I took my boys to the Hi-5! concert and it was so fun and colourful. They loved it!

My mum and I took my daughter, 18 months at the time, to see The Fairies. It was her first live concert and she absolutely loved it. Quite the little groover in her fairy costume standing in the aisle dancing along to the show!  eexcite.gif

This is going to sound so sad, but the best concert that I have seen before and after kids is The Wiggles - I have never sung along to so many songs and been so involved in a concert!  Oh and my kids loved it too.....

In 2004, I took my DD1 and DS to see a Play School concert when they were 3 and 1 respectively.    I couldn't believe my eyes to see Bonita there!! She was fantastic - a bit grayer but still energetic and the highlight of the show.

The kids were enthralled from the beginning to the end - best 45 minutes ever!

Thanks for reading,
Belinda

I took my special needs girl Lauren to see the Wiggles in December.  Despite having 2 seizures prior to getting there she had a great time.  We will be meeting the Wiggles on Monday through Make A Wish.  No matter how sick she is she just loves them

I have yet to take DD to a concert; however, we are all set to see Play School LIVE in our suburb on May 24.  Quite exciting!  Prior to bub, too many good ones to remember, but Glastonbury '99 rings a bell, even with the flooded fields (aren't they always!?).

When I was 12 My Dad took me to see Queen in concert..He had on a double breasted suite and a large unberella that he used like a cain leaning on it and bopping up and down like an englishman.  It was so funny to see Dad like that he is so conservative but loved Queen. I think if we went to see La Lah that my daughter would see my as I saw my dad... tongue.gif

I took my daughter to her first Wiggles concert last December. During one of the quieter songs, they turned down the lights and asked the kids to hold up and wave their parents' mobile phones like stars in the sky. It was beautiful!

My 2 yr old daughter loved the Playschool concert in Orange until George who was dressed up as Polly had a pretend quarrel with Sooki in 'Polly put the kettle on', she got frightened and couldn't watch any more. biggrin.gif

For me it would be my Dad & I going to see Pearl Jam together! He is such a cool Dad and he wanted to go more then I did. And we didn't just sit there, we jumped and danced and had the best night. One I will remember forever.

Nothing is better than visit to a Wiggles concert. Upbeat and full of energy not only do my kids enjjoy the atmosphere but I too walk away feeling happy and care free.

It would have to P!NK's Funhouse Sydney tour. The amount of energy and fitness that women has is amazing! If only I had as much as energy as her and not to mention those abs! A fun, colourful, theatrical experience!

We took our boys to see Dorothy. One kept yelling "We have roses. When you come get them?". Another kept falling through his seat and getting stuck. The baby decided to 'expose' me. We all loved it of course but also felt like a strong drink afterwards!

I won tickets to a Hi-5 concert and now my 2 year old daughter is hooked. Since then we have purchased their DVD's which we watch all the time. Just today she asked so nicely for a pair of Hi-5 boots and once she got home and put them on I couldn't get her to take them off!  We love to sing and dance any time music is on the TV or radio.

Honestly, I haven't been to a concert in over  rolleyes.gif  10 years, and have yet to take my 18 month-old to one.  However my best experience would have to be "The Main Event" - John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John and Anthony Warlow, at least 10 years ago now, but absolutely brilliant!

Rod Stewart! My fathers favourite till he passed away. The next time Rod was in Sydney the whole family went along, the 8 of us sang at the top of our lungs although we'd never admitted it we all loved Rod too! A great way to remember our Dad.

My first ever concert was Abba at the Sydney Myer Music Bowl Melbourne. I was still at Primary School, had never seen so many people in one place or heard anything so loud! I sat like a stunned mullet for the whole show and talked about it for months after!

ABC Concert outside their studios in Sydney. The crowd was amazing and all the kids and parents were dancing and singing together, a fun day was had by all including my then 2 1/2 yr old who was taken up on stage by Jai from play school.

MY favourite concert was Sarah McLachlan! I have LOVED her since I was a child, and we had such a great time listening to our favourite songs. I have booked tickets for our very first Play School concert in July - and I cannot wait to see their reaction!

our son william loves to watch his mum and dad perform in our own 'big live bands' on a regular basis. Wiliam also loves to play his instruments and we always have music in some form happening.

3 of my fav pics: at 'festival of the sun' an all day music fest, playing dad's Tuba and and playing the 'sax' in the jazz band (little dude in red)

Taking my 1 & 2 yr old to see playschool in concert. Noah had an absolute ball and was in amazement the whole time and was dancing around to all the songs. Blake was just wiggling away to the music (they both love to dance)

My mum loves Jimmy Barnes, so because she played it constantly when I was young, I grew up loving it with her.  When i was about 15 she was dating a man who was close friends with Jimmy Barnes, and he got us front-row seats to a Cold Chisel concert at Horden Pavillion, it was awesome! At the end of the show Barnesy even came over and gave us both a hug!
