Over the summer, I was invited to a for KING & COUNTRY concert with some folks from church. I am not a hardcore fan, but do enjoy their music. I also thought it would be a great chance to get to know some people a little better. We met at church for dinner, then loaded all 12 of us in the van and headed down to the Target Center.
There wasn't any opening act, so they took the stage just after 7. This is the tour for their most recent album, "Burn the Ships." It was derived from the idea of explorers burning their ships when they arrived at a new land, so they had no choice but to stay, unable to return home. The stage was reminiscent of a ship and had sail shaped video screens. It was a great show.
Late last week, my work raffled off K102 Fan Jam tickets and I won. My mom is a huge country music fan, so I took her along.
It was at Myth Live, a smallish concert and event venue. Gabby Barrett was the only artist I knew since I had seen her season of American Idol. Most of the acts played more popular cover songs, so I was able to keep up a little.
I shared my four pack of tickets with one fo our estimators, Jordan, and he brought his friend. It was fun being in the less crowded VIP area on the upper level. We stayed for most of the show, but left a little early because we were getting tired. They use this concert as a fundraiser for St. Jude Medical, which provides free medical care for children. A great event for a great cause.
