What age do you think a teenager should be able to go to a gig alone? I mean just by themselves, so with friends of the same age, no supervision. I was wondering, seeing as I'm 15 and want to go to some shows soon, but I doubt my parents would let me unless they go..kinda lame. But yes, back to the point, what age do you guys think is right for a child to go to a rock/metal concert?

Poll to come.

Depends on the concert. I mean: Judas Priest 17, Katy Perry 13, Phil Collins Never.

It would be cool if he didn't make it suck.
If my dad were to go with me to a gig, the first time any swore he'd be all uppity and try to get them to stop, or something similar. And he's be questioning the lyrics the whole time, and probing me on my beliefs to see if I've turned satanist.

If you can't drive yourself there (as in you don't have a license), then you shouldn't be going alone.

sadly, the only gig my dad would go with me to is a phil collins gig

I am dead serious.

16. Honestly I think any age is fine. But because the shows always have aggressive crowds who, instead of enjoying the music, would rather beat the sh*t of each other, I don't think it's safe for a "child."

What I'm saying is that if I ever have a kid, I wanna bring him to an Insomnium show.

depends on how big you are .


13 if you're a big guy, 14 or 15 if you're a midget.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

This. Seems logical to me.

My parents don't mind me at the gig. It's the travelling to and from the gig that they make into the excuse as why i can't go. Damn not being able to be out late. Damn the rapists and murderers in the back alleys

I voted 16 because of the driving thing and I think you're American.

this. I had to rescue my younger brother (age 10) from a wall of death once. luckily, I'm big enough to protect someone while running through a crowd of large, half-naked men beating the crap out of each other.

I went to my first gig alone when I was 15. It was a kotton mouth kings concert. I was fine. So my vote goes to whatever age that you are mature enough to go.
grok it.

SKREAM!

Listen to jazz, it's good for you...
#20
I'd say it depends on how responsible you are. If you went to a gig by yourself would you get high and try to pick a fight? Or would you just stand there and listen to music? Age doesn't matter it's just how responsible your parents think you are.

I guess it depends on the responsibility level of the kid and where the show is at.

being big has it's advantages.

I think it'd be more of

" Hey buddy !" *shove*
" Yeah man ? what's up man ? "
" I want to get in a fight with you. "
" what ? hey listen man.. I don't know you. Why would I do a thing like that? Do you want to smoke a jay with me ? "
"sure."

I was 15 when I went to my first big metal show.

I got headbutted in the face.

I'm sure i was 14 when i went to my first gig with just friends, well i might have been 15 but I am a girl so you should be fine hahah.


EDIT: And really if you don't want to get killed in a pit they're really easy to stay out of, you don't have to be in a pit if you go to a gig, sometimes i just move out of the way when i pit starts, simples.

A couple weeks ago, I went to see Giant Squid at an 18+ venue with a friend who is a few years younger, so his dad had to come with us. It was actually pretty funny, because he had his 50 year old dad wear his Red Sparowes shirt. He just kind of sat at a table in the back, and finished up some work on his blackberry. Though if a parent does come, make sure that they, like my friend's dad, bring earplugs. You will have a much better chance of making it to the end of the show if your supervision has earplugs.

A few months earlier the same friend and I went to see Isis and Pelican, without his dad, and it was fine. I don't think stupidity has anything to do with age. I don't care if you are 12 or 35, if you are going to act like a child, then don't go someplace intended for adults. But anyways, I don't see any problem with younger kids going to gigs by themselves, as long as they behave. There is nothing more annoying than some 13 year old kid who somehow got ahold of a beer ruining a perfectly good show by acting like an asshole. Actually its pretty annoying when anyone gets wasted at a show and ruins it for everyone. If you want to get drunk go to a party or a live music-less bar, if you want to listen to music, go to a show.

Oh, and if you are going to act the way you should at the gig, it really shouldn't matter whether a parent is there or not. If you are really that embarrassed about them being there, listen to music they won't want to sit through.
