When I think about the people I have seen in concert it blows my mind because for some reason it’s difficult for me to make the connection between what I listen to at 2 AM crying and hearing it at a concert by that same person.
Like, it never feels real. I saw Robert Plant when I was 13 or 14, then I saw Bob Dylan and then Coldplay.
I think the BD one was the most surreal just because I idiolized him to (probably) an unhealthy extent for 3 years or so. I mean, for good reasons, obviously, but he sounds so different and I could barely see him, but it was amazing anyway (duh). He is still one of my favorite artists of all time, his lyrics still slay me. As I grow older some songs hold even more meaning.
I saw Robert Plant with Alison Krauss and that was show was really well done. Their album was incredible and it was the first ~*major*~ concert I had ever been to.
I saw Coldplay last year with my sisters and I’ve been a fan of them since I was 10 or 11. A lot of songs are nostalgic for me and they’re so special to me. It was pretty incredible to be singing along with my sisters to songs we have been singing for years - at the actual concert.
I completely forgot I owned this and it’s my favorite live concert album ever and it got erased off my iPod ages ago so I thought it was gone forever, but NO, I found it!!!!
Bob Dylan // Moonshiner
Such a beautiful rendition of an old old traditional folk song.
Let me eat when I’m hungry,
Let me drink when I’m dry.
Dollars when I’m hard up.
Religion when I die.
The whole world’s a bottle,
And life’s but a dram.
When a bottle gets empty,
It sure ain’t worth a damn.
Bob Dylan & Joan Baez
