While 2022 kicked off not only with an in-person show but shows in another country, there was definitely still some virtual filler in there to make sure I still got my “streak” of 1 show a month.  Once May hit and I got over covid, it seemed live shows also hit an uptick. I ended the year with 50 in person concerts and 11 streams and an overall total of 731 in person concerts.

Most expensive show:
Other than Back To The Island which is hard to price out by show, it looks like NKOTB was the most expensive at $126.50 and I saw them twice at that price.

Least (not free) expensive show:
I’ll exclude virtual since they were all for the most part $20 or under… Hanson’s storytellers was $30 and Tartan Terrors were $40.

Free shows:
The Masker Singer Tour, Hanson’s Members only show, Gaelic Storm, Stephen Kellogg and Blues Traveler

# artists seen: 155
# unique artists seen: 25
# shows seen in CT: 17
# of shows out of state: 6 out of the country / 27 out of CT

Show farthest away: I don’t feel like mathing but I’m going to say Vancouver
Closest show: Fairfield CT
$$ spent on tickets: about $3k excluding BTTI and Disney
Miles traveled: 41,862
