Summertime is a great time to hit up some amazing concerts for awesome music. I was able to attend this concert in Nashville, TN to see Tyler Ward with Brynn Elliott & Mikey Wax. The Concert was amazing!! Then again in Vienna, VA to see Tyler Ward again with Brynn Elliott & My Silent Bravery. Which by the wall all of these bands are amazing, I will have another post about them soon. With that said, I’ve learned a lot of things from these two shows and when I used to go to all kinds of concerts back in the day. Here are 7 Things You Must Take With You To A Concert.
1) GUM. Seriously, why do I even have to explain this one. It also helps you fight hunger, lol.
2) WATER. You will get thirsty, I suggest you put one in your bag, you will thank me! I was at the front row, dying, ended up drinking like 3 bottles after the whole show was done with.
3) DEODORANT. Another, this is pretty simple why you would need this. It gets sweaty in there.
4) CAMERA. Yep, because if you’re not able to keep your phone charge, your camera will be your BFF. Also it takes better pictures!
5) PHONE. If you don’t have a camera, then you’re bring this for pictures, update your instagram, twitter, etc etc.
6) BODY SPRAY. Once again, it get’s hot while indoors, lots of sweaty bodies, like.. you will thank me!
7) PHONE CHARGER. Like the first Tyler show, I was able to charge the phone when I needed. The second show, they blocked all the plugs off with tape, grrr.
Thanks for the helpful post. These are definitely must haves for a concert, especially deodorant and water. You’re going to be sweaty and tired from the concert.
Those are good tips! Maybe if we can ever get a sitter and go to a concert again, I’ll be able to put them to use 😉
What a fun post! I never thought of packing these things 🙂 Now to find a concert 🙂
I would have never of thought deodorant but yes, it does get sweaty 🙂 I also recommend hand sanitizer and a sweater or sweatshirt for an outdoor concert.
This post is great. It would also work for what to bring to an amusement park, or wedding. The sweatier the people the more perfume and deodorant you will want.
My camera is my #1 must have for a concert! Deodorant is another must have. 🙂
The only thing I would leave out is a camera! Usually, pictures never really turn out and you can find great ones online the next day. I haven’t been to a concert in ages!
Love that you put body spray on here. I always bring it when I go to places that will have a lot of people because I am always scared I will smell. Even though pretty much everyone else will too.
I totally agree! I have to have all the above. I can’t be walking around looking and feeling worn out. I’m going to post this to my younger cousins wall so, they can have the tips nearby; just to keep them handy for them.
That is kind of funny that they blocked off all the outlets! I have one of those portable charger things that seem to work pretty well- but you have to remember the cord!
I just got one of those too, I wish I had it then, would of been a lifesavor for sure!
I think the blog ate my first comment- sorry if it repeats!
I use a portable charger for my phone-it just plugs in and charges.. assuming you have the cord! lol
Whenever I attend a concert I end up substituting the water for a beer or two haha. The phone charger is a good idea, especially if you spend a lot of time taking pics or videos, or if there are long intermissions.
hahah both concerts i went to were at bars, so it was one less thing to carry, haha
Totally agree with all of these things! Great post!
I can see how all the things you listed would come in handy. I can’t even tell you the last concert I attend.
Very good tips! I would also add, if you have lawn seats, a blanket or chairs! Also if it gets cool at night a small sweater or something and if there’s a chance of rain, a small umbrella! I also say find a crossover small handbag or a wristlet to keep your money and such in! I wouldn’t suggest lugging around a large handbag! OH YEAH! SUNGLASSES! 🙂
As bad as it may sound I never been to a concert =( outdoors anyways. Just my kids concerts at School. I can see where some of these would help with the indoor ones as well. It gets pretty hot when there is tons of people around.
All of the concerts I’ve ever been to would not allow cameras inside without a media pass. Still a great list!
Such Great Tips Gum, Camera & Water Are A Must I Agree!!
I haven’t been to a concert in a while, bringing a camera with you is a must.
These are all awesome things to remember! When I go to concerts, I try to bring as little as possible so I don’t have to worry about my stuff when I’m trying to dance. Since they taped up the plugs at the last concert you went to, you could change that last one to a portable charger instead of just a phone charger!
Mobile chargers are such a boom nowadays. You can buy them from eBay and Amazon for really good deals.
I always ALWAYS always bring hand sanitizer and some cleansing wipes or toilet paper, especially if it’s an outdoor concert.
Water is a good one, when you’re screaming and cheering it makes you thirsty. 🙂 gotta have that gum too. We’re overdue for a concert here.
omg! totes amaze about the deodorant! must share this one! so people will know how important it is to not be smelly in the concert! i’ve been to concerts many times and gosh some people do really stinks. my must have is powerbank, camera, phone, and water! can’t live without water
Almost to the point I want to buy extra just to hand them out, haha
A must have for a outdoor show would be sunscreen and comfortable shoes. Always bring lots of water. Indoor shows i would wear comfortable clothes and lots of water. Never forget the camera.
Great tips. Bringing water along is especially important if the concert is an outdoor event or a fest.
These are all must haves. I appreciate the inclusion of a body spray. No one should be stankin’ all over anyone else.
That camera is awesome. It looks small enough to carry but powerful!
This is a great list. I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten my camera!
I’ve never seen a concert where there were charging stations! Just went to the best summer concert ever, Retro Futura Tour, with Howard Jones and Thompson Twins. An awesome show!
The downside is that a lot of concerts don’t let you bring water in; especially indoor ones. Otherwise, yes to all and I’ll add extra batteries for the camera.
Agree with most of these. But I might not bring my best camera to a concert.
