Mother’s Day-Approved Gifts: Shows, Concerts & Events

Mother’s Day-Approved Gifts: Shows, Concerts & Events

Remember the time you begged Mom to let you see your favorite band perform? And—after some room-cleaning or chore negotiations—she finally agreed? She even bought the tickets, played chauffeur and enjoyed music that wasn’t quite her style—all so you and your friends could have the best night ever.

Since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, why not surprise mom with tickets to see a show, event or concert that she’d go crazy for? Take a look at the reviews below to see the events moms raved about the most on Give her a gift that’s “way, way better than a brunch!” (unless, of course, you’re taking her to a House of Blues Gospel Brunch—now that’s an experience mom won’t want to miss.)
