I have never been to an actual live concert, one where you go pay to watch someone famous sing, like Katy Perry or One Direction. The closest things that I have been to that is like a concert would be Christmas in the park. That does seem a little bit pathetic to me considering I believe myself to be quite the music enthusiast. However this seemingly “concert boycotting” was purely because I didn’t have a job top pay for tickets while I in High School and was free enough to go to these sorts of things. It was probably also because I didn’t really “love” any of the bands or singers who actually managed to come to New Zealand. I guess I was a bit picky about what I used my money on and I I decided to spend my money, well my parent’s money, by going to the ballet, symphony orchestra or musicals instead.
Now that I am at university, and even earning money, I am still waiting for my favourite artists to make their way (back) to New Zealand. Even now I am still not being able to spend my money on concerts so I do have to be quite picky on who I would pay to see live.* Waiting kind of sucks, especially if you have been waiting so long for one of your favourite artists to come. However, I am quite a patient person when it comes to these things.
