Amazing Concert Experience: Matthew West Live Forever Tour

I received no product or compensation for this post.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.
Because our kids are older, I opted not to go for Easter baskets this year and instead purchased tickets to attend the Matthew West Live Forever Tour concert at a local indoor venue.  So, last Friday night we spent an amazing three hours listening to music from Mr. Talkbox, Colton Dixon, and Matthew West.  It was absolutely worth every penny and every minute.  And, although we bought general admission tickets, we had rather good seats.

I'd previously not heard of Mr. Talkbox but am a fan after hearing him on stage Friday night.  He uses a "talking contraption" with his music which looks like a long tube coming from a keyboard.  I was a little weirded out with that but loved how he played and pumped up the audience.

Colton Dixon was on for the second set.  Again, I had no idea who he was before the night of the concert.  Interestingly enough, he had previously auditioned on American Idol before becoming a full-on Christian musician. 
Matthew West, also a Christian musician, was on for the last leg of the concert.  He had the audience captivated for two hours.  I can't say I've been to a whole lot of concerts in my life, but I'd definitely go to this one again.  And again.  And again.  The music was spellbinding, the atmosphere was amped up, and the stories behind the songs were inspiring.

What's the best concert you've ever attended?  Are you familiar with Mr. Talkbox, Colton Dixon, or Matthew West?
