I don’t think any of these bands were on my radar back in 2011, not really. But now, they are 3 of my most favorite bands. And all 3 toured together! Gaaaaa!
I was not really into listening to “favorite bands” in my later years. Sure, as a kid, The Beatles or The Monkees were spinning on my record player every night. (Yes, I am THAT old!). And in the 70’s when line dancing started, I was all in! I loved to dance! So I was at the clubs a lot, dancing to great music.
But once I started my career, who had time for music and dancing? I worked anywhere from 60-90 hours a week, depending on where we were in the accounting cycle. I didn’t have time to SLEEP, let alone worry about bands.
Then American Idol came along, and changed everything for me. I started to really enjoy music and singing again. More and more shows popped up, and I for one liked them all.
I was always a fan of Dancing With the Stars (DWTS). And lo and behold, a few years ago, a singer/songwriter/piano man named Gavin DeGraw appeared. I had NO idea who he was, so I googled him. Wow. He blew me away. Such talent, and what a voice! His dancing skills didn’t last too long on the show, but a new fan was born, in fact, thousands of them! His twitter account blew up, and his followers are now almost 400K. I started a special twitter account just to follow him on the show, and HE WAS MY FIRST FOLLOWER! So that’s MY claim to fame, lol.
I always loved Adam Levine, especially when The Voice started, and loved his performance on American Horror Story (hubba hubba!) Same with Pat from Train, love those dark haired men!
So I can’t believe that I was a day late and a dollar short of going to see all 3 of my fav bands in one place! Something like that will never happen again, because they are all their own headlining bands. All 3 bands have done very well over the past few years, and I love all their songs. Gavin DeGraw is still my fav (really? lol), but I love all their music.
Was anybody out there lucky enough to have seen one of those concerts?
