On December 9th, 2015 I got to witness the world’s # 1 artist & the phenom known as The Weeknd aka Abel as i like to call him on his ” The Madness Tour ” stop in Los Angeles. First & foremost like me state this, i am not a new fan i did nit jump on the band wagon from his lastest album ” The Beauty behind the madness ” which is off the hook, I was rocking with him since his 1st mixtape ” House of Ballons ” lol day 1 fan here !!
I talked about this concert so much for months i couldnt contain my excitement that my friends & family could not wait for the day to come so i would finally shut up about it lol. I warned everyone going with me in advance i would be that annoying screaming fan & would be singing all his songs loud haha. I was curious on the route he would go with so many songs to choose from past & present. The Weeknd finally made his way to the stage & ” Real life (love that song by the way!!) ” blasted so loud off the speakers it shook the arena… followed by every other song off the ” The beauty behind the madness ” album. It felt like this awesome live album listening party ! What are your favorite songs off the album? I can’t get enough of ” Tell your friends, Can’t feel my face, Often, Angel & Darkest Times “.
Abel did not forget about the Day 1 fans who he acknowelged many times during the show, in between the new songs he also performed some of the classics & our favorites such as ” High for this (my favorite !!) , Crew Love, King of the Fall, The Morning, House of Ballons- Glass table girls “, etc.
” The Hills ” was the finale closing song of the night, a song he wrote describing how he felt living in the Hollywood aka the hills so it was only fitting being in LA that he send his biggest fans off with the song he wrote specifically for that city, there’s no where in the world like Cali baby ! Abel has come along way from his mix tapes days to platinum selling albums, world tour & numerous music awards.. 2015 was without a doubt the year of XO crew !!
I know this post is late & well after the concert, i admit i got busy with the holidays & a long overdue vacation but i knew i had responsibility to myself & this blog idea of mine to continue to see it through no matter how many things come up. The saying ” better late then never ” rightfully applies to this. Thanks for rockin with me still & understanding !
Love Kaly Sinatra
Little miss Ariana Grande with her cute self has become a huge powerhouse in the music world with her tremendous voice! She may be tiny but this girl can sang!!! I have really become a big fan of hers this year. I was intrigued to see her & once i found out she was bringing papi chulo Prince Royce with her on tour i was even more excited to go!
With her signature ponytail & long hair Ariana strutted down the stairs to her stage ready to blow her fans away singing all her famous hits such as Break free, Love me harder, The way, Problem,etc… The only 1 she didn’t sing was one last time 1 of my favorites so i was sort of bummed lol but she did sing Bang bang.. a feature song Ariana shares with Jesse J & Nicki Minaj that got every single person out of their seat to dance! I love that song by the way so i forgive her lol. I was not expecting her to be such a good performer for being so young, i was impressed!!
I took advantage of Live Nation Concert cash that offered $15 off any ticket, i opted for lawn seat that was $30 so in the end i only paid $15. The Sleep train amphitheater in San Diego sometimes offer seat upgrades for a small cost or free depending on the show attendance, i was able to upgrade my little ol lawn seat to a lower bottom level seat area that normally cost $100 for free!!! Talk about hook up yo!!
Ariana apparently loves wearing ears whether its cat or bunny ones, i was surround by little girls to grown women wearing them. I was mad i did not know this prior because i sure would have brought some from home, i felt left out but i refused to buy them there for $25 lol. I predict that Ariana Grande not only has a bright future ahead of her but she will make history by having 1 of the greatest music career & legacy as she gets older. I can only hope she stays as sweet & humble because it’s truly a quality i admire in her.
Thank you again for allowing to me share yet another 1 of my concert adventures with you. Its been a blast this summer & there many more to go !!
Love, Kaly Sinatra
What do you get when you put 1 of the biggest pop stars in the world & a summer night in 1 of America’s finest cities together…. a stop on Taylor Swift’s The 1989 World Tour!! The excitement i had for this concert can not be described lol it’s all i talked about for weeks . I am a huge fan of my beloved Tay Tay !! The 1989 album is by far 1 of her best & possibly the biggest of her career to date. Do you have it? What’s your favorite song?
An ordinary concert venue simply would not do for Taylor to perform in… She sold out the entire San Diego Petco Park baseball Stadium !!! Something that has only been done by very few artists i might add! There was no way i was missing this concert, even if i had to go alone i vowed… which i did end up doing by the way lol. Ticket availability was difficult, also prices for them were slightly on the higher end and not everyone shared the same YOLO (you only live once) attitude like me lol !!
I will not lie & say when Taylor’s concert set started i wasn’t jumping up & down screaming along with the teenage girls around me lol. She opened up the show with ” Welcome to New York” from the 1989 album, a fun catchy beat that got you the whole stadium out of their seat to dance. We all had been given these glow in the dark bracelets that changed colors to the songs & danced around when ever we did, the entire stadium looked beautiful in the dark night.
If you have been a fan of Taylor Swift since the beginning you remember all the songs that started off her career.. She made sure that she reminded you of these songs & why you fell in love with her. I remember the sweet blond curly hair girl with her guitar singing songs ” Tear drops on my guitar ” & ” Love Story ” & ” You belong with me ” 3 of my favorite songs from her by the way!! I was so happy to finally get to sing them along with her in person lol yes in my mind i was performing with Tay Tay, don’t judge me lol.
If you have been following Taylor’s tour or social media you know that almost every city she has performed in there have been surprise guests… from Justin Timberlake to Ellen Degeneres. Naturally we all wondered if she would bring anyone here… the answer was hell yes!! First special guest hailed straight from Jamaica & currently has the of the top songs in the country.. OMI !! He performed everyone’s favorite summer song ” Cheerleader ” ! And the final 2nd surprise guest was none other than Avril Levigne who sang her infamous hit ” Complicated ” !! The entire stadium was in complete pandemonium, singing & cheering so loudly!
Most of the entire 1989 album was performed.. all the hits such as Blank Space, Out of the Woods, Style, Wildest dreams, etc & of course Bad Blood !!
Taylor Swift has always been America’s young sweetheart but I am proud to see that she has grown up & evolved not only as artist but as a person to now be known as America’s Classy Bad Ass lol. I love you Tay Tay !! Please call me so we can hang out lol im serious!
Thank you again for stopping by and allowing me to share my most anticipated & favorite concert of the year !! It was the best experience ever!
Love, Kaly Sinatra
One of my favorite things to do in the summer is going to concerts, those are the best good times you can ever have ! I was excited for Nicki Minaj’s Pink Print Tour, she has been dominating the airwaves & music charts lately coming out with hit after hit. She brought a few friends with her on this tour.. Tinashe, Meek Mill (boo team drake all day lol jk) & Rae Sremmurd who by far had the crowd the most hyped ” no flex zone ” baby lol.
Nicki came out with a vengeance when her set started, opening up with 1 of her biggest & best songs this year ” Feeling Myself ” featuring the queen bee herself my idol Beyonce lol. The whole place erupted with excitement & sang every word, myself included! It was a complete party from that point lol if you weren’t singing or in my case rapping lol you definitely were dancing your ass off & in some cases both, again me lol.
All your favorites songs new & old from/featuring Nicki Minaj proceeded next.. some of my favorites were Bang Bang, Super Bass, Moment 4 life, Anaconda, Starships, Truffle butter, Bedrock, Pound the alarm Flawless remix, & All i do is win remix… like i said Nicki Minaj came to turn up in San Diego.
Nicki Minaj is without a doubt 1 of the best female rappers in the world, she has taken the world by storm & claimed her throne. Watching her transition from dressing in unique costumes & dramatic color hair to a sexy strong bad bitch as she says has been great, many artists don’t mature and show growth while still staying true to their music.
The final song of the tour was ” The night is still young “, perfect fit to close out a great time.. Margaritas, Good friends, Summer nights & Nicki Minaj the perfect combination. It gets my pink print stamp of approval !
Thank you again for coming back & remember as Nicki Minaj says .. The Night is still young so go out there & sing, dance, and live !
Love, Kaly Sinatra
“All I do is win win win no matter what! Got money on my mind I can never get enough
And every time I step up in the buildin’ Everybody hands go UP!! And they stay there
And they say yeah And they stay there, Up down, Up down, Up down ‘Cause all I do is win win win!! And if you goin’ in put your hands in the air Make ’em stay there“!! I love classic lines like this that get you hyped whenever you hear it, like it’s a celebration & that’s exactly what this is for me!! I can’t think of a better way to open up this introduction by singing because it’s exactly what I would do in person lol. So without further delay… Welcome to The Kaly Sinatra Way!!..

My friends call me Em, & I’m a Kalyfornia girl, yes that’s how I spell it I like to be difficult lol. I’m really down to earth, corny, optimistic, intelligent but tougher than a lion; I like to think of myself as a CLASSY BAD ASS lol. I love music but even more I love going to concerts & singing/dancing to my favorite artists and songs. It is always a party in my section lol whether I’m there with people or solo. I go to so many in a year that people started calling me The Concert Queen, it’s almost a guarantee that I already have tickets to a show even before they go on sale… You ain’t about that presale code life lol.
