If You're Debating On Going To That Concert, Do It

If You're Debating On Going To That Concert, Do It

It is 100% worth it.


I've never been a huge concert person. I never saw the value in spending money to go see someone on stage that I could listen to on my phone (and they would probably sound better on my phone). But I'm here to tell you that my previous opinion on concerts was so wrong.

I never understood why people would spend so much money to go see someone in concert until I decided to drive 4 hours to a big city to see my absolute favorite band perform. I'm lucky that they sounded so good in person, I know that not every artist is able to put on a good show and sound good in person.

But being there in person, surrounded by people who love them just as much as you do while you're screaming the words to every song, is exhilarating. I never understood the hype of concerts until I experienced what it was truly like to see someone you've listened to for over 7 years.

If you're debating whether you want to spend the money on those tickets or if you actually want to drive hours away for a couple hours worth of music, do it. I know it doesn't seem worth it, but until you're standing there with tears in your eyes listening to the one band/person that has been such a large influence on your life, you won't know what you're missing out on.

There's no other feeling like it. It doesn't seem worth it, but I promise you it is. Concerts can be expensive, but the feeling you get while you're there and the after-concert high is priceless.

If you're debating buying concert tickets, DO IT! You don't even need to get those good expensive seats, you'll have a good time no matter where you're seated. There really is no other feeling to compare it to. I know now that every time my favorite band is back on tour I'll be at the ready to buy tickets.

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

S.O.S The Jonas Brothers Are Having A Reuinion And I Am Burnin' Up Over It

Let me find my old TigerBeat posters.


Saying that 6 years ago my 13-year-old self was upset when the Jonas Brothers broke up is an understatement. I was devastated. So when I heard the news of a possible reunion, I obviously did what any other original fan of the band would do; freaked out and started listening to their old albums!

For me, the JoBros were my first ever boy band obsession. I can remember my cousin and I forcing my mom to listen to nothing but the "A Little Bit Longer" album in the car whenever we hung out.

After forcing my poor mother to listen to "Burnin' Up" about 500 times, my cousin and I were surprised with concert tickets. I lost my voice that night screaming their songs while wearing a Shane Gray, "Camp Rock" T-shirt. This was also the tour that Demi Lovato opened for the band, so you can say it was an iconic childhood moment for me.

Since the breakup, I've jammed out to Joe's new band, DNCE, laughed at Nick's acting in "Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle," and yes, I even watched Kevin's reality show, "Married to Jonas". Sadly, It just isn't the same. I still have their songs in throwback playlists to remind me of the band's prime.

I was scrolling through my Instagram when I first discovered the news. What I saw was a video of Nick Jonas singing the popular song, "Burnin' Up," with the caption "Y'all the Jonas Brothers are reuniting as a boy band". I had to do some research for myself and found an article from US Weekly telling me all the details.

Rumor has it that the band will reunite under a possible new name, JONAS. Though I will always refer to them as the Jonas Brothers, I'm loving the possible name change.

The group making more music has apparently been a topic of discussion since January of 2018 when the band's old Instagram page became active again. Since then though, the brothers have denied any speculation of the band reforming for another tour.

Nick Jonas hasn't been helping dampen down the rumors after apparently liking tweets by fans who are reacting to the news. So is there a possible tour happening soon?

All I can say is I'm going to "Hold On" to hope and try not to get "Paranoid" over the possibility of being able to see these three perform in concert again.
