i used to love going to concerts being a musician a concert is a great way to make a living and play the music you love to play and as a concert goer i love the shows but i've stopped going to concerts because of the idiots who go to concerts too idiots are the ones who think that just because they bought a ticket they can do whateer they wan to do like flail around and hit people even before they get to the mosh pit there are different types of concert goers but these idiots think that everyone wants the same thing mosh if you want in the mosh pit and if you get hit you better not think about hitting back starting a fight is uncool throwing bottles at performers is uncool throwing bottles at fellow concert goers is uncool your behavior is going to make concerts a less cool place because the security is going to be tightened think about it before you do it after all we all want to enjoy and we all bought tickets too

i had my share of this idiots in concerts back when we were organizing them. i used to be in charge of the logistics and security so dealing with these concert goers is my job. one way of controlling these unwanted bottles in the air was to tell the vendors to give them plastic cups instead of bottles... and of course the ever present police with their brutality attitude. it works like a charm every time.

my technique was to identify the idiot with a flashlight and then the cops'd pick him up hehehe totally blinded the fools and one time they tried to rush the barricades, all i could do was push back until the others helped me out

Okay, idiots love doing a lot of things. Example: People who talk in the theaters. Remember when the movie theater used to be quite and people used to have respect for the theater? Not anymore. People talk and text in the theaters. Here's another: Your in line to buy your groceries, and the woman or man in front of you is arguing with the cashier that their food wasn't rung up right, and that it should be less than what it is. It slows down the line and the people who actually took the time to think about their purchases and the price they would have to pay for their food. Idiots are everywhere. My friend had a saying, "God must love stupid people because he made so many of them." See, you are smart and you have respect for musicians and for concerts, but a lot of people don't. It is up to you, and others like you to set examples for those who just don't get it.

oh you just listed my pet peeves especially people talking in theaters and texting one of the reasons why my girlfriend found me different from other guys was because i'd turn my phone off before going into the theater. she loved the gesture of me taking the time to turn it off and leave everything behind just so we couldspend time undisturbed. think about the hassle it'd be if you and your girl were snuggled against each other and your phone rang during the most intimate parts of the movie. absolute date breaker and falling in line with stupid people in front of you just makes me want to turn homicidal

That's super true. In the first place, why would you buy a ticket when you don't like the artist. If you really like the artist enough to spend money on his concert, why mess up his concer? That's totally incomprehensible! If you like the artist, in as much as you spend for tickets, stay cool and enjoy what you paid for.

I have attended gigs inside our school, the first time I encountered flying bottles from the audience was when the school allowed outsiders to watch the concerts, it very uncool, and it was eraserheads then, and even ely buendia said its not cool, it most of the crowd turn around and wants to find the one who did that and they are certainly not cool about it, then second was a concert organized by a radio station and there's a lot of band jamming, and then some uncool people fire up an albatroz and scared the people a bit and they all look like they will hit you if you came closer to them... honestly they are so young, and I wonder what their parents doing, allowing their children go out that late and some of them are girls. I hope reviving the philippines' values will be revived soon, and I hope parents are more powerful and do their part as a real parents. God bless.
