I'm no expert but isn't this where you have to write events chronologically and objectively? So it would basically just be a relation of events, being specific but not analytical. Sorry I can't be more specific- I don't know what your chronicle's on :/
Hope this is in any way helpful?

Hey! so for my chronicle I have to imagine that I am a journalist who has attended the concert of my favorite artist, so I basically need to write a journalistic chronicle...I just don't know what to actually talk about?

I have only ever been to 1 concert which was many years ago! so I don't really know what to write about?

Ah so I'm similarly inexperienced on the concerts front, but maybe if you want to get more of a gist of what they're like, lots of people take videos and I'm pretty sure Netflix has some recordings. You could also look up the setlist of your favourite artist which will tell you the chronology to the songs.
But to write a chronicle of the concert, you'd have to write about everything in the order it happened whilst keeping an objective view point. For example, steering clear of opinion adjectives (brilliant (unless talking about colour), great, amazing, etc) and sticking to factual ones (referring to colours, size, things that are objectively true). So you'd describe the colours on stage, the setting, what songs are played, the audience's reactions, and make sure not to speak about any emotions aroused by it. You'd begin with what the artist's opener and end with the final song or encore.
Hope this is a little more helpful?

Thanks 13Charlotte2001!
Would I need to describe what happens backstage? - Considering I'm supposed to be imagining I'm a journalist?
