"Don't wish your life away."
-unknown, but attributable to everyone wiser than me (way too many to count)

You'd think at this stage of my life I would have learned to savour one day at a time and not rush things. I try to, I really do, but at this moment I find myself wanting to fast-forward to next Saturday. 'Cause you see dear reader, that's when I hit what is sure to be one of the biggest concerts of my life. Tiesto is in town!

For those of you not familiar with trance concerts or Tiesto himself I'll break it down a little. Picture 8,000 people (most of them half my age) on a massive dance floor with a laser light show, pyrotechnics and headache-inducing bass. That pretty much sums it up.

Back in Part 1 of my Mid-Life Crisis posts I anticipated the chance to attend an event like this but didn't think it would come until sometime next year. Not only was she good enough to make me aware of this concert but Sandy's also coming with me. How great is that? She's awesome.

The concert runs 9pm-3am so the goal is to dance our asses off and stay as long as possible. Of course we'll probably walk out with ears ringing, sore feet and general symptoms of a hangover when we wake up around noon. But it should be worth it.

Can't wait!!


  1. I have never heard of Tiesto but I will certainly have to check them out. :) That's awesome about the concert and so sweet of your wife! I hope you both have a blast!

  2. Thanks Jennifer, I'm really looking forward to the concert!

    Let me know what you think of the music, would ya?

  3. Enjoy it! Everyone I know that has seen Tiesto has been very impressed by his sets, and always enjoyed it!

  4. I'll do an update after the concert Jon.

  5. Enjoy! Sounds like you guys will have a great time. Sorry, I don't know who they(he/it) are.
    I'm still stuck in 1985 remember? Anyway we are going to see Blue Man Group in October so that should be ok.

  6. I've never heard of Tiesto but it sounds fun!! I really hope you have a blast!! I've gone to Industrial Techno concerts and when you see all the people dancing it's addicting!! hehe! You just gotta get up and join them!! Have fun!!

  7. You listen to Tiesto?!!?! That's so funny. The Winter Music Conference in SoBe is a nightmare for locals, but a dream come true for your Tiesto-loving crazy kids!
