Pet Peeves At A Concert; A Rant Coming Up!

Good morning!
Recently, I was lucky enough to be able to see Emeli Sande live in concert, thanks to a very generous offer of press tickets. But whilst I was there, a few things really annoyed me, whilst trying to enjoy a good concert. So, but if a grumpy post today, but here are my pet peeves at a concert:
The person always on their phone.

Throughout the concert, they will be on Facebook, Instagram, even Snapchat. And only part of this is to document the concert going on in front of them. The huge, lumimous screen is the distraction-seemingly exarcebated by the darkness a concert usually takes place in. Can’t we just enjoy it, without technology, for once? Like back when Rock concerts were a full foot-stamping-sing-along affair? Because that looks far more entertaining and enjoyable.

People moving about the row.
Or even just walking out. There’s probably a clearer cut exit path than having to bumble down one fully packed out row. Instead of going through a throng of people, and treading in their toes, why not go out the right way?

At a stand up concert, the put downs can be rather funny. (Look up Jimmy Carr vs Blonde Women on YouTube if you don’t believe me!) But at a concert? I remember seeing Anastacia back in 2015, yet whilst she was talking-due to a Q&A feature of the Resurrection tour-a group were constantly heckling her, meaning we couldn’t hear her. It’s not funny! And it was all really crude axioms, seemingly sexual, that were being shouted. I wish for the artist to be in control, and to enjoy their show. Heckling is not very funny at a rock concert.
Playing your own music.
You pay decent money to watch a show, but then there’s always one person who gets their phone out, in order to play their own music, usually during the middle of a song. Why?! Just Why?! We come to hear the artist, often on in a quite pricey ticket, not your rap music that’s muffled in its sound. Turn it off, sit down, and enjoy the show. You won’t annoy anyone, promise.

Feet on seats.

Why is it acceptable to put your feet up on the back of somebody else’s chair? Even if there is very limited leg room, I don’t wish to smell your stinky shoes, or to be annoyed at you kicking my chair. Besides, you can always stamp your feet in time to the beat on the floor.
What are your pet peeves at a concert?


I am pleased to announce that I am working with Basic Beauty Tools.

    Urgghhh I hate it when people put their feet on the back of seats! To the point where I’m getting angry just thinking about it.
    I don’t go to concerts often (I’ve been to maybe 6 in my lifetime?) and my most recent I took one pic and uploaded it to Facebook to check in and that was that. The rest was me enjoying the music.
    I probably annoy people at concerts though – I sing along and talk about the memories the music invokes.

    “Why is it acceptable to put your feet up on the back of somebody else’s chair?” …. that happens at concerts , I just thought that only happens in a movie theater lol but, that’s disgusting and plain rude – like why would you do that?. But, omg I am super jealous- I love emeli sandè 😍 , but this post truly made me laugh and is speaking the truth because when I see people Snapchatting the concerts or something and I get the whole videotape the whole moment for memories but, it’s like are you even enjoying the concert when your main focus is your phone .

    Much love,

    I agree so, so much! Especially the “playing your own music” I hate it when you have a standing place and someone way taller squeezes in front and shoves you back
