Theft is one major scene in concerts. With the sheer volume of people in the venue, people abuse this situation to pick the pockets of unsuspecting people.

            Tips on avoiding theft are as follows:

1.      Do not put any valuables in your back pockets or backpack. You might not notice if somebody has already stolen the items there.

2.      Minimize the valuables you will bring to the concert. The less the things, the less number of things to take care of.

3.      Attend concerts in groups. It is easier to observe if somebody is up to no good.

Concerts are usually jam-packed and when you get nearer the concert stage it gets wilder. If you don’t want you toes to be murdered, don’t wear footwear that would expose your delicate toes. I went to a concert once and I wore sandals, and lesson learned, my toes were murdered. Also, we should wear something that wouldn’t hurt us if it gets dirty or damaged due to the stomping in concerts. Or, if you still decide to wear your white sneakers, you can put it on display for proof that you went to that concert. Better, just show them concert battle scars (murdered toes).

Yes, everyone dreams of them, but only a few lucky people are given this particular miracle. Going to a concert for free and getting an all-access backstage pass to meet the musicians is any music buff’s idea of utopia, but how can one get in? It depends on your luck planets, actually. You can join promos and raffles where the winner gets to meet and greet their idols; try your luck in being the right caller in contest radio shows with prizes such as free tickets; or go online and see if there are any promos or contests which you can join for a chance to experience a fan’s ultimate dream come true.

Concerts are surefire events which could be counted upon to blast eardrum-busting great music. But when going to one, remember that the noise level in any given concert runs the very high risk that you could damage your eardrums and possibly, even lose your hearing. Experts advise to bring earplugs during concerts, especially with such music as heavy metal en rock, to lessen the damage to your ears. Additionally, try your best not to be seated near the speakers, for that is a sure way to get yourself deafened by the end of that particular event. Protect your ears so that they’ll survive to hear another rock-out jam fest.

What to wear to a concert? This is a fan’s greatest deliberation when it comes to attending these events. You don’t want to appear shabby and look as if your selling refreshments just outside the venue doors. As much as possible, concert goers want to look as flashy as the stars they are going to watch. Just remember, whatever you wear, don’t forget to think about what kind of venue the concert will be held in, such as open air or closed arena; put on comfortable attire so that you can be at ease; and lastly, try not to wear anything that might warrant any unwanted attention and disrespect.

In every concert people tend to be hyper, energetic, and excited especially when they are carried away with the artist on the stage. Everyone can feel the heat as the performers get tired and wet because perspiration. Same thing happens to audience. How about you? Did you already experience the heat during concerts?

Personally, during concert, I don’t forget to bring with me a bottle of water. This can decrease the heat and can refresh me more. So the nest time you attend concert, make the bottle of water your buddy. It will not just quench your thirst but it will also energize you for you to sustain and enjoy the concert.

One more consideration when choosing the best locations in concerts are the emergency exits. It always helps to be near these areas in case there might be an incident and people would go rushing to the exits. Stampedes can occur during concerts and you will get hurt more if you are caught in the middle of it all.

Lastly, one should be alert about the people in the surroundings. If they seem conspicuous then you should keep your distance. Either they are up to no good or may cause commotions that could ruin your concert experience.

Some Concert Tips

I came across an article in USA Today by Whitney Matheson. The title of the article is “What to wear? Where to pee? Some Concert Tips For Adults.” In this article she gives practical tips and advice to any concert goer. Here is one tip that I like and made me laugh, if you want more you can visit www.usatoday.com

  • Please, on all that is holy, don’t look for love. Events like this are not the greatest places to forge love connections, and that’s not just because many attendees are underage. By about 7 p.m., I spotted several girls crying by the soft-pretzel line … possibly because their boyfriends had either abandoned them or cozied up to someone else.
  • Save your voice. Try not to sing along with the band unless instructed. And don’t waste your time screaming for the band’s big hit — nine times out of 10, it’s already on the set list. (In related news, I also noticed it’s no longer customary to hoist a lighter during ballads, either. At a 90-degree stadium show, I guess it’s a good idea not to give off any more heat than you have to.)

In the previous entries, we have discussed some of the things we should remember when it comes to finances of a fundraiser concert. One of which is the artists fee. The reason why we shouldn’t have expensive artists is because we are trying to avoid lots of internal discussions and detailed planning on how to make enough profits. Keeping it low would enable us to focus on why we are raising fund. We wouldn’t want a concert that has profits way less than the expenses. We won’t go through the whole process of organizing a concert if this is so.

The previous entry gives us tips about the finances when it comes to the artists. Now, we will deal with other financial concerns. You must generate an ad revenue which is equal or approximately equal to the projected ticket sales. You must also generate an online count of tickets sold and ad generated. This way you would know if you are doing well or not. It is also a great idea to put up donations boxes. You must strategically place them in entrances, food stands, along the hall and other entry points. By doing this, additional funds and also the audience will be reminded of the cause of this concert.
