A concert is a live performance (typically of music[further explanation needed]) before an audience. The performance may be by a single musician, sometimes then called a recital, or by a musical ensemble, such as an orchestra, a choir, or a musical band. Concerts are held in a wide variety and size of settings, from private houses and small nightclubs, dedicated concert halls, entertainment centres and parks to large multipurpose buildings, and even sports stadiums. Indoor concerts held in the largest venues are sometimes called "arena concerts" or "amphitheatre concerts". Regardless of the venue, musicians usually perform on a stage. Concerts often require live event support with professional audio equipment. Before recorded music, concerts would provide the only opportunity one would generally have to hear musicians play. Informal names for a concert include "show" and "gig".

You know how some people can just walk into a room, and instantly take control of it? All eyes will shift to them, all attention will be focused squarely on them, the entire congregation will hang on their every word. Think Penny Lane from Cameron Crowe’s wonderful Almost Famous – when she walks into Stillwater’s [...]
After he announced a streak of comeback shows it seems the whole world has gone into a huge frenzy to get tickets; and they’re not even on pre-sale yet (they’ll be on March 11). I can only imagine how it will be on Wednesday morning. Or, can I?? I mean c’mon, massive massive traffic was [...]
Wednesday, 23 July, I had the luck of being at a Metallica concert, in Bucharest, at Cotroceni stadium. Living not that far from it and knowing the city pretty much, I arrived early in the morning to check some parts of the city. Some good and bad news came up from then: some parts of [...]
