In My Ears...Mary J. Blige


I had the pleasure of attending the Mary J. Blige concert at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord, CA this past weekend for freeeeee. I had a really wonderful time. Mary J. is still her ghetto fabulous self! She was working a  lot of fitted jumpsuits, dresses and over the knee boots. She was in amazing shape!

My experience was enhanced by the amount of weed that was being smoked around us. I inevitably got a contact high that was out of this world. I haven't been high in years and it felt so strange.

Best part... I had snacks in my purse. So when the munchies hit I was READY! LOL!

I had a BALL!!!!!!!!!

I sang all the songs I liked to the top of my lungs and danced like a wild woman. If you follow me on twitter then you saw my blurry pics from the Keisha seats. Hahahahahahahaha!

 It was the best time EVER!! 

I really would like to start going to concerts again and the 2 I've attended so far was the kick off . I love live music so much. It will be great to just live and enjoy life once again.

Mary's set was good, but she didn't sing many of my favorites so I had to go to trusty YouTube to get the songs In My Ears. I could add more but I'll stop here. Enjoy!

sidebar: D'angelo was good. I do NOT like his new rocker steez. Nope.

Keisha smoking on Keisha!! Ha! They got you. At least you had a good time. Mary does a great show if she works in enough of the stuff people wanna hear. I had to go down your timeline to see your pictures and tweets about it.

I chose not to attend that concert because the prices for the seats that I prefer started at $200 per person. Each and everytime that I've been to Concord, there has been lots of Mary Jane in the air. At the Maxwell concert, he even yelled to them that they needed to share if they were going to smoke at his concert.

I was the same way when I saw Mary at the rodeo the year before last. I sang until i was hoarse!! I'm glad that you had a good time.

@Daji
Hmm... I thought she made her way up there. You may just have to come to the Bay next time she's here. Her show is AMAZE-zing!

I had an opportunity to see Mary J. perform at this past Essence Festival (first time seeing Mary do her thing on stage) and she brought down the house. I love Mary J. Blige, all she represents as an R&B, soul artist.

The woman leaves everything on stage.

Yes, Mary j. Blige concerts usually bring out the weed smoke in full force. Lol.
