You like going to concerts, don’t you? And like all oldies, you’ve been to hundreds, if not thousands of them.
And it’s always with great pleasure that you go there, in order to spend a good evening with your friends, at the same time as seeing the concert of one of your favourite bands.
However, you’ve missed a lot of these live shows. And each time, I’m sure you were disappointed at not being able to join the party.
And it’s likely to happen again since you are still a concert goer. Well, let me tell you the good news. I think we’ve found THE solution !!!
But first, let’s see why you can’t go to the concert:
1 / – You feel too old: your legs and back hurt, you have trouble standing up for more than an hour because of the arthritis in your knees.
2 / – The venue is too expensive: or rather the concert comes at a bad time because you just received the electricity bill, and you can’t afford to go to the concert AND pay the bill.
3 / – It’s too far: the concert is 300km from home and your car is at the mechanics. You could go by train but the train drivers are on strike! Hitch-hike then? Oh no, not at your age!
4 / – You’re tired: you worked all week and now it’s Friday night, and you just don’t have enough energy to go out. Tomorrow? With pleasure, but it will be too late!
5 / – You work the next day: the concert takes place on a Sunday evening and you have to get up at 6:30 on Monday morning to go to work.
6 / – Sick child: your son is sick and you can’t leave him alone. You can’t wait until he leaves home, the little rascal. He does nothing at school ……… just like his parents!
7 / – You’re sick: yes, this time it’s you who isn’t well. You have pain everywhere and a temperature. You’ve caught the flu. But you had the flu shot!
8 / – Birth: Your dog has just given birth to 7 puppies, and she’s very confused. And you? Seeing these little animals makes you emotional. No, you can’t decently leave them alone tonight!
9 / – Banned from the pub: as Peter and the Test Tube Babies say, you are forbidden from entering the room where the concert of your favourite band takes place. It must be said that you fucked up big time last time you were there!
10 / – Banned from the band: This time it’s the band that doesn’t want to see you! I don’t know what you did to them, but it must have been savage!
11 / – Hangover: and yes, the day before, there was another great concert that you attended, and today you’re paying for it. Impossible to recover. At your age, hangovers last longer than they used to.
12 / – Your ex is going to be at the concert: you’re afraid to cross your ex, who you first met at a concert of this group. And today it’s either you or your ex, but not both together in the same room!
13 / – It’s minus 20 °C. It’s good that this situation only happens in places where the winter is really cold. Like in Moscow for example. And I can tell you from experience that sometimes, you really have to be motivated to get out and go to a concert when it’s that cold outside.
14 / – Just bad luck: while the first 13 cases above don’t concern you, and all is well, you come back from work and you discover a water leak in your bathroom. Impossible to go out, you have to wait for the plumber. And, as well, it will cost you an arm and a leg!
15 / – Friends for life: your best friend has just argued with his other half. He’s just called you in tears to ask you if he can stay with you while he looks for a solution to his problem. You can’t refuse, he did the same thing for you a few years ago.
16 / – Dentist: you come back from the dentist who just pulled your last 2 rotten teeth. The others fell out long ago. And he prescribed you antibiotics. Anyway, you don’t feel like going to a concert, your jaw is numb and you’re still groggy from the anaesthetic.
17 / – Gout: you have a gout attack because of your excessive alcohol consumption and your diet isn’t the best, either. Your swollen toe makes you suffer, you can’t even go to the bathroom without moaning in pain!
18 / – Tinnitus: You have tinnitus and now you can’t listen to music that’s too loud. Admittedly, it wasn’t very clever to always put yourself right next to the speakers in concerts!
19 / – Forbidden Exit: You’ve already been out twice this week, and your other half doesn’t want you to go out again. Especially with your group of friends, the bunch of idiots!
20 / – Concert is sold out: The first time you saw this band in concert, a very long time ago, there were only 50 people in the room. And today, it’s sold out! You can’t get tickets, even on the black market. You go home empty handed and depressed.
Here we are at the end of this non-exhaustive list of reasons why you could miss a good concert.
And, as promised, here’s the solution. THE HOUSE CONCERT!!!!!!!!!!!
