I’ve only ever seen one artist twice during the same tour, that was when Robbie Williams played MK Bowl back in 2001. And that was only because I bought myself tickets and my sister also bought me tickets, so I got to go twice!
Other than that, I am mostly happy to just see a band once during the tour. I mean I’ll go EVERY time they tour, but just the one gig each time. Now my mum comes to most Country gigs with me and will be my plus one if I don’t have one. My Dad doesn’t go to gigs, expect for Jack Jones. My parents try to see Jack Jones every time he tours, sometimes more than once.
When he tours next year, they are going THREE times. THREE! So maybe that’s where i get my gig obsession from!
2013 I got gig happy again, 12 music gigs, and a trip to the darts!

2012 saw the supergroup that was New Kids on the Block & Backstreet Boys join together! Plus I saw Kelly Clarkson again, she is one act when I see sing live I just want to be her, jumping around to ‘since you’ve been gone’. And on a complete whim after listening to 1 song on the radio I got tickets to see The Band Perry. Country acts don’t come to the UK often, so when they do.. I HAVE to see them! Like when I see Boots in the sale in my size, I HAVE to buy them too!
