If you’ve been following the band, you’d probably tell by the title of the post what this is all about. I know this is four months late, but going to Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams Tour in Pasadena last year was a dream come true for both Roan and myself! We didn’t have the best seats in the house (because expensive), but we (mostly I do) really enjoy going to live concerts, especially if I’m seeing one of my favorite artists!
Do you know Jan of Jan Loves? I wouldn’t say that we had a “blogger meet-up” because, in case you didn’t know, her husband Ron and I have known each other since college. Apparently, Roan is good friends with him, too, since they were in the same circle of friends back then. Roan’s and my world are so small that we have a lot of common friends from way back when. Anyway, Jan and Ron (WARNING: You may find our names confusing!) live just east of LA, so we sort of required them to free their calendar up on the day of the CHVRCHES concert. Luckily, they just got back from their trip to Seattle, so they saved the date for a mini reunion.
Not so long ago, I wrote a list of music artists I wish to see play on stage. In less than a year, I’ve already crossed out two of them, with Paramore as my first concert experience here in the US. Shortly after watching Imagine Dragons live in San Diego for their Smoke + Mirrors world tour, I discovered that CHVRCHES were having theirs alongside the release of their new album, Every Open Eye. I literally “camped out” in front of the computer to snag tickets as soon as they went on sale.
