Why not? It’s not like you can talk during the concert anyways.

I’ve been to concerts by myself.  It was still fun.

It depends. I have gone by myself a few times when I knew the band and it was a small gig. Otherwise, no I wouldn’t feel comfortable..

I’ve gone several times by myself.  I’ve actually met a couple of friends doing it!

If you really want to go, don’t miss out! Forget about whether you can find anyone to go with you!


I am much older than you. I still remember the time I passed up a concert that I really wanted to go to when I was in my freshman year of college. I couldn’t find anyone who wanted to go, so I stayed home.

It was The Police, and they were playing down the block from my dorm in a neighborhood nightclub. At the time they were not that famous, but I was a huge fan. A year or two later, they were one of the biggest bands on the planet. I’m still kicking myself!

Wait until the day of the show and check TicketMaster or whatever box office originally sold the tickets for releases.  Every show had seats held back for comps (my husband is a radio host and we get comps all the time).  Late in the morning or early afternoon, unused comps often get released to the public.  I have NEVER resorted to a scalper for a ticket. 

The best score we got this way: first section tickets together for Eric Clapton, bought at 5:30 pm on the day of the show. 🙂

Why not go by yourself. I went on vacation by myself Peru, Madrid, and Manchester, England and had a wonderful time. It makes you come out of yourself and have conversations with complete strangers and get to know people you would have never met if you had gone with someone.

Absolutely and I’ve done several times. I don’t see the point to putting my life on hold because I don’t have a partner in crime. If I want to do something, I go. Life is too short. Ofcourse its always fun to go to concert with a friend so you can rock out together, but I’m sure your seat mates can be just as fun.

@MissTatas:  Yes, I would go to a concert alone, unless the scene at the concert might be really wild– in which case I wouldn’t feel safe by myself.

Maybe try your second idea– buying yourself the cheaper ticket and helping her with a cheaper ticket and not sitting together. You never know, there may end up being empty seats right next to each other if some people don’t use their tickets. That happened to my SO and me once, at a very fancy theater, and we were able to sneak into some incredibly good seats at intermission and got to watch from the very best spot in the theater!

@MissTatas:  I vote a big yes, I’ve been to a concert by myself – I almost didn’t go because nobody wanted to come with me – but I had such a good time and you don’t worry about the other person enjoying themselves!

As long as your friend wouldn’t be bummed 🙁
