Year In Review 2014

Another year has come and gone… here is the break down of my year (concert wise)  I did not go to nearly as many shows as I usually do, which can probably be blamed on the fact that Hanson did not tour (though I still saw them several times)

Most expensive show:

Every year this is a trick question.  Overall – the trip to see Hanson in Jamaica was the most expensive, but it’s hard to break down how much of it is paid for the shows vs the resort, etc.
Most expensive was Justin Timberlake VIP.
And most expensive non-VIP was Justin Timberlake’s regular concert ticket in July that was $217.

Least (not free) expensive show:
For the second year in a row, Action Item at $22.50
Free shows:
The Sing Off, Hanson (x8), Summer Kick Off Concert, Jennifer Lopez, KC101 Summer Fling, O-Town

# artists seen: 62
# unique artists seen: 29
