5 Reasons Why You Should Go To A Concert Alone At Least Once In Your Life

By  January 21, 2016

Most of us have gone through the embarrassing (and quite troublesome) experience of finding company for a concert we really want to attend. At this point of time, we realize that the real “problem” is not our friends, but the lack thereof. Let’s say even if you do have friends who listen to the same band, concerts might not exactly be their cup of tea. That’s where the dilemma comes in, or so we thought.

Going to a concert by yourself might sound daunting. I spent weeks deciding whether I should even go to that one concert last year, afraid of what people in groups would think of me. But all the worries were unfounded, as I ended up having one of the best nights of my life.

If you’re still deep in thought, here’s the sign you’ve been waiting for!

Here are 5 reasons why you should go to that concert alone:

 

1.     You’ll Get A New Perspective

Being alone makes you more observant and it will make you notice small details you wouldn’t have caught otherwise – like when that girl gives you a funny face when you hand her the water bottle the rest of the crowd all shared or how that guy in front you smiles back to his friend when the band plays their favorite song. Not only will you get to see your favorite band live, but you’ll also learn about how strangers’ reactions are different from your own. These memories, when compiled together, turn out to be unforgettable.

 

2.    You'll Meet People With Similar Music Taste

Forget mindless chatter when you’re in line for a few hours at a concert, because you’ll definitely end up sparking a passionate conversation with that person next to you. Talking about a common interest is a great way to make friends, and you might even end up going to the next concert together.

 

3.     You’ll Appreciate The Music More

I guess one thing you’ll get from enjoying your own company, aside from freedom, is focus. You don’t have to worry about whether your friends are actually having fun. You don’t even have to suppress any of your emotions when a song triggers you. Just close your eyes, and trust me, you’ll feel as though you’re floating. Enjoy the emotional experience, mate. You’ll be glad you went alone, as you smile to yourself in the train on the way home.

 

4.     You Can Scream And Move Around Without Any Worries

If you’re still hesitant about going to that concert, I’ll assure you that none of the people from the crowd care about you moving your spot, letting out that devouring scream, or dancing like a lunatic. You’ll have more freedom to “live in the moment.” It’s almost as though you’re just dancing in your room, except this time, with a bunch of strangers and the music is playing live.

 

5.     It Will Be One Of The Best Nights Of Your Life

Erase all the what-ifs. Life is too short to worry about embarrassing yourself in a crowd of strangers. What’s important is feeling euphoric and getting to see your favorite band play live after years of just listening to them on your iPod. Once you’ve tried it, you won’t be begging people to go with you anymore and you’ll have the independence to enjoy the music on your own.
