24-Oct-2013 One Direction concert

Thursday 24 October 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

I took Kody and her friend Aimee to see One Direction at Homebush. We only just managed to get the tickets almost 18months ago as all the concerts sold out so quickly (I think 6 in total) and even then our tickets were supposed to be obscured view but were actually quite fine. I must confess I don’t like 1D at all and the plan was to get one of her older sisters to go in with her, but it turns out that even a free concert ticket was not bribe enough so I went myself.

I would say that 95% of the people were Under-18 year old girls with the rest beign a few parents. I met the kids in Sutherland after work and then we drove to Lidcombe and took the shuttle train.

The concert was actually much better than I imagined and although I don’t really care for the band, there did give a good show and worth the $80 a ticket. I did like it when they played a few covers that I knew ie One Way or another/Teenage Kicks (One Direction version), Originally by The Undertones and Blondie. I had both those records as a kid! They also did a good version of Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus. These covers had a much angrier guitar sound and I suspect that if they moved away from the very twee pop they would get a bit more critical acclaim.

Anyway the girls were over the moon and it was all a dream come true. We didn’t get home until gone midnight and I was glad to finally get to bed although my ears were still ringing from the music AND the screaming !
