A Beatles Concert!
So today's writing prompt for the Autumn Blog Challenge was to write about a favorite play or concert you have attended. I have to admit, I have never been to an actual concert. I don't think plays I watched in school count, so no on that one too. I remember badly wanting to go see Marilyn Manson and Korn when they were on tour together back when I was in high school but I wasn't allowed to go, so that was that. I don't even listen to that kind of music anymore so that was just really awkward typing that previous sentence (ha ha!). I had my daughter towards the end of high school so I haven't really made time to go to any concerts since having kids. There have been some good concerts locally I have wanted to attend, but just never made the time. Noting this - I need to experience my first concert lol!
Last year however three of my daughters participated in a school concert dedicated to The Beatles. I loved listening to all the old Beatles' hit songs sung by all the children and they even had super cute props like big cardboard yellow submarines. It took me right back down memory lane to when I was in band during my middle school years and we had this wonderful hippy teacher that introduced me to The Beatles, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, and more! I still remember him taking us down random streets during class time to do impromptu marching band style performances to songs like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. Good times!
