Have you ever wanted to see an artist or band live but have no one to go with? My suggestion: go by yourself!
Trying to rally up troops to see go to a concert can be easy or challenging, depending who it is or what your friends enjoy. It also depends if anyone is available. Sometimes, you end up finding out that no one wants to go or can’t join you for the show. I’m here to tell you: don’t let that hold you back!
I understand doing things on your own can be challenging, but isn’t life about taking risks & doing what you want?! I promise if you go to the show alone, the person or band you’re going to see will be totally worth it!
Isn’t life about taking risks & doing what you want?!
I’ve been to my fair share of concerts by myself & 99% of the time, I have been able to make friends in the crowd when I got there. I’m not going to tell you that it’s not awkward at moments (only awkward if you make it awkward though, right?) in between the opener(s) & headliner. The weird silence. Everyone else around mingling. My crutch was to have alcohol in my hand or scrolling through my phone to keep me company in this time, however, doing those things didn’t push me out of my comfort zone.
If you’re nervous about going alone, use the internet to your advantage & try to find others you can befriend who are already attending the show. There’s usually a Facebook event for the concert where you can see others who are going. I’ve also seen artists connect people on twitter who say they’re going alone & then other fans jump on & are happy to welcome them to their group. It’s crazy how music can bring new people into your life. You may even find and meet some of you best friends by doing so.

Reach out. Take the risk. Live your life. Go to the concert you want to go to. Dance at the concert. Don’t feel awkward. Make friends. Put yourself out there. JUST DO IT! You’ll want to reminisce with someone when that post concert depression hits…
