Swee! There's something special about bringing a child to a concert.
I brought my own nephew to a concert last year, it wasn't his first but it was his first with me. We had such a good time and now have such good memories to look back on.
The epic adventure that was trying to figure out the cheapest way to get to Leuven (Belgium) where it was taking place from his hometown. The exhilaration when we finally managed to buy the cheapest possible ticket, the fun train ride and wandering around Leuven, a pretty interesting city and then going for dinner before the gig.
The way the gig was delayed a couple of hours, due to technical problems is a less fond memory. It meant we missed the last few songs as we had to make sure we got on the last train back on time. We already arrived too late for our connection and we need for a friend to pick us up from the train station at some ungodly hour. I was absolutely wrecked at this time, and my feet were killing me, blistered and sore.
Also, I'd spent a small fortune in concert tickets, trains, meals, snacks and whatever else. Man, having children is expensive!
I also bought a CD for the younger nephew, who was 8 and so was too young to come along.
