It’s with a slight sting that I tell you how my concert experiences have been on the decline over the last couple of years.
A combination of getting older and not having the luxury anymore to jet off to a new concert venue at a moments notice have led to this, but I’m not complaining as it has been a good ten-year run, and I’ve seen some amazing shows and bands.
These days though I find joy in something a little more low-key and relaxing, like the symphony.
The Phoenix symphony here in Arizona likes to combine the beauty of rock and roll music with the classic stylings of symphony instruments, which results in hearing great music in a whole new way.
Case in point would be the Pink Floyd laser show I went to at the Mesa Amphitheatre a couple of weekends ago.
They played the Dark Side of the Moon album in its entirety, then threw in a few other classic songs, including one of my personal favorites, “Wish you were here“.
Apropos of nothing, but I do wish you were….
