My 21 Most Body & Mind Twisting Concerts Of 2016…

liveblglo

I saw 136 artists in action this year, from performances in small bars to a couple of too crowded festivals, from many cool club gigs to mid-range venue shows. My mind is truly hooked to life music for years now, it helps me staying healthy and crazy at the same time – a much needed balance on this troubled planet – and it certainly helps to get away from daily, disturbing worries and create some thrilling time instead. Gripping concerts elevate me, vitalize me and energize me in several ways. Oops, before getting too philosophical here are the 21 most outstanding WHAM BLOODY BAM fireworks (in chronological order)
