Many musicians remember a certain song or lyric that has helped them along their journey and had an impact on their life, leading them to where they are today. Musicians remember and know what it’s like to be a fan – that feeling of how much a band, song, and lyric can mean to us.
Here are a few musicians and celebrities whose Fan Portraits we have captured at the concerts:
