So I know I said last year was pretty…average. But really it wasn’t because oh my god I had the best concert year ever!!! You know how I realised this? I heard Lady Gaga was having her tour in August but didn’t actually think I would go (even though I stan for her) because no one I know loves her as much as me! And the only tour I am seriously needing to go to is One Direction, because this album is amazing. Anyway, so my friend is going and I wish I was going too!! But in reality, I’m saving for something bigger this year, to travel! And this is hard because I’m really crap at saving money due to makeup, clothes, shoes, going out, and food. So I wouldn’t really be able (well I could) buy a ticket anyway… But when I think of last year, the concerts that I went to, those are experiences in themselves! Ones that are new and amazing!!! As a fangirl, it’s utterly and amazingly euphoric being in the same air space as the ones you love. I had thought, there was nothing new I experienced last year. Uni was like going through high school again except the subjects I was doing were shit and I hated them. But every concert and festival I went to, was a whole new thing in a whole new category of ‘feels’. Each musician and artist is an experience in themselves, so even though it’s categorised in ‘music’ and ‘concerts’ each is unique and incredible! And this was the year I went to my first concert ever as well!!
My 2013 music experiences!!! (New to me and exciting and the best ever!!!)
1. Ed Sheeran
2. Future Music Festival
3. One Direction
4. Justin Bieber
5. Taylor Swift
6. The 1975 (Okay, this was 2014 but it counts because it’s the holidays of 2013, prior uni)
ALL SO AMAZING!!!! I’m pretty sure I already had a whole feels post about Ed Sheeran (on my old blogspot), it was my first ever concert!!! I danced the whole night at my seat, he was epic and pitch perfect and original and all he needed was him, his guitar and his loop pedal. Future was so fun, my first and only festival, where I got to relive live my favourite Avicii song “I Could Be The One” from my 18th birthday when Nicky Romero played it for the first time to my ears. Not to mention One Direction, after missing out on the Up All Night tour (oh how I was fucking devastated!!!) it was amazing and I filmed the whole thing, but all you can hear is mostly me singing horribly out of tune… Justin is perfect, the concert was amazing, his dance moves, his voice, his sexuality, just everywhere…!!! And T-Swifty was a spur of the moment thing, but oh my god was it worth it and epic. It was the first open air concert I’d been too and it was just a whole other vibe, other worldly, the pyro, the fireworks, just the immense stage show of it all was breathe-taking, and Taylor is just perfection, her voice, I cried when she sand “All Too Well” it was to die for. And yes, The 1975, my love blossomed for them when I saw a post about them on Tumblr relating to Harry Styles, so cute! They were great, and I have to say, even better live than on record!!! Matty is full of energy and his dancing and head shaking is contagious! It was my first gig type of concert, really small and intimate, he was right there in front of us and I know he could see everyone.
Anyway, yeah so 2013 wasn’t such a mundane year after all! And I only mean this in terms of me in my life and moving forward and doing something with purpose. Concerts are purposeful. They heal the soul.
Lots of love,
Just Another Woo Girl
