“Let’s get this thing started. It’s my kinda party.” – My Kinda Party by Jason Aldean. Attending a concert in the year 2021 seems like it would never come due to COVID-19. Now that there is a vaccine that can help reduce the likelihood of getting sick, concerts have been more common. While attending these concerts, there were many precautions that everyone had to follow. Vaccinated people had to show proof with their vaccine cards, while unvaccinated people had to show proof of a negative test to attend the concerts. My friends and I had a great time at the Thomas Rhett and Jason Aldean concerts that we attended a few weeks ago!
These concerts took place at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Missouri. Thomas Rhett and Jason Aldean are both very popular country music singers. I personally love and enjoy listening to both. Attending these concerts was such a stress reliever. My friends and I got there super early so we could listen to the opening acts such as Cole Swindell, Gabby Barret, Hardy, and Lainey Wilson. All of these artists had amazing songs that some of you might even know.
We purchased lawn seats which we personally love. You have plenty of room to dance and move around, and they are much cheaper. We brought blankets to sit on if we got tired, which we didn’t since we were having such a good time. We stopped by the food stands and got us some snacks. There were lots of food and drink options at these concerts. I bought a yummy blue raspberry snow cone and a huge pretzel. We danced and sang our hearts out. “Soak it all up, let it sink in, crank it up loud all the way to ten.” – Like It’s The Last Time by Thomas Rhett. The concert was so much fun that we didn’t want it to end! All of us enjoyed our time listening to the live music together.
It was such a good feeling to get back into listening to music artists perform live again. It has been so long since we all got together and went to a concert. Spending time with family and friends, and listening to good music really puts you in a great mood. If any of you reading this are thinking about attending a concert soon, I definitely recommend it! Purchase those tickets, tell your friends, and have a great time! Make sure to take plenty of precautions to keep yourself safe when doing so. Oh, and don’t forget to take lots of pictures and videos. Making memories is so important. Having those memories documented makes it even more special!
