I would say a gig is less formal where fewer bands play, whereas a concert is more organised, has a more formal venue and usually more people play.

Gig is more like playing at a small venue. Concert is more Wembly Stadium.
That's how I've always seen it though.

Unless gig is the same as a concert and people just use them interchangeably.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

Personally I just say gig. Concert is something you go to with your parents.

Gig is the hip, cool way of saying concert.



I agree. I've always hated the word gig: it just sounds like you're trying to be cool

i've always used gig as something if i was going to play in
or as something "cool / hip / short" to say :

"i've got a gig at ____ tomorrow."
"there's a gig at ____ tomorrow."

and i use concert if i'm going to see bands :

"I'm going to a concert at _____ tomorrow."
"take your form
be my fear, be my hope
be the indication
if i'm right or wrong

take your most dreadful form
and let it be known"

You play at a gig, you go to a concert, but the two can be interchanged

gig is usually used to for smaller band shows. For example, if my band were playing in a pub tomorrow night, i wouldnt say, "yeah we are playing a concert tomorrow night", i would say, "yeah we have a gig tomorrow night"

If i was going to a small venue to see a band, i would say gig, but anything above like, 500 people imo is a concert
