Concert Bucket List


I have been super psyched up for the past handful of months over a show we are going to this Summer, Arcade Fire. I am a huge fan to say the least.  As I have been squealing like a teenage girl since we got the tickets, seriously, this got me thinking about my concert bucket list, and how I have seen some great shows and WANT to see some great artists before I get too old (which isn’t a thing right?!). 

When I talked over this list with my husband last week, you know to get him up to speed on who I want to see. next..ahem…   he was surprised at some of the artists I wanted to see or have I thought to share them.  Some of the artists on my list are there because they are just legends of music and, well, I want to see them! 

So here it is…

In no particular order and right off the top of my head. I will keep adding/crossing off as I think of artists!  Seen shows are crossed off at the end.
