As we all waited in line to go into the concert there was a thrill of
excitement in the air. I was standing there with two of my friends
when we saw a few other people we knew. " Hey, come over here!" I
bellowed. Three tall gothic boys slouched over to us. As we were
talking the line started to move in an uneasy shuffle. We neared the
entrance, where a tall bouncer with a voice that rumbled like thunder
was standing. He asked for our tickets and in unison we passed them to
him. He checked our tickets, nodded a curt nod and let us through.

The only light in the room came from onstage and there were only about
20 people in the mosh pit. Surrounding the mosh pit were metal bars,
then a few steps. To the back there was a balcony curving around the
room and then under that there were all the merchandising stalls. We
wandered into the mosh pit; we were only a few metres away from the
stage. There was a hum of voices as more people filed in. After 15
minutes people were starting to get frustrated because nothing was
happening. Suddenly there was activity onstage and the lights dimmed
the first support band, Slam Cartel came on. The mosh pit went wild,
jumping, pushing and head-banging. In all this chaos I suddenly felt
out of breath, we all clambered out of the pit and onto the steps.

One of my friends kept asking me if I was ok and I said that I felt
really out of breath and had a sharp pain in my chest. We came to the
conclusion that I had probably cracked a rib. Surprisingly it didn't

...ore energy and power.

Through out the whole night I kept that energy. By the twelfth song,
which was the last I still could feel the atmosphere, the pride and
the gratitude. We were just happy to be in their presence. For the
last song the whole crowd moved together in a bizarre, alternative
dance. When it came to the chorus, Dave stopped singing and everyone
in the room sung the chorus back. I felt the unity with everyone in
that room although I hardly knew any of them. The song ended. The
night was over. Dave thanked us and smiled. "I love all of you!
Remember that you are your own person and no one could ever change
that." He walked offstage. The first people started leaving the hall.
I looked at my friends and grinned. The night was one to be remembered
I thought to myself as we left the concert and went outside.

Essay on One Direction Concert Report

- One of the concerts that I have attended was One Direction’s. One direction was formed by a group of boys from London in 2010.

During the audition, the boys were eliminated as individuals, but Simon Cowell saw great potential in these young men as a group.

My First Classical Concert Which Was Performed By Benjamin Pila Essay

- Music Concerts I went to my first classical concert which was performed by Benjamin Pila. Honestly, I did not expect too much on this concert, because I had thought all the classical styles of music is boring. I just wanted to go to the concert to get my credits and go home.

That was the reason why I could not wait to attend the second concert, which is perform by the artist from Thailand Ekschai Jearakul.

Essay about The Concert of Europe

- The concert of Europe could be said to have had a substantial level of accountability in the preservation of peace because it brought about a common satisfaction of the status quo. The concert was forged under the thought that none of the great powers was interested in changing the international order to best suit their need. This is because, no power could be so “dissatisfied that it questioned the legitimacy of the entire order.” (83 p.145 Kupchan.) Some may argue that the concert was not created to maintain peace, because their intervention in states such as Spain was done to drive their own self interest....   [tags: European History]

Concert Essay

- CONCERT REPORT #2 Beatles Z320 For my second concert report I thought that I would write about my only experience hearing songs of the Beatles live. The Rib America Festival was hosted by The Beatles Live Repertoire. The group dressed exactly like the Beatles, even had the same names, John, Paul, George, and Ringo. I had never heard any Beatles songs live before, so that was enough to get me off my butt. Not to mention, it was free entertainment, not a bad time at all. So the show starts, and I’m not sure what to expect....   [tags: essays research papers]
