August is the best month of the year, hands down. It’s the end of summer, it’s my birthday month and there are always fabulous concerts to go to in August. I think some artists know that their music is meant to be listened to in the summer. I’m excited to be taking a short August road trip up to see my mom, Jill, and my stepdad, Larry, and catching a couple of great concerts while I’m at it!
You might remember my mom from my post about our trip to the spa earlier this year. She’s truthfully the world’s best mom. She bought us tickets a while back to see Keith Urban at WinStar. I’m glad she did because the show sold out quickly! Returning to the topic of summertime music – I can’t think of anyone I’d rather listen to in the summer! The show is at The Colosseum at WinStar which is an outdoor venue that holds almost 10,000 people. They’re hosting the Professional Bull Riders: Built Ford Tough Series at the Colosseum on September 2 and 3 as well. So cool, right?
My mom and Larry will meet me at WinStar the last weekend in August for the show. They’re bringing their recently remodeled Airstream from Tulsa and staying at the WinStar RV Park. (Aren’t they so cute?) I, however, will be staying at the hotel and enjoying the Resort Pool all weekend.
While my mom and I go to Keith Urban, Larry is planning on spending the evening at the golf course. He wasn’t going to join us for the trip, but when he heard that Steven Tyler & the Loving Mary Band are playing the night before Keith Urban, he immediately volunteered to come and buy us tickets for that show as well. Of course, I won’t turn down tickets to a show, so we’re staying for the full weekend!
We are so excited for our Colosseum weekend! My playlist of summertime favs is playing and I am already daydreaming about seeing Keith and Steven. We’ve been joking that our girls trip for my birthday has turned into an anniversary trip and I’m just the third wheel. I sent them this anniversary-themed blog as a joke, but it was actually helpful and provided some great restaurant and activity suggestions.
I’d love to see you at WinStar in August! If you haven’t bought your tickets for Steven Tyler & the Loving Mary Band or the Professional Bull Riders: Built Ford Tough Series yet, buy them now! It’s going to be amazing.
