A night to remember
Last night I was fortunate enough (fortunate as I am a fan) to obtain a last-minute ticket from a friend of mine to see the Powderfinger Sunsets tour at the Brisbane riverstage.
As we settled on the hillside, we sat and observed the different types of people that concerts attract. Concerts definitely bring out the very worst and the very best in people.
For me, live music brings out the best in me. The beats reverberate through my body, matches the beating of my heart, I feel the happiness coursing through my veins, and filling my soul with joy.
As we eagerly awaited the arrival of Powderfinger we were treated to the F1 11’s roaring overhead warming the skies with intense heat and intense atmosphere from the crowd to match. As the crowd clapped and cheered to a firework spectacular to celebrate Brisbane Riverfire I layed on the ground feeling uplifted and content.
Powderfinger rocked and I feel so privileged to be there for their final tour, as I was there in the beginning twenty years earlier, it is scary to contemplate my life how much has changed and how much of me has stayed the same.
Watching the concert was an emotional mix of fun, freedom, and reminiscing of the years gone by. The images on the screen matched the rapid images of my life flashing through my memory in quick succession. Music is a powerful tool for stirring up emotions.
Last night was a magical night, a night I will never forget.
