Fergalicious ...



Another great concert at....

For one week every summer Quebec City hosts a grand concert series. Each night there is a "big name" artist on the main stage with many smaller venues throughout the old city. Passes sell for around $55.oo which is good for all shows. This is the first year they sold out. Luckily for my husband and I, we were able to use passes purchased by friends (who were not going to see the same shows that we wanted to see). Their generosity allowed us to have a lot of free fun.






I never imagined that we would be grooving to the Black Eyed Peas on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City, but we were. I had swollen feet and a soar throat the next day to prove it. There were over 110,000 people inside of the gates and another 50,000+ people gathered outside of the gate....that's a lot of Black Eyed Peas fans. Despite the masses of people, all concert goers were under control and we never felt like sardines as one might suspect with that many people. I wouldn't consider myself a "concert goer", but it was a really fun week of musical entertainment... I'm already looking forward to next year.

What's the last concert you went to?

Would you believe I have never been to a concert? I mean I've been to the Portland Symphony, but not to a rock concert. I'm old, what can I say/ lol

Oh, I bet BEP was fantastic live! I haven't been to a concert in years! I think the last one I attended was the Red Hot Chili Peppers back in college, maybe seven years ago?

Enter to win an Oufi London leather handbag! (Retail value: $140)

i heart Fergie Ferg!!! She's the bomb! I'm so jealous!

I really have to think back to my last concert - I think it was David Bowie and Nine Inch Nails. During my crazed med school days.
