The arena was packed, the atmosphere tangible.
Tickets had been hard to come by as there had been restrictions put in place by the organisers. Potential attendees had to produce proof of ID and confirmation of age.
For many, it was a first to be able to see their icons in the flesh. For others, it was a trip down memory lane to times of real musical skill, no synthesizers and raw talent.
For the artists themselves it was a chance to prove they still ‘had it’ and could perform without the need of layered backing tapes or cheat by lip sync.

It began with the Emcee taking the mike to an almighty cheer and thunderous applause.
‘Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the First Official Senior Citizens Concert!’
The youngest in the audience had just turned 60, the minimum age allowed.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I went to a Moody Blues concert that was pretty much exactly as you described.

    So, this is a Rolling Stones concert then. πŸ˜‰

    I could imagine all us 60+ characters reliving the days of screaming youth, though being wary of blood pressure and false teeth falling out.
