With many more concerts to be announced, Kansas City residents continue to wait in excitement for their favorite band to visit.

Junior Cameron Massieon is one of the fans who waits in excitement.

“I’m really excited because it’s going to be really interesting to go to because everybody knows all the songs and they’re going to probably lose their minds,” said Massieon, predicting what the Slipknot (a metal band) concert will be like. “I really like the energy that goes along with concerts, especially in the summer,” said Massieon.

Concerts, summer ones in particular, always have an upbeat, electric atmosphere that a lot of other concerts don’t.

“They play all of the songs that you know and it’s really awesome that you get to be involved with your favorite band,” said Massieon.
