We all know that at the start of this year, I created a list of three groups/artists that I would travel to see if they came to the US in 2019. One of those popped up and I’m going to Chicago in two weeks to see IMFACT. I’m stoked. But soon after I got those tickets, Pentagon announced a US tour in early September. It was emotionally challenging to say no to that one as they are a group that I find myself loving even when I’m not loving them. But I was going to be on vacay with the family so there was no way it would work anyway. Chicago is the best place for me to see shows right now for various reasons.
We rescheduled vacation.
It’s working out. YAY!
Then The Rose announced a tour. They’ll be in Chicago the same night as Pentagon. THE SAME NIGHT.
THE ROSE IS THE OTHER GROUP I WOULD BREAK MY THREE GROUP RULE FOR.
How am I going to choose between them? How does one choose between these two uniquely different and wonderful opportunities? The start times are the same so I can’t even do the old ‘I’ll do half of one and then bop over for the end of the one that starts later.’
Woosung from the Rose is making it even more difficult. He released his first solo mini this past week and completely solidified my love of him and his music and his message. His ‘American’ is showing with his strong LGBTQ and body positivity messages, his voice is stunning (as it always is), and he looks gooooorgeous with his tiny, lithe frame and voluminous bowl cut. It’s all super fabulous.
How will I decide??
