Whatever you do, never jump on the stage if you have not been invited! OMG! You are putting yourself on Front Street. We are in the time of smart phones and advanced technology. Just as quick as you commit the act, someone will have you on social media with an edited slow replay version of your… “moment”. Are you really ready to be that girl or guy?… If you are seeking fame, this is not the best method… well, unless you intend to be a comedian in the near future and need some good cost efficient promotional footage. Why take the chance to unexpectedly touch, smell, kiss, or grind up on a performer, when you are more likely to end up in the hospital with serious injury, then actually bonding as friends, joining them in song, becoming their dancer, or marrying them! Even those with backstage passes are not likely to receive those types of perks. You are supposed to be enjoying the show, not being apart of the entertainment.

 

Concerts bring instant excitement and can cause the blandest to the most outrageous person to let loose and “Turn Up”. Everyone deserves to have those moments of release and live music has always been a key component for this type of explosive result. There is some level of admiration and/or infatuation in us all. However, some have extreme cases, which can lead to things getting out of hand quickly. There are so many things that can trigger an uncontrollable amount of excitement, and most of the time it’s not a preconceived thought. It’s very spontaneous and only stoppable once the unfortunate/embarrassing/bad outcome has already happened.
