There are some events that have dress codes. Does everyone have to wear all white? Does everyone have to wear a whimsical costume? Will people only be let in if they are wearing formal attire? Before you buy tickets, you must think about whether or not there is a dress code, and whether you can comply with it. Also, sometimes people just like to dress up in certain ways when they go out, even if there aren’t any strictly enforced dress codes. Wearing an outfit or being made up a certain way can transform your experience and let you explore different dimensions of fun.
Think about how much tickets are, and how ticket prices fit into your budget. Depending upon the artist and venue, ticket prices can really be through the roof. For example, when we go to https://www.ticketclub.com/events/cheap-concert-tickets and look up ticket prices for an Elton John show being held at Nassau Veterans Memorial Colosseum on 10/09/2018, it is quite evident that most, if not all, of the tickets are not really cheap. The cheapest tickets are close to $100, and most tickets are over $100. Seats that are closer to the stage jump up to be several hundred dollars. If you look up other events in large stadiums, you will find the same results.
Also, if you go to an event, are you going to want to buy souvenirs or t-shirts? You must factor these costs into your budget and what you are willing to spend. Are you going to want to do something afterward, like go out to eat?
There are different vantage points that you can stand or sit at when you go to a concert. In smaller venues, people are usually free to sit or stand wherever they want, for the most part. In many of these kinds of venues, there are side areas that are roped off for people who paid more money for tickets. However, many times, these side areas aren’t really any better when it comes to getting a good view of the music artists.
In smaller venues, people can stand where they want, though this can be a problem when you are shorter than everybody who is standing around you and people’s bodies are blocking your view of the stage. This problem can be remedied if the venue has a raised section of seats in the back where you can freely go to, or a balcony where you can freely go. However, some smaller venues don’t have a raised area where general admission people can freely go to. Some venues like this actually charge more money for tickets that allow people to go on a balcony level so that they can see their show without big people blocking their view.
When it comes to larger venues, the dynamics are usually different. For example, people are usually not free to stand or sit wherever they want and are limited to sitting in certain areas. These areas are partitioned off from each other based on which ones are more desirable. The seats become drastically more expensive as they become more desirable.
