The News Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys (aka NKOTBSB) are coming to Atlanta tomorrow, and I am wondering what moms are heading to see them and if they will be bringing their daughters?
My sister-in-law saw the NKOTB in recent years and took my niece with her. They loved it.
Since my brother got his new heart two years ago they have been able to do a little more and seeing favorite old groups is high on their list. They saw Def Leppard last weekend without their kids but are planning to take the kids to see Huey Lewis and the News. (I think that’s a really great one to see with kids. There is nothing bad going on there.)
They were talking about going to Journey and I was so jealous! I would love to see Journey.
You’re never quite sure how kids will react in concerts. It might be too much stimulation. Too loud or too many people. I would think the outdoor shows would be easier on kids – less loud and less intense.
The first concert I ever went to was Earth Wind and Fire. My grandfather was the accountant for Turtle Records on Memorial Drive and he was given the tickets. Clearly my 50-year-old grandfather wasn’t going so he gave them to us.
The whole scene scared the heck the out of me. I was probably only 6 and it was so loud. They would turn off all the lights in the whole arena (I guess it would have been the Omni back then) for certain parts and that was scary too. I asked to leave after like two songs.
So what old bands or current bands do you want to see? Which shows would you want to share with your kids? Do you think old bands are more appropriate and less risque than newer acts?
