My favorite concert so far was Blue Man Group! I was so excited to be there I cried when they came out on stage to perform. The music was awesome and the visuals to go with it were phenomenal!

My favorite concert was the DSO at Meadowbrook playing the 1812 Overture and Romeo & Juliet about 10 years ago. I took my 18 year old nephew and we sat on the grass on a warm summer night. It was great!

Seeing Tony Bennett at the Music Hall with my Mom was the best. He and his band were magical and my Mom was sooooo happy. It's one of my favorite memories.
