Say #HeyConcertHopper, Join the Conversation

A new monthly series is coming to starting this April, called Hey Concert Hopper! Each month there will be a theme and we’ll bring you different stories on that theme. We want to read, hear, and see your stories of the moments live music was the soundtrack to your life. We will be sharing your stories here every Sunday and on our social media accounts all week long.

We’re kicking off the series with stories of the first concert you attended. So dig that ticket stub out of your memory box and take us back to where your concert hopping began. Be honest with us. Given the average age of the concert hoppers that wander over to our corner of the interwebs, I anticipate reading at least a few stories about seeing your boy band crushes.

Holler at us! Contact us or use the hashtag #HeyConcertHopper on Twitter or Instagram.


I don’t have pictures from my first concert, but this is from my first in Chattanooga. At Club Fathom to see The Radio Fix in 2005(?).
