My First Concert Ever!


The first concert I have ever attended was when I went to go see JayZ and Mary J Blige in Miami for their Heart of the City Tour in 2008.

I was 17, when I was at work & I got the phone call from my cousin telling me he had 2 tickets and if I wanted them. Of course I said Yes! I have never been to any concert. So I asked my sister if she wanted to come with me, and she did. So I left work to go pick her up. I got my camera and went. First of all if you have never been in downtown miami well its not a fun scenario when you have to be somewhere, and considering this was the first time i drive down there it was scary. Its not really a good neighborhood to get lost in let me just say that.

When I got the venue, it said no flash photography, and remember this was my first concert, so I was like dam ok i cant take my camera. I didnt realize this meant PROFESSIONAL cameras, not 100 dollar ones. DUH! So at my first concert I got absolutely no pictures. We had great seats though. We sat in the Bacardi suite which meant cushioned seats. You may be wondering why I just didnt use my phone to take pictures, well my phone at the time was a Sidekick ID in spongebob yellow. This phone had no camera.

I can tell you that the opening act was The Dream singing his song Falsetto before anyone even knew who this guy was. It literally looked like the dancers were having sex on stage. I was a little embarrassed for my sister being there because she was only 13.

Here is a picture I found online of something that was going on with the Dream’s performance.

It was worse than this picture I just couldnt find a better one.

Then Mary J Blige Came out and boy did she rock the stage. When Jay Z came out the crowd went crazy. He had Kanye West come out no one knew this was going to happen which was cool.

For my first concert this was great.

    • Yes she was. She is definitely a must see, you dont see much talent like her anymore, her show was not all crazy and circus like. Her voice and one type of clothes was enough for her. She doesn’t need the extra crazy things to distract.

  1. Much cooler than my first concert 🙂 Bummer about the pictures. If it’s any consolation, unless you are in the first few rows, they usually don’t turn out anyway. But I know what you mean…it’s nice to have a memento.

  2. darn, I remembered just now that I really don’t think this was my first concert. The first person I ever saw was when I was 15 and in Freshman year with my then boyfriend and my mom and sister and we went to House of Terror at International Mall in Miami, and they said that Jarule would be performing. I was surprised that he would actually be there since the entrance was only like 25 dollars, yet this was when Jarule was at the end of his career, AS we were waiting for him to come out we hear his music and see a guy in a mask with needles all over and I was like yeah that’s not him, and turned out it was. It was truly a lame concert. I prefer the Jay Z one, as well as the free Pitbull concerts, and Britney Spears concerts I have gone to.
