If You Could Go to Any Concert...

In general, I hate icebreakers. But I've heard a few good ones that I use over and over. Today, I'd like to share with you my favorite icebreaker of all time. I stole it from Bill Search of Simple Small Groups fame, and I use every chance I get.

If you could attend any concert in the history of the world, what would it be?

For whatever its worth, my answer would be Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison.

Oh, this is too hard. After considering concerts by Joan Baez (I am a huge fan, especially of her early stuff), Kenny Chesney, Smithfield Fair, Keith Green, Nanci Griffith, Ronan Tynan, the Irish tenors, Elvis, etc., I have settled on the very first performance of Handel's Messiah. Wouldn't that have been awesome? I still get goose bumps when I hear the "Hallelujah Chorus," and am usually the first one to pop up out of my seat as per the tradition that was started by the British king (cannot remember which one.) As a side note, I would like to be in the audience of Susan Boyle's first concert.

That was my #2 answer-- Handel's Messiah.

I know I said John Denver at the artists gathering, but I'm changing my answer to a 3 way tie: Led Zeppelin, Elvis, and The Beatles.

I think it would have been a treat to have heard the Carter family the first time they played the Grand Ole Opry. That Appalachian music rocks my boat. I love to hear them sing "Wildwood Flower." I still settle for Handel's "Messiah" as my first choice, though. That piece of music has impacted the world for years.

I can't narrow this one down to just one - sorry - Focus is a skill I lack when it comes to music.

I'd love to see:
Future of Forestry

Would love to have been there:

Soul Survivor the first time Matt Redman performed "Heart of Worship" after months of no music in the church and people bringing their simple offerings instead.

Chris Tomlin in Africa when the king came in and interrupted the concert/worship time. (The song "Be Glorified" was birthed out of this experience.)

Deleriou5 - Wimbley Stadium

Seen them, but would love to experience it again:

Promise Keepers "Stand in the Gap" event in DC when we sang on the mall (Probably doesn't qualify as a concert)

U2-but it would have to take place in a Soccer Stadium in South America or Europe. That way the concert would come with a fun trip too. The stadium atmosphere would be crazy.
