The Unbearable Stadium Concert Experience

I find people can’t sit still at ANY concert or show these days.They’re too busy buying beer and food and going to the bathroom. It’s a complete nuisance.

I don’t know why these people go to concerts when they can’t sit still for the length of one song. I don’t know what that’s about. And not to mention those who get there late, have to find their damn seat and we have the pleasure of ushers shining their damn lights in everyone’s faces as these people are shown to their places. Then 4 minutes later they need the bathroom and another beer.

I really enjoyed Alyson Camus’ Rolling Stones at the Rose Bowl review (here).  Although, with all due respect, does anyone think the Stones are drawing 90,000 20-somethings to their arena shows? The fact is, no, they’re not, we’re all older, we love our favorite bands and we deserve to be there like anyone else.

I was probably one of the youngest at the Metlife show I attended with my husband Ken Shane (his review here) and it was hard for even me to jump through all the hoops, and I’m a fit individual. It’s unreasonable to expect some of these people are going to stay home.

On the other hand, the sheer unpleasant experience does cause people to proclaim, “I’m never doing this again.” Mainly because existing infrastructure almost NEVER alleviates the fact that stadiums grow in size while infrastructure exists to accommodate about half the size of what the stadium can hold. And when I say infrastructure, I’m not talking about adding parking, I’m talking about the roadways and public transportation we have to use to get in and out.
