The most amazing week

Thursday, 21 December 2017

Last week I had the most amazing, and busy, week. It was full of Christmas parties and get togethers and two of the most amazing concerts I have ever seen.

First we had the Field Family Annual Concert (yep, that's totally a thing now, last year it was Coldplay) and we saw the legendary Paul McCartney. A real life Beatle. I don't know anyone who doesn't love The Beatles so to be able to see one live was an experience I will never forget. I don't think the girls really appreciated it, frankly one of them was bored, but hopefully they will as time goes by. He played for an incredible 3 hours with only a couple of minutes off stage before the encore and told stories and anecdotes between each song. Some were about the songs, some about fellow Beatles and some about other musicians (Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, the list went on).

We had total nosebleed seats (or ear bleed in my case) but the arena is only small so you have a pretty good view no matter where you sit. It was a sold out show and worth every cent, and there were a few of them required for the four of us to attend. But totally worth it.

Five days later three of us made the hike back down the motorway to see my favourite band, Muse.

If you aren't familiar with them, check out this quick video to get an idea of how freaking awesome they are.

Our eldest opted out of this one as she'd already seen them twice before. Mr Homespun missed them the last time they toured due to work commitments and tried to get out of it this year as his work Christmas golf day was on the same day but we waited until he got home before heading to Sydney.  And he certainly wasn't sorry we did so. They put on an amazing show, as they always do, and we all had a fantastic night. We had incredible seats as you can tell from these photos.

Now I'm dealing with a serious case of post-concert melancholia (also totally a thing) as I get my head around possible never seeing one artist ever again and the others for another few years. Total mood killer.

Have you seen any incredible never-to-be-forgotten concerts? I'd love to hear who they were.
