Have You Ever Attended a Concert Alone

Have You Ever Attended a Concert Alone?

I've flown solo to my fair share of movies, but I admit that I've never been to a live musical performance without a buddy in tow. Other than breaking off (or getting separated) from friends at a music festival, I've never had to experience a concert by lonesome (and it's usually pretty easy to find a pal who shares my music preferences).

That said, I'd be open to attending a concert alone if it was an act I was dying to check out and couldn't find someone to go with. Live shows can be a great place to meet new people, especially since you already know you've got at least one thing in common. Have you ever been to a concert alone? Vote below and tell me about the experience in the comments!

If a musical counts, then yes. I find that concert and musical experiences are something to be shared with people who enjoy it as much as you. If you can't find someone who can appreciate the artiste as much as you, I see no problem in starting up a conversation with a stranger in the audience sitting next to you. It can make the experience much more enriching too.

Yep. I'm 34 and I saw Paul McCartney in concert by myself. I enjoyed myself talking to the people around me anyway. It was pretty cool.

I've been to serveral shows alone when I couldn't find a friend to go with me. I actually met my boyfriend at a show that I went to alone. He was also there alone and we started chatting between sets.

I've thought about it, but have never done it. I have, however, gone to a show with someone I didn't know because they had an extra ticket and then we ended up being friends!

This is so funny because I went to a blues concert alone just a couple nights ago and felt weird at first. Then my friend who was in charge of the PR got me backstage where I had a blast. I say, Go For It!

I saw my very first concert ever alone! I asked for two tickets to see my favorite band for my sixteenth birthday, but my parents didn't want to pay for any of my friends to go, so I went by myself. I couldn't afford a second ticket on my own, and none of my friends listened to Rush. Thankfully, if you're going to a rock concert alone as a 16-year-old girl, Rush is one of the better bands to see. Their fans are kind of like Trekkies: geeky, and generally decent people.
