stlucia lolla kaplan 19 I Would Walk 500 Miles: How Far Would You Go for a Concert?

“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.
