Re: ¡Vamos a ver ________ en directo este verano!
We're going to see the Rolling Stones live this summer!
I was wondering why the name of the "group" requires a personal A here when in one of the examples above it doesn;t:
¿Vais a visitar La Sagrada Familia este sábado?
Are you going to visit La Sagrada Familia this Saturday?
Both are people, so what am I missing here?
When talking about the Rolling Stones we are referring to the people in the band; this is why it requires the "a". The other example is talking about "La Sagrada Familia" which is a famous monument in Barcelona; this is why you don't need the "a" here.
I hope this helps,
That is so funny, I thought it was talking about a family that is called Sagrada. That is the problem with not knowing the geography of a place and its monuments.
Thanks so much!
