Should I see live music?

Live music is great. If you like music, you must experience live music and you must also see your favourite artist live. I never used to really go to shows or gigs because the cost of the tickets were always quite high and I didn’t think I could justify it. In the last couple of years, I’ve seen a number of singers and it has been amazing. It’s made me think… why do we have to justify spending money on tickets? We don’t. And why do we have to justify spending money in general? We don’t. Everybody says it but life really is too short so do it… I really think you spend your money on these sorts of experiences. After all, memories are what we’ll remember forever.

Seeing a famous artist in a big venue is incredible. The atmosphere in the venue, the loud music, the bass lines you can feel and the live arrangements. Hearing a live arrangement of one of your favourite songs is the best. Even if you’re not really in to music like that, you’ll feel the differences and you’ll know that it’s just awesome.

In the last few years, I’ve been lucky enough to have seen the likes of Justin Timberlake, Celine Dion, Clean Bandit, Tori Kelly and others. Every single performance has been incredible. This year I’ve already booked to see Beyoncé and an Elvis Presley show (with a live orchestra). I’m looking forward to other opportunities that may arise too.

In short, you must see live music. I’ve added a video to this blog of one of the best live arrangements I think I’ve ever seen. And I was lucky enough to experience this live too. What are your thoughts?
