When you watch a music performance at home, the only thing you need to worry about is what comfy clothes you’ll be wearing, and when to make the popcorn. When you go out to a show, you have to consider what artist you want to see, as well as do you like the venue they’re performing at? Do you want standing room tickets, or more expensive seats. Is the overall concert worth the amount of money you’re spending?
Watching an award show or a televised concert or a concert dvd can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. But at the same time, you are not getting the full experience that you would from actually being in the atmosphere.
I like to kick back and watch a concert dvd of an artist that I plan on seeing live. It gives you a little preview of what you can experience when you are in the same venue as them. It even gives you a hint at what to expect of the fans who will be in attendance.
