I'm trying to think of WHY I like to go to concerts. I know that I really enjoy it, but I can't figure out why. Anyone else ever thought about this?

Well its certainly not to hear the musicits to experience the music. For me, a great concert is total sensory overload. Of course the music should sound good. But the experience is more than that. Its visual seeing the passion that an artist has for music, seeing fellow concert-goers eyes light up when something unexpected happens, feeling bass in my toes, smelling and/or tasting weed and beer and patchouli and sweat, getting caught up in the rhythm and flow of the crowd..and to dance like a carefree little child.

It's a rush....and amazing experience.

Looks like we're back to the infamous 'for the scene' or 'for the music' debate....

Because there is nothing like hearing the magic and seeing the magic live and in person. The music, the band, the stage, the backdrop, the crowd. I have gone to over 400 shows since 1981 and don't plan on stoping anytime soon.

tall these things dancingronda describes can't be caught on tape, that is why I don't care for audio recordings of shows I have seen. they can never match my memory of the event.

for me it's for those rare moments when the music takes the performer and the audience on
a soaring flight of musical adventure. We are all outside of ourselves yet enveloped by the
music. It is a spirtual moment of pure bliss.

To escape the ratrace and B.S. of everyday life for a while, and hopefully loose myself in the music and have it transport me to another place for a while.

Just to hear people scream, "FREEBIRD!" and "PLAY ALL NIGHT!" I never get tired of hearing that stuff.

That's me too. A lot of folks our age that I know would never consider going to any concerts. It's why I feel at home on this site because alot of folks here are of the same mindset and have the same passion for the music.

Basically it's been said. A live concert is bigger than just you and you all kind of gel into one organism for a couple of hours. Life's cares kind of float away, and you can be free and have a good time. Unless the show sucks...

It's true that audio recordings rarely live up to the memories. However I do have a DB&GS show I was at from last year that does it for me. After a monster Liz Reed the WCSX party boat hits their horn in approval and Dickey responds to them on his Les Paul. One of those ultra-cool and spontaneous moments at a show. Every time I listen to that, I'm back there.

I have a copy of the DTB show I attended at the Imperial Theatre in Augusta, GA, and you can hear me yelling What's up Count when the band came on stage. My wife and I get a kick out of that every time we listen to it!!!!!

Drew,

Now you can identify another voice....

When I heard the first two piano chords of "My Favorite Things", I yelled "Oh Yeah"...

Not my usual reserved manner.....
