Imagine Dragons and a 9 year old memory!

Our son experienced his first major concert last weekend: Imagine Dragons. 

This was basically his 9th birthday present, and he danced the night away!

My wife often works concerts for the BSU Taco Bell Arena, and she arranged that he had the opportunity to meet the band! 

I could not go with him because of my recent seizure, and I am grateful that my wife could take him. I think that will be a wonderful memory for them.

My first real concert when I was 10 was the Carpenters on the College of Southern Idaho campus. My stepdad was the Baldwin Piano dealer, and he tuned the Carpenters piano. We had great seats!

Throughout my life, I have had the opportunity to attend so many great concerts:

Journey, the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Loverboy, Tina Turner, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick, Rod Stewart, Pat Benatar, Elton John, Bryan Adams, Joan Jett, Heart, Dolly Parton, John Mellancamp, the Cowsills (sorry….I had no choice and I was a kid), Cheap Trick, Aerosmith, Boyz 2 Men, Greenday, Cats on Broadway, Mamma Mia, etc!

Tina Turner was my favorite! She yelled "Are you ready for me Boise!" She was ready!

I wonder what our son will remember about his first concert!
