I have driven to and from a concert by myslef.

With the bunch that hangs around this website, there is no way you could ever be at a concert by yourself

Been there. Not a soul around me likes Ben Harper. My wife went with me to a BHIC show once......

Yep, it's kind of nice actually. Went to Steely Dan a couple of weeks ago by myself.
No distractions, other than your usual folks nearby who talk the whole time...I don't understand
that. Sometimes it's "No One Left To Run With" so you just go solo.

Quite often I'll go to shows by myself, as a lot of people I know don't share my taste in music. And I generally have an enjoyable time, as I can concentrate on the music. In addition, quite often I meet people at the shows and pre-show gatherings.

I'm always by myself at the shows until I make it to the HTN booth and see all the great folks from here.

I can get lost in the music of the greatest band to ever walk the planet which is something my doesn't understand. Therefore it's better to be alone.

If you like the music don't feel self-conscious about it- just go and have a good time. And like several people above said, once you know people from this board, you will never be alone at a show.

I've gone to shows by myself quite a few times. Since when I'm there I always feel I'm by myself even when I go with someone, it's not a big deal. I'm usually too focused on the music to realize there are others there with me.

I've gone to many a show solo. It's hard to have both of us get away on a weeknight with kids, so my hubby takes one for the team...quite often! I have only felt a little uneasy walking to my car one single time, and it was only because I was psyching myself out. There is always a familiar face in the crowd going in or coming out of a venue, and I always keep the cellie in one hand and a pointed key in the other on my way to my car.

I have been to several by myself. I enjoyed being able to focus on the music and not being distracted by others who didn't find it as engrossing as I did. If you are in the mood to meet people, you already have common ground for conversation. You should be fine either way.

I did it one time and left within the fist hour. It was the Dead in 03 or 04. I'm a social creature. I felt very uncomfortable. I like to go in groups.

I go by myself more often than not. But I like going with people too. Only occasionally have a felt like an outsider at a concert because I was by myself but then sometimes I feel like an outsider when I am with a group of people I know. It just be's like that sometimes! I will say it is easier to meet new people when you go by yourself. I'd rather go to a concert alone than to a movie alone.

Plus s- many times you can get a really good single ticket, better than any of the pair or group sets that are being sold.

Saw James Taylor at the Beacon by myself 12 years ago, and it was divine. Loved not worrying about what the other person was thinking, and LOVED being able to just mingle and settle into myself.

I go to shows solo all the time...I am divorced and love to see as many shows as possible...if i dont have somebody who wants to see a show with me i fly solo and to be honest i enjoy it...i meet people at the shows and relax and enjoy myself...these days my son goes along to lots of shows with me when we both like the same band.....not everyone loves to go to shows as much as i do so solo it is a good % of the time!

I have been to a lot of shows solo. My circle of friends at home don't really share the passion for live music that I have. Well, except for one. I have traveled to many shows out of town solo also.

Since I became acquainted with a lot of the great folks here, though, never am I alone at a ABB or dTb or realted show, no matter where it is. I love the music and would still go, but these folks are just amazing to be around.
