My inner teenager let out a squeal last night. My whole life I’ve listened to a wide variety of music. I remember having 8-tracks of The Mamas and The Papas, Johnny Cash, Bobby Bare… I remember having records of Tiffany, Huey Lewis, Michael Jackson, more Johnny Cash, Guns N Roses, and more. I had tapes of Debbie Gibson, New Kids on the Block, Poison, Ozzy Osborne, Grateful Dead, etc… I had CDs of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Tori Amos, Boyz II Men, and so many more.
When I was in Jr. High School, a friend got 3 tickets to go see NKOTB and I was overjoyed when she took me with her to see them. I had so much fun despite the fact that two of us had colds.
My senior year in high school, I was dating a boy who wanted to go see Boyz II Men in concert. When we found out that they were coming to our state, I bought 4 tickets to surprise him. I figured we could find a couple-friend to go with us. He dumped me before the concert, so I gave the tickets to three friends and my girls made sure I had a good time.
Last night I saw that NKOTB, Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees will be touring together. Now, I’ve never seen 98 Degrees, but NKOTB and Boyz II Men have my inner teenager jumping up and down and clapping her hands and screaming, “Road Trip!” After all, “The Package Tour” will be in Orlando just two days after my birthday! The teenybopper in me may have to make this happen!
