Argumentative Essay On Matchbox

Good Essays
On September 26 of 2017 I attended the Matchbox 20 concert at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Maryland Heights, Missouri. Matchbox 20 is an American pop/rock band. The band consist of five members, Rob Thomas, Kyle Cook, Brian Yale, Adam Gaynor, and Paul Doucette. Each member of the band plays at least 3 instruments and rotates who is playing what instrument in many of their hit songs. Matchbox 20 has been around since 1995, and has visited St.Louis numerous times. From the start of the concert I knew it would be a fun night due to the uplifting music, upbeat attitude of the band, and the rowdy crowd. I was 3 rows away from the stage when the arena suddenly went pitch black and Matchbox 20 entered the stage. From the second the arena went dark to the very end of the show people were screaming and signing along to every song without missing a beat.

Together it was fun to sing and dance alongside my built in best friend. Saying that I enjoyed the concert would be an understatement. I still love the band’s music like I did before the concert, but now I appreciate the music more than what I ever did before I went to this show. Being in the Music in America class I now appreciate the talent and hard work that artist put into composing, performing, and shows all together. I never thought about how many people it takes to put on a show until I watched all of the different light and color changes throughout the show. I will continue to see Matchbox 20 any time they come to St.Louis, Oakland, Scottsdale, or New York City. Altogether the band puts together an amazing and high tech show, that captures thousands of people and truly made me appreciate artist all

    There were many guests singing along with every song during the show. The audience appeared to be caught up in the moment and loving the musical. The production/playwright wanted to bring the popular 1980’s Dirty Dancing movie to the big stage and they did an amazing job. The musical was definitely a huge hit and was worth every penny spent to produce it. I was amazed by this musical, not only because I love the movie but also because they brought the movie to life on stage.…

    From the first song of, “Defying Gravity” to the last song of “Let it Go”, it was a wonderful experience. Menzel not only entertains, she is interactive with the audience and comes into the crowd. I never thought that a famous artist would reach out to her fans that way to me it was very surprising. The audience was very pleased and happy for the way Menzel would interact with her audience. Menzel sang a song called, “Take Me or Leave Me” from the musical “Rent” and did a duet with the audience.…

    Little increments Kanye included were a bonus for people attending, he wanted us to be motivated by his story. Probably one of the greatest music concert I will ever see, spectacular songs and just the wonderful experience in general. The service really irritated me since it was annoying waiting so long but Kanye made up for it with an awesome performance. I would hands down see his next concert after he makes another new album. More importantly, for people who love rap or just getting into the culture.…

    This is why I had to go and support my country and its musicians. We were all really excited to experience this concert. There was a massive propaganda on radio and other media to promote the musicians. I couldn’t believe that more than 20 musicians could entertain us for almost 5 hours. While we were getting closer to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino we realized that was a sold out event, the line of cars was endless, I was afraid that we wouldn’t make it on time.…
