And if you don’t want to read my half-assed recap (bulleted list of highlights, of course), then fine. Be that way. I’m still floating about this world like a big ball of sunshine because that night gave me the greatest concert experience of my life plus some really lovely little moments which will forever play on loop on the insides of my eyelids.
Read this fan’s experience. Just do it. It’s hilarious and real and just truly shows the importance of that night. Thank you for sharing.
