Polo G at PromoWest Pavillion


Over the summer, two of my friends and I made the spontaneous decision to buy Polo G tickets just for the fun of it. They were ridiculously cheap and it was an hour and a half away from campus, so why not. On October 8, we finally got to go.


Now keep in mind, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We didn’t know the time of the actual concert and it was in a place that we had never been before and knew nothing about.


Flash forward to as we wait in line for general admission. The venue was small, and we immediately made our way to the t-shirts. I struggled with the fact of seeing the coolest sweatshirt I have ever seen and it being $70. However, my friends and I did not blink an eye and gladly gave the man our credit cards. Granted, we did have to wear them around our waists for the rest of the night, but it was worth it.


As we got there right when the gates opened, we made our way to pretty much the front right up against the gate in absolute awe of how close we were about to be. From 5:30-8 p.m., we waited. Standing in a crowd of people in a small area is never fun, but the patience we were losing outnumbered that fact. Polo G eventually made it to the stage, and we were basically close enough to make direct eye contact.


However, almost as soon as he came out it seemed as though he was done. The concert itself lasted no longer than 30 minutes. There were a good number of songs sung, but they were singing back-to-back, making it go by fast. As short (yet long) as the experience was, I wouldn’t trade our impulsive decision to buy random tickets for ANYTHING!
