Ultimate Concert Trip List

imageMy husband and I have decided, after an extended family RTW trip, to venture out on shorter trips that incorporate our love of travel with our love of live music. Over the course of many years together we have had the opportunity to see hundreds of concerts. Sometimes we see legends that are still on the road. Other times we have had the good fortune of catching new talent as they are just emerging. Recently we have had the opportunity to see such acts as My Morning Jacket,the Avett Brothers, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Old Crow Medicine Show, Steve Earle, Foo Fighters, Alabama Shakes and Mumford and Sons. These talented bands could play anywhere and be great. However, sometimes the venue adds to the experience – like when we saw Springsteen (solo and acoustic) at the Louisville Palace or Mumford and Sons with Old Crow and Jerry Douglas at the Ryman Auditorium. Just as we built an itinerary for our year abroad by discussing the places we dreamed of going, we’ve begun to plan this undertaking with a conversation about our wildest fantasy concerts and venues. In a manner of minutes, while driving on the interstate, we created the following short list of musicians/bands we would love to see and the venue we would prefer to see them in…

Prince at the Apollo

Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Hollywood Bowl

U2 at Red Rocks

MMJ at the Louisville Palace

Neil Young at The Bridge School Benefit

REM at 40 Watt Club

Bruce Springsteen in Italy

Comment and tell us who you would love to see and where you would most like to see them. Make a list, share it here, and hit the road. We are!
