On November 16, 2004 I woke up and went to work. One of my co-workers asked me when I walked past her “Do you want to go to a Counting Crows concert tonight in NYC? The tickets are free my husband won them and I do not want to go.” I called your Dad and he was of course in, I am pretty sure your Dad would not turn down a concert ticket. In fact his blog (today he wrote about this concert too) is built completely by using his hundreds of concert tickets as reference points for memories and blog posts.
So that night we headed to the city for what we were surprised to say was on of the best concerts we ever went to. I have been to concerts with bands I love and there were many great ones in that collection but this one had the absolute lowest expectation and blew me out of the water.
Adam Duritz played his heart out and drank his heart out. Your Dad and I were amazed at how much he drank and still played a great concert. We were on the floor right in front of them while they played. It felt like it was a show just for me and your Dad.
They basically played the August and Everything Thereafter, their famous CD (will you even know what I am talking about when I refer to a CD). I cannot really explain how great it was but now when I hear a song by Counting Crows I think of that night. In fact when your Dad and I went on our honeymoon we brought that CD with us (and left it there).
Lesson to Learn
- You never know when you will have one of those night that you will remember for a long time.
- Do not pass up free concert tickets
- When you get older and we drive cross-country you will understand why at some point you will listen to that entire CD and we will explain to you what a CD is too.
What is the best concert you ever went to?
Here is the you tube video of the ENTIRE concert!! Viva la internet!
One day, randomly I decided to wander around NYC with no purpose. This is VERY much out of character for me. For some reason I really wanted to do it. I found myself walking south on 5th Avenue in the area where all the stores are and all of sudden I saw a commotion and someone said Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins were filming a movie right there and I had to get off the sidewalk.
I had walked onto a movie set! I went into the store and I headed to the second floor so I could watch them film the scene. I watched them film the scene from Meet Joe Black where the two of them are walking down the street about 5 times and then I realized it was kinda boring.
I was going to watch one more time so I could time my exit properly both so I could actually leave and so that I might actually see the two of them. While I watch a women was walking down the street and walk right into the two of them. The look on her face from what I could see was ridiculous, she was shocked. Can you imagine just walking down the street and bumping to Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt (who was single at the time he had just broken up with Gwyneth Paltrow, I had day dreamed while I watched them film that I would meet him and he would fall in love with me… I am serious, Miss A you will know what I mean and Boom Boom you will never know what I mean)
So while I did not actually meet Brad Pitt or Anthony Hopkins it is still a really fun story and the closest thing to an A list celebrity I have met.
Here is my other post about meeting Ben and Jerry (and Jimmy Fallon) which was pretty awesome too.
What celebrity have you met or want to meet?
