A music concert is a live performance of music, usually to an audience. It’s a big deal for many artists and fans alike, who love being able to see their favourite artists live and in person.

Music concerts are typically held at a venue such as a theatre or a stadium, though they may also be held in other locations like parks or even on cruise ships.

The modern age has brought many changes to how we listen to music. The internet has made it possible for us to listen to whatever kind of music we want whenever we want, so it makes sense that we would want to go out and experience it live as well!
