My cousin got the tickets for him and his other cousin to go to. She bought them for him as a Christmas gift, and there was no big deal there. I wasn't into country music at all, so it didn't bother me. They both were so it was all good in the hood. But a few days before the concert, something came up in her school that she couldn't miss, so she couldn't go anymore. He asked his brother, but he didn't want to go, so then he asked me.
After a few hours of pleading my case to my parents, I was allowed to go, and that Wednesday night, me and Mack, along with my mom and his mom, took the train out east, met me and my mom in Mineola, and we came into Penn Station, walked up the steps, went outside, then back inside, into Madison Square Garden, walked up a bunch of steps, and then sat in our seats. We were in the upper deck, right at an angle where you could see the side of the stage, but also the front, they were excellent seats.
There were two opening acts, and then Florida-Georgia Line. They were Frankie Ballard, Thomas Rhett, and then FGL. What was so cool about the concert, was that they didn't just play their country songs. They played other songs as well. Frankie Ballard closed with "Old Time Rock and Roll", by Bob Seger. Thomas Rhett sang "Uptown Funk", because that was the big song at that time, and FGL sang songs like "Treasure" by Bruno Mars, "All About that Bass", by Meghan Trainor, and "Forgot about Dre", by Dr. Dre and Eminem.
They all came together and closed the concert out, wearing both custom and non-custom Knicks (Yay!) and Rangers (Boo!) jerseys. Then we hopped back on the train, and went home. We had a lot of fun that night, and I am so glad that I said yes in the end to it, because now whenever we are riding around out east on the Island in his Jeep, we are blasting these songs and more on the radio!
Have you ever seen a concert at MSG? Do you like country music or country concerts? Would you have wanted to go to a concert that you knew nothing about, like I did?
Peace and Love,
