This is going to be a good year for concerts.
Yes, once again I will be seeing New Kids on the Block’s The Main Event tour, with Nelly and TLC. And later in the year, I’ll be seeing Ricky Martin, on his One World tour.
To say I’m excited would be an understatement.
I’ve seen NKOTB numerous times; both when they were legitimately a boy band, and when they were more, um mature. And it’s a good time all around. All the women in the crowd were the same girls standing arm-in-arm 20 years ago, with scrunchies in our hair and pink lip gloss on our lips screaming at Maple Leaf Gardens.
We’re just older and wiser.
And so are they.
I saw Ricky Martin when he toured the Livin’ La Vida Loca World Tour in 2000, and scored myself front row seats for that one.
It was a great show and I loved every minute of it.
While his presence in North America faded a bit over the years, he found himself, came out of the closet and has now dropped a new album A Quien Quiera Eschuchar, and I just got my pretty little hands on it.
It’s hard to find CDs nowadays.
I could care less that there are no English tracks on it, or perhaps I purchased the Latin CD? Either way he does have some English tracks, including today’s Music Monday pick Mr. Put it Down by Ricky Martin featuring Pitbull.
There are a few extended versions and remixes online, however this is the original. So new, there isn’t a video yet. But I needed to share it with you, as it puts me in a good mood and although I still have approximately 178 days until he’s on stage, I can guarantee you this will be on repeat until then!
Not that I’ve counted, or anything.
