Last weekend, I used my part-time job's money to get the ticket and attended my favorite group's concert. That korean group is famous in my country, and I have loved this group for 3 years. This group had held the concert for three days, so the dorm in my country was so crowded last weekend~
However, after I came home, my mother was so angry because she didn't like
korean group. Moreover, she thinks that I am a student, should not spend time and
money to the stars so much...
How about you? If you like that artist or group, do you want to attend their
concert? Or you think it's just waste of time and money?
Personally, I wouldn't bother going to see them live. If I like a band I'm fine just hearing them on the radio or playing off my pc.
There is nothing I want more in this world than to see Emperor reform and play live. If they do that I will fly to any country in the world to see them. Next band I want to see most is the mighty Porcupine Tree.
Live music isn't just about audio it's an experience. It's louder and makes more of an atmosphere. For me there is nothing better, the single greatest experience of my life so far was seeing Dark Fortress playing "like a somnambulist in daylight's fire" live.
I love going to gigs, I'll go even if it isn't a 'favourite' band. If I could, I'd spend all my money on gig/festival going. It's not really practical though.
I haven't been to all that many gigs, but I've always found that seeing certain bands live makes me appreciate their music more. Bands I'd love to see live include: Agalloch, Alcest, Pelican, Between the Buried and Me and a few others.
I wish I had more money to go to gigs.
I was thinking about it, but I'm not familiar with most of the other bands. It would be worth it if I didn't have to travel so far.
Also, Porcupine Tree; another band I'd love to see live.
Music sounds a lot better live!
