In this First Concert Ever segment, the pop artist, EBEN, talks about his first concert ever. You can check out the feature, after the break.
This may not be the first concert I’ve been to but it was for sure my favorite, and the only one worth talking about. It’s kind of funny how it all happened. I got a call from my mentor DJReflex, and he said he was opening up for Anderson .Paak in the next hour. Anderson .Paak is one of my favorite artists ever so I was like, “Hell yeah, I’ll come!” I hopped in the shower for a second, threw on some clothes, and sped right to the Palladium where he had the show. It was really cool when I got there because I got to skip the line and walk right in, which never happens to me so that was exciting. After Reflex finished his set and killed it, Anderson came on stage and the place went crazy. He has this one song called “Drugs” that is his trap banger, and he dropped it like 2 minutes into the set. The whole place went nuts. I was jumping and screaming so loud – it was one of the best nights of my life. I had goosebumps the whole time. To top it off, he brought out Stevie Wonder. STEVIE WONDER. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! Growing up, my mom and I listened to him all the time. He is a huge musical inspiration to me. On top of that, he also did a song with Busta Rhymes! I had no idea I would be seeing so many music legends in one night. For being a last minute show, it was the greatest night of my life. I will remember that show forever.
