If you have been to a concert ever, you know that the memories will be with you for a long time to come; the atmosphere, side shows, beautiful people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds. Not to mention the kaleidoscope of colors and, of course, the quicken pulse that you experience when you are at a live concert. It is almost surreal at times. You lose track of time, and indeed, for the majority of us, all inhibitions take leave of us.
Aside from the wonderful feeling that one gets at a music concert, one also gets to temporarily suspend all worries and concerns that he or she may dealing with. It is almost akin to taking a hallucinogenic drug to escape them. Without the side effects associated with. The benefits are similar. We all know how the shaky state of the economy is, and how it impacts our livelihood. Yes, your hard earned dollars can only go so far these days. Certainly not as far as it used to. I guess going to a concert will be one way of escaping this feeling of doom and gloom.
It is why a lot of the world renowned musicians are having their concerts sold out! Yes. People somehow manage to spare $30 to $50 for a concert in spite of the financial hardships. Such is the magical power of live music. In all actuality, this has a twofold Benefit: It supports our artists (gone are the days of artists making money by having a hit going platinum) since the internet began to enable people to download music, and we get entertainment which is therapeutic.
In case you think I have forgotten, many relationships, romantic and non-romantic have come about after a meeting at a concert. That indeed is the magical power of concerts. People get groovy and before you know it they get bold enough to approach strangers. Then one thing leads to another. That is how it goes. For those lucky souls to score, the end of a concert does not bring about the sadness which comes with it. You know the reason is they are in cloud nine. All ecstatic and smitten! Is that not a wonderful thing, or what?
