Addicted much? Yeah, you could say that. But you know what? I love it! I don’t ever want to stop. In fact, this is the first year I have ever really made a habit of buying tickets for multiple shows. Now, I can’t stop going.
Are you like me? (Comment with your Instagram or Snapchat name so I can follow your concert pictures!) Check out my 6 seriously motivating reasons I won’t even try to stop going to live shows. I would love to hear if you agree with them – and tell me why you love live music too!
6 Motivating Reasons Why I Keep Going to Concerts
1. Supporting The Artist
Artists basically make like nothing from Spotify, Pandora, or other streaming apps. And truth be told, they don’t make much money from album sales either. The bulk of their income comes from ticket sales and merchandise profits.
So next time you go to a concert, fork over the $25 for a t-shirt, you are helping that artist support themselves while they create amazing art.
2. Fun With Friends
It is so much crazy fun to sing my heart out with my friends at a live show. Turning to each other and dancing along to the music. It creates some fabulous memories we cherish for years to come.
I know, my extroversion is showing here. But when the crowd lights up the arena with their phones and screams out the lyrics, I can’t help but feel extreme happiness. There is nothing better!
4. Creative Inspiration
Depending on the type of show, I get something different out of it. If it is a large stadium tour, I am amazed by the teamwork behind choreographers, costume designers, and lights and sounds and set design. The entire production is a creative masterpiece.
For those more intimate acoustic shows, I am moved by the passion and creative musical expression of the singer/songwriter.
No matter what type of show, I always leave inspired to create my own form of art afterwards.
5. Feeling the Music
When the musical artist is up on stage, feeling every lyric and performing it with passion, I am moved. I feel the emotions and just it so much. Then there are the fast songs that make me move. It is exhilarating.
6. I Can’t Sing
When I was a kid, I dreamed of being a singer. As I grew older, I realized that I should probably stick to writing. I just don’t have the talent. But when I go to live shows I get to sing my lungs out without anyone caring what I sound like. BOOM!
