Who doesn’t enjoy the feeling of being in a concert? I feel like most people have missed the need to go to concert since the lockdown. Imagine people couldn’t go to concerts during 2020 & the first half of 2021. I believe if people knew that 2019 was the last time one was able to go to concert, people would’ve definitely jumped at the opportunity to go to every concert they can. Now with concerts and festivals coming back in full swing, I’m loving and enjoying the feeling of being in a room full of screaming fans while watching my favorite artist perform.

Fashion plays an important role!

Listen, I love seeing what people wear at the concert. It gets you thinking what’s the vibe for the concert. For Justin Bieber’s concert in Miami, my friend and I were wondering what was the vibe as everybody was wearing something distinct. We saw people wearing leather, cowboy boots, colorful shirts, thin heels, blazers, merch and etc. From what I saw, I think that the vibe was mostly streetwear. It was fun to see people’s fashion choices and admire how good they all looked in their outfits. So yes, fashion plays a big part in the concert.

The atmosphere is unlike any other!

Once you enter the arena, you can definitely feel the atmosphere change. You just entered a new world where you let go all of your worries. The only worries you have is finding your seats, buying merch and food and making sure you know where the bathrooms are. Once you’re in your seats, all you can feel is the anticipation of the concert about to start. The opening acts sure do help as they help get the crowd all hyped up. Once the main act is up and you hear the screams, you’re transported into this little bubble where everyone is just enjoying the ride and hoping it doesn’t end. There are no words to describe the feeling. For me, listening to the crowd sing-along with the artist is my favorite part of the show. I witnessed that in Justin’s concert as you were able to hear the crowd sing along with him and that just gave me goosebumps.

It’s always a memorable time!

I don’t think I have to explain that this is the main reason people go to concerts! No matter what, there’s always something you remember and look back to. From the moment you get ready to the moment you leave is a treasured memory. To look back and relive those moments is something special. We should never take those moments for granted. Going to see Justin’s concert with one of my closest friends was a special moment as we’ve been fans of his from the very beginning and we’ve been going to all his concerts. We’ve been on this ride for over 10 years, I don’t think we’re stopping anytime soon. Seeing her little sister go and experience her very first concert was an amazing thing to witness as she’ll remember that feeling forever. Though times may seem tough, music is there for us and we should always take a chance to experience it.
