Tips for enjoying a live concert
With some great acts headed to South Africa this month (Boys ll Men + Joe) and early next year, here's how to enoy yourself without ending up on YouTube forever.
A concert is more than an event, it’s an experience. This is a chance to get out of your mundane schedule, go out on the town, connect with friends or maybe discover new music for your playlist.
For some, however, the pressure may be too much. Is it possible to just sit back and enjoy the concert? We believe so. In fact, the following tips will help guarantee you enjoy the show.
For music lovers, it’s a dream come true: showing up on a whim, anywhere, anytime. Unfortunately, this could be a recipe for a social disaster. In other words, it’s the type of faux pas that your friends will talk about at cocktails parties for weeks, if not years, to come. To prevent any mistakes, Google the artists, especially if they’re new in town. Is this a head-banging rock concert that calls for leather pants or a sophisticated evening of light jazz? By knowing the genre, you’ll be better able to pick your wear (and your attitude).
Spread the word and make an event of the night. Use the concert as a means of catching up with friends, getting to know other folks in the office or surprising your significant other.
Keep It to a Minimum
For those who love to imbibe, three words: Keep it classy. No one wants to carry you home, and even fewer folks paid money to hear you singing along with the band.
Make sure you have what you need for an evening out. Besides the basics, like your keys, your cell phone, credit cards and comfortable shoes, take along the accessory you use to do what you do.
Really Be Prepared
Listen to the artist(s) album before the show. Google some of the lyrics. Better than knowing about the main act, research the opening acts.
