In my 21 years on this earth, I have been to three concerts: Colbie Caillat, T-swizzle (Taylor Swift) and the one and only Beyoncé. As I have gotten older I find myself wanting to see so many more artists, but not having the time or money.
The next two years, however, I am planning to put my big girl pants on and go to some awesome concerts! Here is a list of must-see, upcoming concerts.
Xcel Energy Center: March 12, 2018
While it may be too late to find tickets, P!nk is coming to town this week. P!nk is an artist I’ve always wanted to see live. I’ve heard from friends who have been to her concerts that she [P!nk] puts on a pretty spectacular show. From singing hits like “Get the Party Started” to incorporating aerial acts, P!nk is a must-see!
We Banjo 3
Cedar Cultural Center: March 15, 2018
If you enjoy folk music, I highly suggest you see We Banjo 3. They are an Irish Folk band that played at the Irish Fair of Minnesota this past summer. If you need another reason to expand your taste in music, one of the band members looks like Ryan Reynolds, so yeah.
Xcel Energy Center: April 28, 2018
I am a huge fan of classic hair bands from the ‘70s and ‘80s, so it makes sense that Bon Jovi is on my concert list. Though Jon Bon Jovi has aged like fine wine, his music is timeless and always a banger.
Journey & Def Leppard
Target Field: July 27, 2018
Again, huge fan of hair bands. Journey and Def Leppard together? Holy crap! You know that this concert is going to be filled with classic hits like “Don’t Stop Believin,’” “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Wheel in the Sky.”
Target Center: February 21 and 22, 2019
Okay, if I don’t get tickets to any of Elton John’s farewell concerts, consider me eternally bitter. I have been trying to get tickets for his concerts at the Target Center, but according to the website they’re sold out. Not only is Elton John brilliant, but his music is something that everyone knows. Some of his songs are featured in movies like The Lion King (He wrote the soundtrack for this movie) and Sing (“I’m Still Standing”), others are just so popular that everyone, in some way, knows them.
These are just a few of the concerts I must see to live happily. To see what other artists are coming to Minnesota, click here.
