Outdoor concerts don’t really appeal to me all that much.
- It has to be a very entertaining band for me to be willing to stand out there in the heat surrounded and pressed in by people just as sweaty as I am.
Sure, you can order a beer, but it comes in a plastic cup and it’s pretty much lukewarm really quick. I’d rather chug ice cold water while I’m out there. Better yet, I’d rather not be out there at all! Give me an indoor venue with great air conditioning, however, and I’ll actually enjoy myself. Well, as long as people don’t get up in my personal space too much. If it sounds like concerts really aren’t for me in general, maybe you’re right. The main thing is my comfort level. I’ve been to some indoor concerts that are just too cold. I get they’re trying to keep us cool because we’re packed in like sardines and that generates a lot of heat, but you can overdo it, especially with giant commercial air conditioners! I know that some people feel like there’s nothing quite like listening to their favorite band live, and I get that. However, I think I genuinely prefer getting a great sound system for my vehicle or my house and listening to the music that way. Then, I can set whatever temperature I please, and enjoy the music in peace and privacy. If I don’t sound like much fun, well, I definitely never said I was an extrovert. I’m sure there’s plenty of people that feel the same way, however.
