Default Re: am i the only one who's not a fan of live music concerts?

I love live music. I mainly goto local punk/hardcore shows but recently saw Springsteen and it was amazing. I listen to a pretty wide variety of music these days but I'm not a big fan of rap (i like some old school stuff) but I think the rnb and rap genres don't lend themselves well to a live situation as much as rock and people playing instruments do.

Popular music (rock, rap, folk, singer/songwriter, etc) doesn't belong in a large venue. The larger the venue, the worse the show.

Also, not all music works as live music. Most music you hear on the radio is made for the radio. Some radio bands put on a great live show, but only if they approach it totally differently. I saw Nas live one time and it was atrocious. All he did was rap louder so that you couldn't understand him.

I'd rather see a mediocre band play in a bar than my favorite band play at the super bowl.

The only decent rap concert I've been to was The Roots, and the experience couldn't be more different from sticking a Roots album into your car and pressing play (though both are good things to do).
