm, not sure...but Gaga's would be THE last one I would attend! :)

    The last was either Bublé or DMB.

    Rufus Wainwright a few weeks ago.

    Before that, Gaga's Monster Ball Tour in March of last year. I can't wait for the Born This Way tour to come to the US next year.

    :lol: Man the thing is though, even if you hate her music, you know that woman's gonna put on a show! It'd be like going to see Prince or someone equally outrageous. :cool:

    KEITH URBAN opener Jake Owen!!!! LOVE HIS CONCERTS... HE WAS ABOUT 5 FT FROM ME IN THE CROWD!!! If you ever have the chance to see him it is workth the money. We went with our friends who didn't know a lot about his music afterwards they told us he would be one they would travel to go see in concert again... They said he is just an AWESOME performer... he can sing, he can REALLY play the guitar and he just entertains you!!!

    Oh Diznee,

    We saw Tim BEFORE he was famous, about 18 years ago he performed at a street fair. I still remember DD, about 2 yrs. old bouncing up & down to Down on the Farm!

    DH & DS just got home from work. Guess I'm picking up DS from work tomorrow & we'll go to the concert. DH & DD will go down earlier.

    Believe it or not, I've never been to a concert. I don't like any one person that much...except maybe I'd see Celine Dion. I last went to a Cirque du Soleil show.

    Took my daughter to see Scott McCreery, The Band Perry, and Brad Paisley in May. They were great. We saw Lady A 2 years ago in Indianapolis. They were awesome too.

    Well, Darius Rucker performed before the Coca Cola 600 and I was there.
    I would MUCH rather go to a sporting even than a concert. I have been to exactly two concerts in my life.
    Sort of embarrassing.....
    The last one was Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera (Justified/Stripped tour). I took my sister- she begged me because she like JT. I loved Christina's album, so I agreed.
    My first concert was for my sister's 10th birthday. Tickets were $10. My mom took a bunch of her friends and of course I was dragged along. They didn't even fill up the little arena in my home town. To put it in perspective, my high school graduation filled the arena. Anyway, it was 'NSYNC :blush:

    I saw Van Halen with Kool and the Gang in July. It was good! David Lee Roth spoke more than he sang, but Eddie is still awesome. Kool was incredible!

    I have tickets to Def Leppard for Sept 1. Lita Ford and Poison will open for them. I've seen them at every Houston concert since '89. They always put on a fantastic show!

    I think it was Def Leppard. I used to go to concerts all the time, and then I married a musician. From that point on, I'd usually go see him perform, but that was about it. He really didn't like concerts for the most part. I got him to go see Def Leppard with me because I had gone with him to see Keith Urban. I really dislike country music.

    I saw Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan last weekend, it was a great show!! Before that I saw Chris Young and Lee Brice- they played at a bar where I used to live and tickets are like $5 and both concerts I stood right in front of the stage. I will miss those shows!

    Last major concert-I took my 8 year old niece to see Taylor Swift and David Nail in October. That was a good show too, we had meet and greets to David Nail he was awesome.

    I try to see Chicago each summer but I've missed 2 summers in a row now. They've been around a long time so I suppose they'll still be touring next summer. Wish I lived in Vegas since they seem to stop there often.

    I just remembered, My Morning Jacket was not my most recent concert. I went to a Calle 13 concert a few months back. The sound was awful so it wasn't too enjoyable.

    Nickelback. That was part of the girls' weekend I was asking so much fashion advice about, lol. My sister and I saw them a few years ago at the same venue, and the sound was awesome. Not so great this time, though. Jon Bon Jovi needs to get his old a$$ back in the studio - their shows are awesome. My sister and I bought tickets a few years ago, then I got pregnant and wound up backing out. My sister just couldn't understand why I didn't want to drive four hours while seven months pregnant with minor complications throughout. :rolleyes:

    I saw Brad Paisley a couple of weeks ago, with The Band Perry (who I actually can't stand) and Easton Corbin.
    The show was great, but we had lawn seats and realized pretty quickly that we were probably the only people above 25 and sober :-/

    Last summer I saw Rascal Flatts. They were good, but I decided I'm too old for outdoor ampitheater concerts. Way too loud.

    I went to see Natalie Merchant by myself and it was an amazing experience. I decided not to drag anyone along with me because concert tics are too expensive to make someone go who isn't that into the person. So I got great seats last minute since I only needed one tic. It was a small, intimate show and she is phenomenal.

    And actually I took my sister to see Ke$ha and I think that was since then, so technically it would be the last one I went to, but not necessarily my choice. It was a "toned down" concert (she is notorious for doing some crazy stuff but the fair asked her to do a more family friendly show). We had a blast, though. We were right in front of a "glitter gun" so we had confetti all over us, including IN our clothes, we realized when we got home. lol.
