How to Prepare for a Concert Tour

It may have been days, weeks, months, or years dreaming of seeing a favorite artist, and now the time has come. People may consider it as attending the concert, what they fail to recognize is, to participate in any concert, one must prepare for it well. The sufjan stevens – exploding whale is one of the most exciting concert tours. I will give you some of the basic things that must be put into consideration when preparing for a concert.

Know the Sitting Views

Before even purchasing the tickets, it is good to have an idea of the seating views of the concert you want to attend. It is good to know the available seats and if they will suit your preferences. Are you the type of person in need of places with close proximity to the stage or those who want seats that encompasses the view of stage performance plus all audience? Choose what you will feel best suits you. If you are attending the concert with friends or family, it is also good to consider the number of seats available so that you can sit next to one another.

Buy a Ticket

I would advise you to buy the tickets sooner than later. There is a tendency for ticket prices rising as the concert day comes near, so the earlier, the better. Another recommendation is to check various websites selling the tickets so that you can buy from a trusted source at an affordable price. It would be best if you also considered how you would obtain the ticket, do you prefer it sent to your mail to print yourself or have them on your phone. Make sure you buy tickets from a legit source.

Decide Your Outfit

Does it sound funny? Yeah, but trust me, this is a very crucial point when planning for a concert. If you choose the wrong outfit, then you mess up your comfortability at the concert. When choosing an outfit, put into consideration walking, standing, dancing, the temperature and weather of the venue. Shoes can spoil or make your day at the concert, so try as much as possible to find a shoe that well fits the concert. Remember, concerts are the best places to show your fashion. Is it cool and sexy? Well, you know better.

Be Updated

As you wait for the concert day, it is better if you follow the artists and the event. Have an inside scoop if the artists release a new song or if the venue is changed. Some unavoidable circumstances may lead to postponing the concert, and maybe you are not updated. On the final day, make sure you have everything ready so that you do not miss any moment of the concert.

Things That Are Not Allowed Inside a Concert Venue

A lot of artists have now performed in their own concerts. Some of them even had their concert tours worldwide. Most of the artists who perform at a show are singers and dancers. There are different types of concerts you can watch, classical, musical, theatre concerts, and pop concerts. A lot of famous singers have their shows sold out, Barbra Streisand performed last August 9 2016. Fans are looking forward to their idols to have a concert tour in their countries. Watching their favorite artist perform is one of their bucket lists. Of course, when attending a performance, there are also specific rules you need to follow. You are not allowed to bring certain things to a concert, such as:

Deadly Weapons

The first and the generally obvious thing you should never bring with you to a concert is any kind of weapon. The concert management always mentions that carrying a deadly weapon to a show is prohibited since people are becoming more unpredictable nowadays. We are not saying that you are planning to bring a giant machine gun, but unintentionally leaving a swiss knife in your pants pocket will not turn out great either. You attend a concert to tune in to music, not mug random people. If ever you are caught carrying a deadly weapon, you will 100 percent be accompanied out of the venue, and most likely be banned.

Illegal Drugs

Bringing illegal drugs is another no brainer. Similar to deadly weapons, bringing illicit drugs to a concert is probably not the best thing to do. We do not know why someone would, but some people do. If you are caught carrying illegal drugs inside the venue, you are going to be arrested and go to jail for that reason. Odds are when you pull out the drugs; other people might see and report you to the security management. There are a lot of eyes watching you that you won’t seem to notice.

bagBackpacks and Duffel Bags

You are here to watch a show, not go camping. Why would you bring such an enormous bag? You are not allowed to go inside a venue when you are carrying a backpack or a duffel bag. People might wonder, what are you keeping in such a big bag? Security management might also think that you are hiding something that is prohibited inside that bag. Plus, these are just bulky and chunky items that you need to carry around the whole time of the show. It would be a disturbance for other people when you pass by them carrying a giant bag with you.
