James Bay – Concert Review

James Bay was in Charlotte Sunday night, September 25th, 2016.  Of course, my daughter and I had to go when we heard the concert announcement back in April.  When tickets went on sale, I got busy at work and completely forgot to go online and buy them. When I went on that night at home, it was SOLD OUT!!! Needless to say, my daughter was not very happy with me on that day.

I went back on to the ticket site and signed up for a text notification if any tickets become available.  May comes and goes with no luck.  June, pretty much the same thing until around the end of the month on June 29th.  We were on vacation in Myrtle Beach and sitting in a restaurant, so I can get some seafood, when a text message pops up on my phone.  I told my daughter that when we got back to the condo, we would order the tickets. Nope!! Wasn’t good enough.  She was not having that. I had to go on my phone right then and there, in the restaurant, and buy the tickets.  Which I did!  We now had 2 tickets to the show.

Tori Kelly – Concert Review

On Thursday, April 21st, I took my daughter to see her favorite singer, Tori Kelly.  I wasn’t real excited about going as I didn’t know much about her.  I have heard some songs on the radio but that was about it.

However, I love my daughter and want her to experience music the way I have all my life. So being the great father I am (cough, cough), I sucked it up and went.  The thing I was dreading the most was the 5 hours of standing.  Why standing??  Tori Kelly performed at the Fillmore in Charlotte, NC.

FullSizeRender-2 (1)The Fillmore is a standing room only facility and first come first serve on where you can stand.  The concert started at 8pm and the doors opened at 7pm.  This means you have to get there early to get in line for when the doors open at 7pm.

We actually didn’t arrive until about 6:15-6:20 and there were already 2 very long lines. One line was longer than the other, so we chose the shortest line, naturally.  As we were standing in the shorter line, some nice, very loud, lady screams that the line we are in is for Fast Pass and VIP’s only.  Well, we were neither of those.
