Concerts ♥

So I've decided that on Sundays I want to start posting lifestyle kind of posts where it will be about anything I feel like writing about or just chatty posts just because I know sometimes beauty post after beauty post may become a tad bit boring, so lets get on with it! 



Since I was young (and I'm talking my first concert when I was 4 years old rocking out to The Spice Girls) concerts have always been a huge part of my life. Of course starting when I was young meant dragging my parents along but I was lucky in terms that they like all the same music I do, now well I don't go with my parents although the odd time when a music act comes that none of my friends like I do drag my mum along. I've been to a lot throughout the years and have so many happy memories from them as for those 2 hours of your life you can forget any problems or worries you may be having and totally just enjoy yourself.
Stressful thing about them? Getting the actual tickets. I swear the amount of mini heart attacks I get while waiting for the clock to hit 9am to try and grab a pair of tickets, and then to be disappointed because they sold out in 0.2 seconds or your internet decides to mess up or your computer decides to freeze. Or the most recent problem that is becoming a habit, I never have enough money in my bank so I use my dads account and he forgets his password.every.single.time causing me to freak out every.single.time.
I was never the person to stand watching the concert through a camera either constantly taking photos or videoing the concert as when I was younger my dad was left to do that for me, but now days I barely take any photos as I'm too busy enjoying myself (while maybe having a cheeky alcoholic beverage too). However something that annoys me and I've noticed it happen in the last 2/3 concerts I've been at, people who spend €70-€80 on a concert ticket and for the whole show sit on their seat TEXTING.ALL NIGHT LONG. MISSING THE ENTIRE SHOW. WHY? Literally when I went to see Miley Cyrus the girl that was on front of me legit lay down on the seats beside her texting all night long and didn't look up once. Them tickets were expensive like, so why would you waste that money to sit and text like you can do that anywhere for free. 
Getting off that topic because I really just don't understand it, I've been going to concerts for 16 years straight and so I've seen a lot of people that I liked and some that have even split up by now. Sadly I have none left this year for November or December (although I am wanting to go to Enrique Iglesias because Demi Lovato is opening for him, but that will be a last minute decision if I go to that). So far I only have 3 planned for next year and I'm sure that number is going to grow because everyone seems to be announcing tour dates at the minute. I do adore saving all my tickets and sticking them up on my wall as like I said they're always good memories.

Do you enjoy going to concerts?

  1. I like a lot of concerts, however I prefer having seats (despite not sitting in them). I've been standing at Manchester Academy (2) before and you just get absolutely crushed in the crowd - it's horrible. I DON'T WANT TO BE COVERED IN OTHER PEOPLE'S SWEAT. However, my friends and I went to see One Direction in June and we had seats. We were stood up dancing the entire time, but we actually had our own little spaces that were only invaded by the odd over-energetic jumper. I had a much more enjoyable experience having my own little spot, but that might just be me being antisocial haha!

    1. I totally agree, I do prefer seated but sometimes it annoys me that I can't stand up and dance. It depends on the kind of concert I'm going to really. If I got standing tickets when I was younger I literally used to be outside the venue from 9 that morning to try get front row but now that I'm older obviously I don't do that because I literally would not be able for it so it doesn't bother me if I'm standing at the back aha. Glad you enjoyed the concert but I definitely agree I hate having people crushed up beside you and having no personal space :') x

  2. I love concerts. It might be my favorite thing in the world! I just love getting a whole big group of people having fun and enjoying something together. And I love all the memories I have from each concert.

  4. I adore going to shows & concerts. They're fun! It's totally different experiencing live music rather than listening to songs via your car's speakers. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼ ☯

  5. I've only been to a few, but it's definitely something I want to do more. I get really stressed out buying tickets in case the place turns out not to be wheelchair accessible. xD I also hate that I usually have to call instead of using ticketmaster. I always get my mum to do it because I'm socially inept. Lol.
