Nothing says ‘I’m into going to gigs’ more than a pinboard or box full of old ticket stubs. But what about when you want a clear out, but don’t want to forget the concerts you’ve been to? Or maybe you just want to reminisce about years gone by and the live music you’ve seen. Concert Archives is an awesome new gig database that allows you to archive every single gig you’ve ever been to and share them with your friends.
It’s the tour we’ve all been waiting for… global superstar Adele is finally heading Down Under for the first time in her 10-year career.
This year is already down to its last two months, and what better way to kick off the next one with watching some of the most anticipated sporting events? They’ll bring a much-needed dose of action and excitement, as the best players in the world come face to face. There are many reasons to look forward to these exciting play-offs and even more events to watch out for.
Geoffrey Blainey, the author of the Shorter History of Australia, notes that Australia was the first country to provide special attention to spectator sports — especially to Australian Rules Football. Until today, Aussies weep and cheer for our beloved football teams, and even scour the internet to get tickets for AFL Anzac Day. With such dedication to the sport, one has to wonder: when did we start falling in love with footy?
When you’re a fan of an artist or a band, there are no limits and borders for it. The only thing that matters is how their music connects with you. The same philosophy is applicable to sports. You will easily find a friend in someone rooting for the same team, regardless of age, gender and background.
But that philosophy is not the only thing that music and sports fans have in common. The means of showing support for a favourite act or team are also similar.
Attending the concert of your favourite artist is one thing, but getting to meet them in person is a whole new experience. Every fan dreams of meeting their idol and thousands of other fans are begging for your spot. Do not let that opportunity go to waste by unleashing your inner crazy fan girl. After all, this is your first time meeting your obsession, you should have a great first impression with them. To make it easier for you, we have compiled the proper etiquette when meeting your idol.
If you had it your way, you would watch your favourite singer perform while you sit right beside them. Imagine the major feels you will get when Ronan Keating serenades you with the ageless love song, ‘When You Say Nothing At All’, with him just inches from you. It is the perfect concert fantasy for the 90s kids. But, a live concert is not a daydream. It is a real, and at times rigorous event, especially when it comes to choosing seats.
It is great to plan early before you even reserve a ticket. If you are wondering which spots in the theatre will let you have the ultimate concert experience, here is your answer.
Moments make sports. A specific type of moment. Not those on a podium long after the games end. Not those captured by courtside photographers. Not those that send the crowd into frenzy. Definitely not those that sports shows stitch together with hindsight. Sports thrive on moments that competitors can capture.
And capture, Roberta Vinci did.
When was the last time you saw your favourite band or artist perform live? If you are a fan, perhaps you have just seen Selena Gomez earlier in August. We all have our own favourites and whether or not we admit it, we always want to experience their music right in front of the stage. We are willing to spend part of our savings for a ticket to that much-awaited concert. We endure the stress from the long ticket lines because we really love concerts!
So what is the story behind our obsession with concerts?
