Who Likes Concerts?

* I apologize.  This is a long one...*
Me at the Spice Girls' Reunion Tour

I will admit it: I'm a concert junkie. If there's an artist I like that will be coming to town (or close to town) I will try my best to be there.  I've travelled some distances (to Buffalo to see Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj) and have been to some places I don't plan on going to again.  I've seen my idols, I've seen legends, and I have seen those that really should get a new job.  But I must say, there's nothing quite like seeing an artist perform their music live.

On Sunday, I will be going to Drake's (second annual) OVO Fest.  I went last year, although up until a few days before, I wasn't sure I wanted to go.  Then I started to hear the rumours of guest appearances.  I am so glad I went.  None other than Jay Z and Eminem showed up.  I was completely blown away, and now completely devoted to OVO Fest.  I can't wait to see who will come this year.  I have my guesses (Kid CuDi) and I'm pretty sure no matter who comes, I'll have a blast.

It will also be my last concert before I leave.  I'm hoping to see a concert or two when I'm abroad.  I'm really hoping to go to a music festival, but I'll settle for a concert.

So in the spirit of live music, I've decided to post some pictures (some good, some blurry) of a few concerts I've been to in the last few years.  Enjoy!
