If you love music but have never been to a concert before, you should probably consider attending one. Yes, you can listen to music digitally and enjoy the crisp sound quality of your speakers or earphones, but what you don’t get from that is the experience, the atmosphere, the sense of occasion, the buzz.
Going to a music concert is something you won’t forget. It creates a bookmark in your life, and you’ll benefit from it in many ways.
Meeting New People
In this age of digital devices and social media, it’s easy to live life vicariously—through the eyes and actions of others—but that can lead to a lonely existence. One great thing about going to a music concert is unity. You’ll be mingling with like-minded people. Maybe you’ll even go crazy with them when your favorite singer enters the stage. As well as meeting new people from far and wide, a music concert is the ideal way to enjoy a night out with friends.
“You’ll experience the anticipation, the excitement of traveling to the venue, and once you’re there you’ll soak up the ambiance that only live music creates.”
If you go to a big music festival with many stages and acts, you’ll also be able to switch between the bands you watch and try out some new sounds. Like travel, music events have a way of broadening the mind.
Whatever your reasons for avoiding music concerts in the past (e.g. anxiety, shyness, stress), you should know that there are real, proven health benefits linked with live music events. Even if you’re not the wild, crowd-surfing type, your sense of wellbeing may improve.
A medical study by the Imperial College in London showed that levels of cortisol and other stress hormones decreased in concert-goers after an event. Music is also thought to have an analgesic effect on pain, so it can help get people through illness and bodily discomfort.
Sometimes, a music concert might be the zenith that tops many years of following the same artist. It can be a final release that helps you reboot and get life into perspective. For many people, live music is a source of healing.
Long after the encore is over and the stage is taken down, the memory of a music concert will stay with you. You’ll remember things your favorite artist said and did. You’ll recall little moments you shared with friends.
For music lovers, there are artists that can define a part of their life. Seize any chance you can to see your favorite artist perform live. The memories you create will become a part of you, and you’ll be sure to cherish them for a long time.
