So, you haven't gone to a large concert in 31 years?
The last "big" concert I attended was BB King with Jeff Beck opening. It was in an outdoor stadium in Fresno, sometime in the early 2000s. Probably 9,000 people in a 16,000 seat stadium.
I'm glad I got to see them, both performers were excellent.
I saw Ray Charles, Tower of Power, Bob Dylan around then too and Jethro Tull with Cheap Trick opening but none of those were what I would consider a "big" concert.
Since I moved up here I've been to some great music events but nothing large. The cost, logistics, excessive volume, crowded chaos - none of that appeals to me in the slightest.
My options pre-Covid were Seattle (a logistical nightmare) and Vancouver (also potentially a source of torment). Now there are zero options, no shows, nada. Border to BC is closed and all I really want there is some genuine Chinese food.
I am in the "Way too loud and Doesn't really sound good" camp. Add in "Good seats are stupid money and bad seats are bad" and I doubt I'll be going to another big concert, ever.
Saw LOTS of great stuff decades ago, suffered through the annoyances and enjoyed lots of great performances. It was enough.
