First Concert Memories

by Dawn Betza, Marketing Coordinator

This blog comes on the heels of a big first in my family – my daughter’s first concert, Taylor Swift at Heinz Field. And wow, what a show — or better yet, what a spectacle! Taylor does not disappoint. My daughter is 9, much younger than I was when I saw my first concert…Rick Springfield back in 1983. But I remember so many details, almost like it was yesterday, because it was such a memorable event in my life.

Music inspires, empowers and motivates. We listen together with our peers, go to concerts with friends, dance with significant others – exciting & meaningful times in our lives. When you hear a song from the past, it transports you back in time to a particular moment or feeling as if you were actually there.

I recently read an article about the ‘reminiscence bump.’ Psychologists say that we tend to recall more memories under the age of 30 than any other time in our life, this is because we experience things for the first time & everything is new.

So what was your first concert? I thought it would be interesting to share some of the artists who have performed at the Erie Insurance Arena & Warner Theatre over the years.  I’m sure many of you have special memories or a few good stories from attending one of these shows!

Update on Dierks Bentley Refunds and Presque Isle Concert

refundandreschedule

We’re getting calls and messages on these two topics, so we want to provide some information to help everyone!

Dierks Bentley: The last of the credit card refunds have been processed and should be returned by this week. Unfortunately, it’s a lot quicker to take money out than it is to put it back in. We appreciate everyone’s patience with the cancellation and refund. We always work toward doing everything we can to put on a great show, but sometimes that cannot happen.

Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton: Presque Isle Partnership is working with the artists for a rescheduled date. Despite a “rain or shine” billing, the weather forecast Friday night made the concert a no-go for safety reasons. All of us at Erie Events are handling ticketing for this concert, and we can take any questions you may have regarding ticketing.

We’re always here to help — let us know if you have any other questions on these topics or others!
