Today’s Sunday Photo was taken at the Manchester Arena on Monday 6th February 2017, when Green Day were playing. I’d taken Lyle up for the evening – he’s a big Green Day fan and this was his very first concert.
I only knew a handful of tracks before the concert, but it was such a fantastic experience that I came away from the evening a big Green Day fan myself! It was two and a half hours of high-energy loud music, and masses of fun. I was really surprised by the mix of people in the crowd as well. I saw groups of young women, teenage lads, families out with their kids, men in their 40’s and couples in their 60s. Truly a mixed fanbase!
As you can see from the photo, we were up in the higher level of the Arena, but still had a great view. Though I have to admit that I was really jealous of everyone in General Admission – especially the three people who got pulled up on stage.
Lyle had a great experience for his first concert, and it got me thinking about my favourite gigs. There’s a blog post on that to follow…!
