7 ways to enjoy a concert
YOU’VE scored a ticket to one of your dream concerts, but suddenly you’re too overwhelmed to even think and have zero idea what to do. Fret not, my friend, because this list will serve as your trusty guide for when the most awaited day comes. Here are seven ways you can fully enjoy your first concert experience aka the best day of your life.
Get a good night’s rest.
Concert day is going to be wild and you might want to re-energize your batteries the night before, especially when you’re flying in just to hear your favorite band or artist play. Hit the sack at the earliest possible time for you to awake the next morning feeling renewed and ready for the concert.
Don’t let your appetite fool you. Eat.
It’s common to lose your appetite on concert day because it cannot be helped to feel extra excited. But what you actually need is food to keep you going for the entire day. Concerts are like whole day affairs, so you’d better stuff your stomach just enough for you to survive the day.
Do away with fancy clothes and wear comfortable ones instead.
Concerts are not fashion shows. You’re there to have the best night of your life, and wearing clothes that don’t make you feel a slight bit comfortable defeats the purpose of why you’re really there in the first place. Sure you want to look good in front of your faves, which you can, but don’t go overboard. Wear your comfiest (yet stylish) clothes, specifically ones that you can freely move around in.
Go with friends or alone and make new acquaintances.
Attending a concert is made more enjoyable when you’re with best buddies. It’s fun when they’re around because everyone can fanboy or fangirl together and make it the most memorable night yet. But don’t worry if you’re going alone though. It may be a whole different experience, but in a way, it’s fulfilling. You can definitely enjoy the concert just as much when you’re with friends, plus you get to meet new ones along the way too.
Watch them with your own eyes and not through your phone screen.
A lot of us are guilty of failing to keep our hands off our phone during a concert, which is bad. No one is restricting you from taking photos and videos, but don’t let it get in the way of your entire concert experience. You can snap and shoot for a bit, but after that, allow yourself to get lost in the music and really watch and hear your faves play on stage. Remember, you paid a whole lot to see them live. Make it worth every peso.
Find a spot with the best view of the stage.
This is applicable for standing ticket holders or at an open ground concert. You would want to find a good spot where you can see the stage clearly or simply stand where there’s a smaller crowd. Either way, as long as you’re comfortable enough and you think you’ve found the spot where you can thoroughly enjoy the concert, then you’re good.
Sing and dance to your heart’s content.
The best part of any concert is when you get to sing and dance to your favorite songs by your favorite band LIVE. It’s definitely a pinch-me-moment when you realize you’re actually there seeing and hearing them with your own eyes and ears and not through your phone screen and earphones. I strongly suggest you make every minute count by singing and dancing to your heart’s content even when you’re already out of breath. You won’t regret it one bit.
