30 Song Challenge: Song that Reminds Me of an Event

This, like most challenges like this, is technically suppose to be a 30 day challenge but I've decided to make it weekly because; sadly, I'll only be blogging for 25 more weeks (not counting the final blogoversary week).

Song #25: Song that Reminds Me of an Event

I'm going literal when I use the word "event," I feel originally it was meant as a moment in my life type of event, but I'm going with an event I went to. Which technically is a moment in my life.
Whatever my blog my rules, when have I ever done anything not my way?
Like normal sentences. Though, now that I mention it, I have gotten way better since I first began.

Not when it comes to avoiding tangents, of course. (Shout out to the person who got that word stuck in my head, we have that in common.)

Back to the song and event.
The song: Hey Jude by The Beatles

The event: The Beatles 50th at the Hollywood Bowl in August 2014, which I attended with my dad.

Honestly the line up was not great, it kind of seems like the person in charge decided to call whoever was in town that weekend and were willing to work cheap.
Performers weren't announced until. maybe, a week before the show so no one knew what to expect much like the marquee all the info said was Dave Stewart & "Special Guest." I'm guessing that a lot of people were expecting the Beatles (At the time; I joked that they probably expected all four, but come on at the price they sold tickets?) Paul McCartney is not showing up for my $28 ticket!

I barely remember the performers, but I do remember Billy Ray Cyrus, when he came out my dad leaned over and told me "it's the guy you like," still don't know where that came from. More like "the only guy on stage I'm familiar with!"
Did not love his first performance, it was like he was channeling his inner hippy rocker, I can't be the only one who wanted to yell "You're ruining a good song!"

But the second song, so much better.

Song 26: Haven't Met You Yet - Michael Buble
Song 27: Last Time For Everything - Brad Paisley
Song 28: Like A Virgin - Madonna
Song 29: Crazy - Daniela Andrade
Song 30: Dream A Little Dream - Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Next week's song: Song that reminds me of a place
