To start this off, I will say that I have been to more than one concert, but to me, the Logic concert had to be the most exciting. First, this is the first concert that I have ever gone to without any adults. Now, that may not seem like a huge deal to some people, but to me it felt really good. It felt as if I had more freedom, and that is always something worth being happy about because right now most of us are at the age where our parents expect us to act like adults but still treat us as if we’re children.

If I’m being completely honest, I hadn’t much listened to Logic before this concert. I knew who he was and I knew one of his very popular songs that most people know anyway, but that was about it for me. My boyfriend, on the other hand, absolutely LOVED Logic, so when he found out that he was in Indianapolis, he just HAD to go. The funny thing is, he actually didn’t even know that he would be able to go. His mom bought us tickets to go to the concert and gave them to him for a graduation gift, so how could I possibly turn that down? Not only did she just get us both tickets, she got us both third row tickets, yet we almost didn’t sit in them. At that point, even I was excited to go to this concert even though I didn’t actually listen to him because I found out that two artists, NF and Kyle, that I did listen to were opening for Logic.

As the days went by our topic of conversation always seemed to lead right back to the same place: The concert. The anticipation was killing us as the weeks we had to wait to go to the concert passed by and turned into the days we had to wait to go to the concert. It was coming up quick and neither of us could wait. A couple days passed and here it was, the day of the concert. We were ready as ever. I drove to his house, excited as I thought I could be, to get out and see him and become even more excited. It seemed as if seeing him as excited as he was made me even more excited. We went inside, said goodbye to his parents, and then we were on our way.

The drive to Indy felt so slow yet so fast at the same time. As we were on our way to Indy, the drive felt never ending, but once we were there, it hit us. This is real, this is actually happening, we are actually about to go watch some of our favorite artists perform and we are about to be very close to them while doing it it. We park, walk up to the gates, and wait as patiently as we can to get into the Ruoff Home Mortgage Center. The gates open and we make our way through the line until we are in. The first thing that we do is get drinks because it was unbelievably hot outside that day. Now, we are on our way to find “our seats.” What happened was we sat down in the right seat numbers, but not the rights section, so when the people who actually had those seats got there, they kindly explained to us that we were just simply sitting in the wrong section. After that we walked up to security and asked if he knew where our section was. He pointed us in the right direction and we were on our way again. Once we got to our seats, it became unbelievably hard to hide how excited we were because it was about to start and we were as ready as we possibly could be to witness it.

The first performer out was a singer/rapper named Kyle. I like a few of his songs so that was good for me; the next performer out was NF, and I LOVE NF. I was so incredibly excited to see him perform live that I couldn’t control it. I was jumping around, singing, and dancing like crazy, but that wasn’t who everyone was there to see. After NF left the stage, security began to prepare it for Logic and I could just feel the vibes changing. Everyone was ready for this moment. This is what we camefor and finally, here it was. The lights were flashing; people were screaming, dancing, and singing. It was an amazing experience and after this concert I began to listen to Logic even more because not only did I actually really like his music, but he seemed like an amazing, funny, confident, extremely nice, and down to earth person.

As the night came to an end and we were on our way out to the parking lot, we were still overwhelmed with excitement. It was crazy to believe that we were just that close to the three of them. We spent about 30 minutes trying to find Connor’s car because we forgot to check which lot we parked in, but it was all worth it. We had an amazing night, I began to like another artist, and the experience was one definitely worth having.

    Laney, this sounds like a awesome experience. I love listening to logic and NF and Kyle are both very talented as well. I’m glad you got to experience this and share it. This article was a good read.

    I really like how you spoke your mind about your love for NF and it’s really cool that you got to experience him live. I feel as though it is crazy to listen to someones music for so long then be able to hear them in person to find out they are even better. I went to a Charlie Puth concert over the summer and it was awesome so I can understand your excitement.

    Lanie, I love this article. You did an excellent job at naming all the events and excitement you had while awaiting for the concert. You did a wonderful job at portraying your emotion where the reader could imagine it as well. I have been to many concerts, and this feeling you described was perfect.

    You did a great job explaining how you felt at the concert and how attending this concert led you to listen to other artists of the same genre also. I attended the Wiz Khalifa concert and it was just as breathtaking as your experience. Great job Lanie!
