Sounds Like Music To My Ears

Music with its “good vibrations” (the Beachboys had it right) can centre us and help us re-set our wellbeing. Are you a fan of music? Have you taken a musical vacation or perhaps travelled on a cruise to enjoy your favourite tunes? Here are some of my favourite’s you might also enjoy.

Concerts at Sea

“You can find me where music meets the ocean” – Zac Brown Band

Yes, there are even concerts at sea! Take a cruise and enjoy music from all genres including classical with one of the world’s greatest pianists – Brooks Aehron or perhaps Rock N’ Roll music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s

Programmes at sea include a 16-night Norway & North Cape cruise on Azamara Journey on July 1, 2019, from Oslo, Norway to Edinburgh, Scotland. Along the way, you visit some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and experience the midnight sun for several days. Concerts at Sea also sail around the Caribbean visiting the beautiful islands of Grand Cayman, Belize, Mexico and more.

Far Away Concerts

A couple of years ago we travelled to see Bon Jovi in their hometown of New Jersey at the Metlife Stadium. Wow, what a concert it was too! I believe that there is nothing like seeing a band or comedian in their hometown.  The artists don’t hold back as they feel right at home; and always give the home crowd something that little bit extra from playing time to the local banter. If you have never done it, I would highly recommend. The atmosphere and audience engagement is amazing.
