John Legend, Corinne Bailey Rae Concert Last Night

Maybe I'm getting too old for concerts. It's not like I was at some young top 40 concert but I felt like a curmudgeon & I hate that. I know some people are only interested in the headlining act but HELLO? some of us actually want to see the opener. I went to the concert mainly to see CBR and there were people sitting near us who talked through the whole thing! And the lateness - what's up with that? If your ticket says 8 pm, try getting there at 7:45 not 8:45. I find it difficult to enjoy live music when the people in front of me are standing up to let latecomers get to their seats. See, I am too old for concerts, I sound like a nag.

Great concert though. CBR was very low key, mellow, laid back. John Legend seemed like Liberace compared to her - all glitz and energy. It was fun

I know this is kind of a late observation, but I wanted to chime in in agreement, not that you're too old for concerts but that there are way too many rude people going to music events not for the music but for socializing... go to Starbucks if you wanna socialize, I say!
