“I have to go to this.” We’ve all said this at one time or another. Whether fleeting or heartfelt, there’s nothing more important in our lives in that one moment, when our bodies are convulsing with electricity. Sadly, most tend to brush these thoughts aside, labeling them fantasies as they scoff and quietly cry in their cubicle — others don’t.

Because we’re all about sharing our concert experiences lately, we thought we’d celebrate the times we challenged our own obsessions. So, with The Proclaimers’ 1988 hit “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” echoing in our heads, we tore back the pages of our weathered thoughts (and credit card statements) and decided to share our musical adventures.

What we discovered is that we’ve traveled pretty far for music. But we’re sure you have as well, so please share your own conquests below in the comments. Don’t worry, we’re all crazy here.

My wife and I drove from peoria, il to Chicago after work on a Friday, caught a late flight to Raleigh, NC, where we arrived at 1 AM. The next day we got up, hung around and that night went to a Barenaked ladies concert. We made the trip solely because the Beautiful South were opening for them, and we really wanted to see The South live. Got up early Sunday, flew back to chicago and drove home.
