As we head into warmer weather one thing is for sure, concert season has already kicked off, and this year it started with a bang.
This past week, my bestie and fellow Addict, Nadia and I, started our concert season with Rihanna’s amazing show in Toronto. The show was of course action packed and Rihanna in her regular style seemed to be having just as much fun as we all were, and what better way than to spend your night with your best friend, at a great show, in the city you love? Thanks, of course, to American Express Invites for getting me the access to secure presale tickets to one of the hottest shows in city this spring!
From Taste of Toronto to Florence and the Machine, to A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder, there really is something for everyone, but what really makes the perfect night out, besides getting the heads up on the best events?
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to a concert, or especially a music festival and the person or people I’m with want to see totally different band than the ones I do, or they’re more interested in being on their phone, or in the worst case, finding out they just came along for the ride and have no interest in the show at all. Boring.
This is why Nadia and I work so well together, aside from being best friends, we always have fun, and try and enjoy every moment together. So when we went to see Rihanna last week, we dove right in, danced a little, sang a bit, and as always, had an amazing night.
If I had a nickel for every time I saw broken sandals, girls hobbling around on stilettos, or my fave – people walking around in bare feet, I would be rich. I can’t stress this enough. You should always wear comfy shoes for an indoor concert. If you’re going to an outdoor festival, it’s probably better to wear boots. Honestly, I’m telling you this as I don’t want you to be the barefoot concert goer who looks like they have lost their dog. I want you to have a great time, and as Nadia and I can attest to (for both this and the previous point), the right clothing and footwear means that you’ll be comfortable and be able to focus on what matters – the music, and most of all, having fun!
