Did you know that psychologists and researchers have found going to concerts creates a sense of euphoria? If you’re an avid concertgoer or love music, then you may recognize this feeling. The best concerts can make you feel happy, excited, passionate, and enthralled all at once.
And while you may love singing along with your favorite band or splurging on an all-access pass, there are some issues that could mess with this euphoric feeling. It’s important to know concert etiquette before splurging on your next ticket. Avoiding annoying behavior at concerts can help you be a better audience member and even help your friends get the most out of the performance.
But, what behaviors should you avoid? Read on to discover what you need to know.
While it’s ok to ask a quick question, excessive conversation is distracting and perceived as rude.
You may think the music is loud enough to cover your conversation, but other concertgoers may be able to hear every word. And not to mention, straining to speak above the loud music can place stress on your voice.
A fun concert is a great activity for a night out. But, concerts are also investments. Don’t waste money by gabbing on and missing the best parts of the performance!
Photographing Every Move
It’s a given that you’ll want to photograph your favorite band or performer. But, excessive photographs can distract other audience members and even the performer. Instead of trying to capture every move with flash or video, focus on the best moments for picture-taking.
Scolding Other Concert Goers
It’s incredibly annoying when audience members stand up, block the stage, or stand in their seats. This can cause frustration and rage because you can no longer experience the performance in the same way.
But, yelling at other audience members to quiet down or sit down often leads to confrontation. If the person in front of you is blocking your view or is distracting, a simple tap on the shoulder or brief conversation is appropriate.
Forcing Your Way up Front
Don’t force your way up to the stage. Whether you’re attending a small local concert or blow-out performance, pushing your way past others is rude and careless. If you’d like to score a better seat or spot, ask security or other audience members before pushing your way in.
Concerts are about having a great time. From concert dancing to singing along, performances can be a blast. But, overdrinking can lead to sloppy and rude behavior. Know your limits!
Not Being Present
Spending the entire concert buried in your phone and scrolling social media is a big disservice. Concert ticket sales are an investment in a fun night out.
Don’t waste this splurge by not being present. Think about your ideal concert and have a look at the best ticket options to book your next dream performance.
