With the unexpected fun my sister and I had at the Beatles show in June, we thought it would be fun to do something like that again. At Christmas I saw an ad and decided to get tickets for the April 5 show at the Esplanade as a present for her. We're both big MJ fans and have a lot of memories listening to his music growing up, so there was no shortage of enthusiasm when it came time for the concert.
I joked last year about the crazy lady we sat next to, but this year I actually went to the show with her. I'm still not sure if my sister realized it wasn't actually Michael Jackson. She screamed and danced, and we both sang along to every song. You were also allowed to snap pictures, so I got some awesome shots of the concert. No question, we made the most of the show and quoted South Park's Mr. Jefferson more times than I can remember. It was a brilliant way to catch up, and clearly, a great time!
