My first concert!
Kayla gets to see Dad and Sydney go to shows all the time. “When is my first concert?”, she would ask! I knew taking her to a metal show wouldn’t exactly be a great night. The kid is going to get tired half way through. So I had been on the lookout for a show that would be more to her tastes. So when Meghan was coming to town, I knew that would be a good choice. All the kids like her and know the songs. Win!
Check out the hair. She was ready to party!
We arrived to a record long line. I think everybody shows up on time for these pop shows versus my shows where you stroll in late to be cool. Line wrapped around the block and back on itself. We made due.
We moved around during the entire night. From the balcony, to the floor, to the front, to the back. Just giving the kids different spaces. Up front was good but it is hard on little people. The whole place is standing only so they can’t see crap unless you hold them up. Which Kim and I did! We traded between Reagan and Kayla the whole time. Exhausting.
The show was good. Live band. Decent crowd. I liked it. I even knew a few songs by osmosis so I wasn’t lost the whole time. I enjoy the concert atmosphere and production so as long as your music doesn’t suck, I can enjoy myself. However, Kayla was about done come the encore. She was ready to go. It is a long time for a 5 year old without a seat. But she had a great time and I am glad we all got to see a show as a family.
A little “All About The Bass” from the balcony…
