Funny you should ask. I was just telling somebody this story.....
When I was in 8th grade, Vanilla Ice was on tour and came to VT (at the time, there really weren't a lot of big acts that came to VT). I got excited and asked my parents if I could go because ALLLLL my friends were going
. I remember my dad looking at me and saying "Look, someday somebody is going to ask you what your first concert was and you are NOT going to want to say 'Vanilla Ice'. Trust me."
So instead, in 9th grade, my parents took me to see Paul Simon in '91 on the "Born at the Right Time" tour. It was 2 weeks after the big Central Park Show.
I'd actually seen other people at random festivals, etc, but Paul Simon was my first, real, full-on concert.
I hope last night doesn't wake up this morning
and tell tomorrow what I've done....
