It was about a week before we left for the Dominican Republic in February 2015 that I stumbled upon the news that Ringo Starr was performing at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, not far from the resort we’d be at.
After some quick discussion, I ended up buying tickets for my parents, Shea and I while the kids would stay behind with Shea’s parents.
It was a highlight of my life.
Because of that, I now make a habit of checking concert listings for any place we’re visiting just in case there’s something cool happening.
Although he’s no Ringo Starr ;-), I’m a fan of Dave Matthews so it was cool to see he’s doing a series of concerts on the beach at the Barcelo Maya Resort with frequent collaborator, Tim Reynolds, while we’re in Mexico.
Not as cool, it appears these concerts are limited to guests at one of five select resorts so we couldn’t get tickets even if we wanted to. (Plus they’re already sold out anyhow.)
Anyhow, here’s a clip of Dave & Tim playing one of my favourite songs…
