Last year I twice missed the opportunity to see Phoenix live. They are my all time favourite band (search them on YouTube) and I needed to see them live. Truthfully, when I wrote my 30 in 365, I wasn't even sure if they were going to be touring this year!. So imagine my surprise when I saw the announcement that they would be coming to North America this year!!
The concert was last Wednesday and it was awesome! I went with two of my sorority sisters (hey guys!) and we had a blast! The concert was in Detroit at The Fillmore. It's such a beautiful venue! Phoenix played all of my favourite songs and it was such a blast singing (read: screaming) along and dancing! There were all sorts of people there and I still get goosebumps thinking about how people so different from one another can all come together to see one artist. It really shows how universal music can be.
I took a handful of photos with my phone:
After the concert we (naturally) wanted to eat. We settled on McDonalds (horrible..I know) and after being misled by the GPS for a good 20 minutes, we found one, bought really cheap 'food' and headed back across the border!
I had such a blast at the concert and I'm really happy that I'm able to cross this off of my list! xoxo
