The importance of live music
Music is a universal language. Everyone agrees that music is healing, it’s used as a way to escape, to focus, to get through tough situations and so much more. A lot of us listen to music in the comfort of our homes and feel content with that, but there is something so much more special when you’re experiencing your favorite song or band play right there in front of you.
Live music can affect us in ways recorded music can’t. There is a connection shared between the audience and performers that feels almost intimate. The music is being played for you and it takes on a completely different meaning after hearing it live. It’s personal and the people around you feel that same connection. And every performance is unique to that time. No two concerts will ever be the same.
Going to a concert is way more intense than streaming music through your phone. Live music heightens emotions and actually reduces stress. It's a major mood booster. Concerts allow you to feel the music-with your feet, your body, your ears. It’s a full-body experience. There is nothing better in the world than being surrounded by like-minded people sharing an unforgettable experience. Every concert is something that will stick with you forever.
In the words of the great Billy Joel, “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” Get out there and buy a ticket. It’s life-changing, it’s worth it, and it needs to be experienced.
