Selena Gomez Live In Concert

100 4197
Huge HUGE crowd!

Last Friday we took our daughter to her first concert, she brought along her cousin another HUGE Selena fan.

We wanted to make it special so it had to be her idol, Selena Gomez. She is a huge FAN of Wizards of Waverly Place on the Disney Channel and luckily her tour was passing through New York. Not to close thought it was 2 1/2 hours away in the middle of nowhere, literally. They build an outdoor amphitheater (Bethel Woods Center for the Arts) where the original Woodstock Concert was in 1969. When we got there we got a chance to look around and truly it is a huge field that goes on for miles.

Selena had 2 really good opening acts, Christina Grimmie, which I had never heard of her but, I'm told her songs are on Radio Disney and she was very good, she had a really great voice. The second was All Star Weekend and they were great too. Then Selena came on and performed for 2 hours. The concert in total was about 3 1/2 hours so we felt it was well worth the long drive, not to mention the smiles and gratitude from my daughter. She really looks up to Selena and just to see her in person really meant the world to her. Our seats were not bad actually right in the middle about 25 rows back. However, my husband and I will need some new ears from all the little girl, tween and teenager girls screaming.

  2. Diane- On our way home from Atlantic City today, I spotted a billboard announcing this upcoming concert. So sad- I didn't know the name. Now I've heard it twice in one day and you've given me some background! It sounds as though your cuties had a super time :D
