5 Benefits of Attending a Concert

5 Benefits of Attending a Concert

Seeing your favorite band in a live setting can be an exciting and exhilarating thing, but unfortunately, concert tickets are typically expensive. When you add in service charges, parking fees and costs for food onto the price of your ticket, you may be looking at spending a large chunk of money for the experience. There are more reasons than just having a good time why attending a concert can be good for you; if you’re debating whether or not to purchase a ticket to that concert that you are dying to see, consider the following reasons why attending a concert can actually be good for you.

1. You’ll Burn Calories

Most concerts involve a lot of standing, jumping and dancing which can help you to burn calories that you would otherwise hold onto. Attending a concert may not be the most direct form of exercise, but it’s definitely better than sitting on the couch watching TV. Even the walk from the parking lot to the venue can burn more calories than you would normally burn in an evening, so if you enjoy dancing and singing along to music, this is a great way to burn some calories and get your heart rate going while you’re enjoying your favorite music.

2. Raise Your Spirits

Everyone can use a little extra boost to his or her spirits during the day. Attending a concert is typically a fun activity, and it can help to boost your emotions throughout the entire day, if not longer—it’s common for people to feel a lightness of spirit for several days after attending a concert. The excitement of purchasing a ticket, preparing for the show, attending with friends, and savoring the memories can provide happy memories and feelings for several weeks at a time. The expense is well worth the positive experience you will have when you hear your favorite band play live.

3. Get Involved

You don’t have to go to a large venue to experience the fun of a live concert: many communities offer live music as a way for people to socialize and visit in a safe setting. Local bands may play live in parks or venues, and attending these shows gives you a chance to get out, meet new people, and get more involved in your community. You also have a chance to support local entertainers and help them get their careers off the ground when you attend these smaller events. These concerts are a great way to show that you support your community. and that you are eager to get involved.

4. Discover New Sounds

Most bands will offer an opening act or two to get the crowd excited and on their feet. These acts may be bands or individuals you have never heard of. Attending a concert gives you a chance to experience their music live and discover new sounds that you didn’t know you liked. For most people, music has a huge impact on mood, and finding music you love helps to improve your mood. And what if that band you see live turns out to be incredibly popular, and you can say you saw them as an opening act?

5. Safe Outing

If you make smart choices and stay where you’re supposed to be, a concert is a great opportunity to be surrounded by people in a safe area. Though concerts are notorious for drugs and alcohol, you make smart choices and avoid these situations and simply relax and have a good time surrounded by thousands of people who are doing the same thing. A concert is a great way to get out of the house and stay safe while you are attending a large event, but remember—it’s up to you to make the choice to stay away from the things that are dangerous.  If you do this, you are almost guaranteed to have a positive experience at your concert.

If you are still debating whether or not to purchase a ticket that may seem like a large expense, consider the alternative. You can either go to the concert and enjoy all the things listed above, or you can spend another night at home watching television, and nickel and dime the money away on something you won’t remember.  Attending a concert is a great way to invest your money in memories that you will carry with you forever.
