In the past few years I have developed a passion for attending live music events. There is something about the mass of people gathering with an appreciation for a particular artist or style of music that is exhilarating. While live albums and DVDs are a tolerable substitute, they can’t compare to actually being there.
For me, there are two aspects that can either make or break a concert: the sound quality and the stage show. One of the perks of witnessing a larger act is that they have the resources to use state of the art sound equipment and put on a spectacular show. The best shows, in my opinion, combine creative lighting and smoke machines to create a unique ambiance.
