Some people have reservations about attending concerts because they deem the event “too loud and crowded”. Well, noise and people are a big part of concerts.
These are the very elements that inject fun into concerts. If noise, loud music, and throngs of people are not your thing, then you should probably avoid going to concerts.
On the other hand, if watching live performances by your favorite artists, listening to music, singing along, dancing, and just simply having fun at the company of strangers is something you enjoy, then well and good.
Did you know, though, that you could actually make your concert experience even more enjoyable? Following are some tips on how you can achieve that.
Comfort above All Else
Before going to a concert, you need to anticipate what type of atmosphere will permeate the venue. For instance, if you were going to a Maroon 5 concert, it would undoubtedly be filled to the rafters.
The same goes for concerts of other popular artists. Rather than collapse on the floor because of too much heat, wear something comfortable. A simple shirt and a clean pair of jeans would do.
Use discernment in determining what type of clothes to wear. Moreover, wear sneakers or comfortable footwear.
Don’t Get Drunk
Some people, especially if they’re going to a concert with friends, opt to have dinner or drink a few rounds first.
If you know quite well that you can’t hold your liquor, avoid drinking before the concert or refrain from buying one if they are being served at the venue. The last thing you want is to piss other concertgoers off with your rowdy behavior.
Besides, having a full bladder would require you to take frequent bathroom breaks. You won’t enjoy the concert if you spend more time relieving yourself.
You notice a lull probably because the band is performing a slow song. When that happens, simply enjoy the music.
Don’t use that stretch of time to narrate a funny observation to your friend and take his attention away from the performance. Basic concert etiquette will keep you from talking over the music.
Everyone paid for their tickets; give them the respect due them by letting them enjoy the performances.
It’s in the Pits
You’ll enjoy the concert more if you position yourself at the pit. The pit is the closest section to the stage, and this is where all the fun happens especially during rock or metal concerts.
This is the perfect place to let go of your inhibitions and simply have fun. Dance, sing along, jump – it’s the mosh pit, and you’re entitled to get crazy!
Follow these four tips, and you’re sure to have an enjoyable and memorable time in your next concert.
