My friends have no taste in music

OK, not quite true, but whenever I want to go to a concert (which is not a rock concert), I have no one to go with me.

I never limited myself to just one genre of music. Since I’m surrounded with mostly rockers, I have a problem finding someone to go with me to a classical concert for example. And I don’t want to pressure my friends to go with me. I have witnessed once, at Il Divo’s concert… a woman brought her husband to the concert. He got drunk and fell asleep. It’s a waste of money, if you ask me and the tickets weren’t exactly cheap. I enjoyed the concert and I see no reason why someone should “suffer” there.

Well, this year are going to be a lot of good concerts in my area. Not exactly in Slovenia, but in neighboring countries. Starting with Depeche Mode’s concert in Zagreb (Croatia) this Thursday. I’m not their die hard fan, but I like quite a lot of their songs so that’s why I would like to see them live. My friends think they have too many “slow” songs (hm?) and that the concert might be quite boring. Oh well.

Next week is Josh Groban’s concert in Vienna (Austria). If he had a concert in Ljubljana (Slovenia), I would go alone. But Vienna is a bit too far for me… to go to a concert all by myself, I mean. Considering that he’s still young and will sing for many years / decades, I hope I’ll have a chance to see him in the near future. Only if it won’t be like the friend of mine joked… She was a huge fan of The Kelly Family, with Paddy being her favorite member of the family. When they broke up as a group, Paddy went to the monastery. Well, I think this won’t be the case but you never know. (Josh, don’t do anything stupid, OK?)

Muse’s concert is another unfulfilled wish. At the end of June they are coming to Turin (Italy). None of my friends like them. At least not that I know of. I don’t understand what’s not to love. They’re excellent. Pure perfection. Whenever I hear their music I fall into a “trance”. My friend is joking that if this is the case, I won’t even know that I went to a concert with someone and I can go all by myself as well. Thanks for that, buddy. Obviously I’ll continue listening to them at home.

In the middle of July Jose Carreras is having a concert in Ljubljana (Slovenia). Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to see him. But definitely I’m going to see Eric Clapton, 2Cellos and Robbie Williams this summer. At least something, right?
