  1. I saw Chris Issak in Dallas about 15 years ago and he was an awesome performer changing for one sequins outfit to another during performance.

  2. I went to the American Idol Tour this summer with some high school friends. I think the last local concert I went to with my husband was Gavin DeGraw at George’s.

  3. I went with my husband last summer to see YES at the AMP. It was one of his favorite bands and I was happy to experience it with him.

  4. Last concert I went to was at least 15yrs ago. Smashing Pumpkins and Garbage in LR. I was cool then, not so much now. Okay, not so much back then either.

  5. Saw the Goo Goo Dolls at the amp this summer. Best concert I ever saw, was probably Matchbox 20, Although Gavin Degraw was pretty awesome too, and that was back when I didn’t know any of his songs. I’d love a date night with my husband as, I’m due to have a baby in 5 weeks!

  6. The last musical performance I saw was Queensryche with my husband. They came to the AMP last fall, and it was great, because that was the first concert that we went to together (20 years ago)! Ahhh, memory lane…

  7. I remember seeing Chris Isaac in SF a long time ago.Memory Lane… My last concert here? Saw lots of smaller acts at the WAC, all were wonderful.

  8. Last concert was Big Smith at George’s…the last BIG concert was probably the Wallflowers way back in 1998!

  9. The last time I saw a musician in concert was NSYNC…which was a very long time ago 🙂

  10. the last concert was Gary Allen last year or the year before at the AMP… definitely ready to go see another concert!!

  11. Ok, loving the others with concerts frim the 80s!! Woohoo! First concert I went to was Journey–even have “Don’t Stop Believin'” as my ringtone. Scary. Last concert was Keb Mo at the WAC. Awesome!

  12. I saw the Goo Goo Dolls this summer at the amp! I love them! I have never been to a concert at the Walton Arts Center and would love this!

  13. Seriously? I don’t think I even remember the last time I attended a concert! Was it KISS? Lucinda Williams? It’s pitiful, I know.

  14. I saw Chris Allen at the Razorback game this weekend. The last actual concert I attended was John Mayer back in 2006!

  15. WOW I was a the Clifornia Jam way way back in 1976 I think. Guess we dont get out that much

  16. Let’s see, I saw Ryan Adams in the spring of this year in Tulsa and he was incredible, but there were some really drunk guys in front of where we were sitting and they ended up throwing up on their feet before the end of the concert. Kinda tainted the experience!

  17. Just saw Chris Young and Rascal Flatts in Tulsa at the end of July! They were awesome!!! Can’t wait for Chris Young to perform at the Mercy Charity Ball in December.

  18. The last concert I went to was Bret Michaels at the AMP, but my hubby and I could really use the night out together. He has been working his booty off lately, while we have both been running to get the kids to their various activities.

  19. my daughter sent your web site to me and has great information for folks to read and gain knowledge

  20. The best concert I ever saw was Bush at Barton Coliseum in Little Rock in 1997. They were (and still are!) one of my all-time favorite bands and when Gavin Rossdale sang “Glycerine” a cappella, I was in heaven!

  21. I just saw Bret Michaels in concert on 9/16 at the AMP.
    Would love to see Chris Isaak!

  22. Last concert and one of my all-time favs was Black Eyed Peas earlier this year. So freakin’ awesome!! Would love to see Chris Isaak with my best friend!!

  23. Okay, the last time I went to a concert was July 23, 1998, in Little Rock. The night I met my husband. I still have the ticket stub somewhere…who knew the B-52’s and the Pretenders would mean so much to me? ha

  24. I don’t think that I have a favorite…I just love concerts! Billy Squire, Foreigner, Ted Nugent, Rod Stewart, REO Speedwagon to name a few!

  25. The last concert I saw was the Bare Naked Ladies in Cleveland, OH back in 1998. But my favorite concert I ever went to was the B52’s…small venue, very intimate and they ROCKED IT HARD!

  26. The last time I saw a concert was about 10 years ago, at Powerhouse Seafood. The Temptations were in town. It was a pretty good concert, but I’ve never been to a concert at Walton Arts Center and would love to go. Thanks for the chance.

  27. My favorite concert ever was Bonnie Raitt at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.

  28. I would love to win this! We recently (9-17) welcomed a new baby girl into our family, My birthday is 10/3, and we could use this outing!!

  29. I saw Kris Allen at Georges a few weeks ago with the girls. Would love to see this show with the Hubby!

  30. Wow–it has been a LONG time since I last saw a musician! My husband and I love music but with two crazy kids, we have had NO time! I guess that is evidenced by the fact that our last concert was Britany Spears!

  31. Hmmm… don’t remember the last concert I attended. My husband and I are big Chris Isaak fans. We’d love to have the chance to see him live.

  32. Chris Young. This was actually a Rascal Flatts concert and Chris Young was one of the opening acts, but I am a huge Chris Young fan. HUGE!! So I ran around telling everyone about the Chris Young concert I was going to attend. All of my friends had to Google him to find out who he is, but they know now.

  33. The last time I went to a concert was 2 summers ago. I went with my friend Haley to see Kenny Chesney in Little Rock. It was so much fun. We both had a blast. Both of us have families and we needed a small break. What a good time.

  34. I don’t want to think about when the last time was that I saw a musician that wasn’t geared for kids, although Dan Zanes’ concerts for kids rock!

  35. I got to see Lucinda Williams last week at George’s. There’s nothing like Lucinda and nothing like a live show. Fayetteville gets some great artists, like Chris Isaak, and I’d love to see him live!

  36. The last concert was a kids concert Dan Zanes at the Botanical Gardens. I need a night out!

  37. Just saw Bret Michaels at the AMP, and it was a great show! With two kids I don’t get out much in the evening, and this was a girlfriend occasion with memories that I will cherish forever.

  38. The last concert that I went to was James Taylor, with my boyfriend, who has, as of today, been my husband of 19 years. Although we have had dates since then, a concert, would be fantastic.

  39. I have not been to a concert in a looong time, but I would love to see Chris Isaak. I saw him in a small club in San Francisco in about 1987 when he was relatively unknown. I can still remember that beautiful haunting voice and have loved hearing him ever since!

  40. My favorite concert of all time was seeing U2 at Madison Square Garden in NYC in 2005. It was awesome!

  41. We saw Ryan Adams in Tulsa in February 2009. Our concert days are unfortunately kind of limited now since our first baby was born 4 months ago. We used to go to shows all the time!!

  42. The last musical performance I saw was some wonderful ladies at a great jazz club in Kansas City, MO right around New Year’s. It was a great night with standing room only.

  43. I saw Kenny G about 2 weeks ago at Walton Arts Center and saw Reba and George in concert in Tulsa back in February. 2 best concerts I have ever been to!!

  44. Sadly, the last concert I went to was when I was pregnant with my now 9 y/o son. We actually saw two that Summer- I think both were in Little Rock (where we lived at the time). We saw George Strait and friends, and we saw Shania Twain. As a teenager I used to go to many concerts- but hubs said he didn’t really see the point of going to concerts? He’s a weirdo maybe… I LOVED them!!

  45. My favorite concert would probably have to be Dan Zanes and his band who played at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks a few months ago. Rockin’ music and family friendly to boot!

  46. The last concert I saw was the Indigo Girls with my BFF this past summer! We had a wonderful girls night out while our husbands watched the children. I would LOVE to win this concert and dinner because my husband has never been to a concert in his life and has always wanted to go to one. It would be a very fun, romantic night and we both love Chris Issac!

  47. I have only been to one concert and it was more than a decade ago! It wasn’t my kind of music, either. I went with friends. Chris Isaak, on the other hand, is one of my favorite singers of all time!

  48. The last BIG concert I saw was when I was 12, my best friend and I got to see Michael Jackson!! It was awesome!!
