Music Monday: 3 Concerts I'd Pay a Bunch of Money for

I love music. Big time. It's in my blood and makes my life better. But I've never been much of a concert-goer, one, because I'm cheap and would rather spend money on travel and dessert and two, because there aren't too many artists I like enough to listen to them for an entire album, let alone live, for hours, with other people singing along. There are musician's I'd see for less (a post on that later)

1. Justin Timberlake
Maybe I'm 14 years old. Maybe it's because I never had boy band mania when I was 14. Maybe it's just that Justin Timberlake is talented, dreamy/steamy, and and obnoxiously charming and funny that I think he'd put on a great show. Sadly, I didn't discover this until recently, and the man came to Seattle in January. I'm seriously considering flying to Omaha (or somewhere random) for a show. That's hour fourteen I am.
I'll take the man on the right, thank you
2. John Mayer
No surprise, I'm a Mayer-o-phile. I can listen to John Mayer many days a week for hours on end. I've been unable to attend every time he's come to the Gorge, and this year he's doing Europe, probably grieving his and Katy Perry's relationship demise, and writing poignant songs that get right to the heart of love, loss, and living life. It's what he does, and what I want to be a part of it in an audience.

3. Elton John/Billy Joel
Seriously the only concert I've ever paid more than 20 bucks for and I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO GO. They rescheduled for 3 months later when I was out of the country. I was robbed and am now waiting for the two to join forces again. (Get your alcoholism together, Billy, and Elton will take you back!)

Join me?
