Last night was amazing! I was able to experience the rush of a live concert again thanks to the local radio station – I won tickets to the show. It was a chance to observe, who I consider a classic rock band, Kansas, do some amazing things musically on stage. I am not a concert reviewer. I am a concert fan, maybe even a concert addict. In my youth I saw a lot of different live shows, from bar bands to stadium concerts. There is just such a rush I get from FEELING the music pound through me that no radio or Ipod can EVER match. The enthusiasm of the crowd fuels the band’s energy. That was one thing about last night that was great… it was a small crowd but the noise level made up for it!
I have to say this old lady felt mesmerized by the show and was able to rekindle some of my youthful energy. Definitely goes into the great concert category for me. They were just talking on the radio the other day about the fact that older bands still give the crowds 110% of what they’ve got in a live show, and new artists tend to just show up. Can’t really attest to the new artist side of the discussion, but man Kansas sure still rocks hard after more than 40 years of music!
