I’ve been to many shows over the years, enjoying them as a fan and a reporter. Last week was a bit of both when I attended my first concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for New York radio station 94.7 NashFM’s NashBash.
When I got to the venue with my friend, we were both given photo passes so I hung out near the photo pit at the very front of the stage for most of the night while she took photos. It was the closest I’ve been during a major show at such a big venue and I enjoyed every second of it. I never imagined my job would take me up close and backstage at a radio station’s concert but I often dreamed about it as a kid. Here’s headliner Cole Swindell performing at the beginning of his set.
