We all have that one person we would kill to see in concert. Whether that be John Mayer, Drake, or Tim McGraw. One of the most recent and most popular music sensations is Austin Richard Post, better known as Post Malone. The young rapper is most commonly known for his debut single “White Iverson” that came out in 2015. Ever since, he has released singles and albums that have repeatedly made it on the top charts and the topic of conversation for teens. Two of our very own had the opportunity to go see the talented singer/songwriter in concert.

Junior Anna Caroline Gregg made her way down to Dallas, Texas with her best friend Claire Gillaspy, senior, for an unforgettable Post Malone concert. Gregg surprised Claire for her 17th birthday by writing several puns in a journal with song references and concert tickets waiting for her at the end. They drove down on June 14th, 2018 with Gregg’s parents, introducing Post Malone’s music to her dad. Let’s just say he wasn’t the biggest fan, unlike his daughter.

“Once we got there, we were super pumped but also a little scared since it was just the two of us going to the concert.” Gregg said. The opening act was 21 Savage, “but we’re not really fans of him.” But then, it was time for the main act and everyone was on their toes, waiting for the rockstar to appear. Unlike other artists, Post Malone just casually walked on stage. No grand opening, no spotlight, and no crazy entrance. When asked how she felt when Post came on stage, Gregg said “he just walked on so casually and I screamed so loudly.” He performed his normal, but well-liked, songs such as Rockstar and Congratulations but also sang songs from his new album which was unexpected. “My expectations were definitely exceeded and I would most definitely go again if I could!” – Anna Caroline Gregg
