Events in Seattle: Concert and Sounders Game

Over the past few weeks I have spent a lot of time watching Netflix, as well as reading. I started to run daily, again, which has been really nice. I have also had the pleasure of sleeping in everyday, while the rest of my family wakes up early to go to work and school. I must say, it has been relaxing, but it started to get boring. Once and awhile, though, I was able to get out of the house to go have some fun.

The first event I went to was the Beyonce concert at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. She is on her Formation World Tour. It was my first Beyonce concert, and I was excited to see such a talented performer. All day leading up to the concert I was worried that it may be pouring rain, which would be unfortunate, since the stadium does not have a roof. Thankfully, my sister and I had seats that were high enough up so that there was a cover over us. Those who were seated on the field did end up getting a bit wet towards the end of the show. DJ Khaled opened the show, which was an experience in itself. Many know him because of his Snapchat stories, which are a bit ridiculous.

After he was on stage for about half an hour, it was time for Beyonce. She came out and wowed the audience, of course. Although I did not know quite a few of the songs she performed, it was still fun to watch the performance and all of the theatrics that go along with it. The show ended at about 11PM, then we had to walk a few blocks to our car. Once we finally got to the car, it took us 1 hour to get onto the freeway, which was only a few blocks away (you’ve got to love Seattle traffic).

The next event I went to was the week following the concert. The Seattle Sounders FC was playing at CenturyLink Field on Saturday night. My dad and I used our friend’s tickets, which turned out to be really great seats! We were only 10 rows up from the field! I have always loved going to Sounders games, since I played soccer throughout my childhood, and the atmosphere is unreal! I really believe the Sounders have the best fans in the MLS… The Sounders dominated the game, but gave up an unlucky goal just before the half. The second half was filled with great chances for the Sounders, but they weren’t able to get a goal on the Colorado Rapids. It was a very disappointing loss, but everyone is hopeful that they will get back to winning ways during their next game.

It was so nice to get out of the house for a few exciting events! I’m looking forward to the next concert I will see in CenturyLink Field, which will be Kenny Chesney in July!

Until next time,
