I'm sure you've all heard about the tragic bombing at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester last night, which left 23 people (many children) dead and countless injured. I don't really know what to say about it, except that I can't imagine what it must have been like and what trauma everyone there must be going through. It kills me to think of something as joyous as a music concert being a place for such horror. I just...have...no words, except that I'm so sorry.
Since I was on Ariana's last tour (the Honeymoon Tour), this hit a bit close to home. Some of my patrons are former AG tourmates (Tim, Kelly, young galaxy), other patrons only discovered me because of Ariana Grande, and many more of you have seen her in concert or listened to her music.
So, I hope y'all don't mind me sharing one of my favorite tour memories, from our 2015 concert at Summersonic Festival. I loved this concert a lot. It was warm, I was happy, and "Be My Baby" was my favorite song that we performed. Like I said, a couple of my patrons are in this video too, so look out for them.
*This is where I'd like to insert some cheesy but true thing about the power of music, staying safe, being present, relishing in life's beautiful moments, and how much I appreciate every damn one of you reading this post -- but alas, I can't put the right words together.*
