Well i'm going to the defenders of faith tour with Opeth and Arch Enemy in Birmingham next week and the person i was going with has pulled out. So now it's very possible that i'm going on my own.
I don't know what to do? I really want to go, but my Mum is getting all freaked out about me going on my own to Birmingham(muggers, chavs, etc...). I mean i'm 19 it can't be that dangerous, i personally think she is over reacting...

What would you do in my situation?

Dude you're 19 years old :\
Tell her that in other countries you would be in the middle of some battlefield with a gun in your hands at that age, and that a lot of people live on their own...

I'd go. Try to find someone else. Sometimes you can join an organized bus and go with all the people from the bus. Check in your local music scene place.

I started going to gigs on my own at 13. Stop being a wimp.

Just tell your mother you found someone else to go with. Hell, I'll go with you if you pay the train fare
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Obviously you are if you are letting your mother tell you what to do at 19. I realize you live at her house and all so you have to obey some of her rules... but jesus ****ing christ. You are a legal adult... go to the show.

None of my friends like the bands I do, give or take four to five bands, so I always end up going to concerts alone.

Actually, you live in her house, you have to obey her.
However, It's illogical that she will tell you if you can go or not to a gig.
However, it's logical that she will be worried and will try to tell you not to go.

in seriousness, going into birmingham is fine, go a little bit early like 3 or so..... to queue, and on the way back after the gig to the train station follow a crowd, theres loads of people getting the trains afterwards and so if anything happens people will be around.
#23
i go to gigs on my own all the time. once you get in the middle of a crowd you might as well not be with anyone anyway. obviously your mum has concerns but at 19 you should be fine.

I'm not letting her at all, it's just her and my sister are both like "WTF why are you going to a gig on your own?!"
They don't seem to understand that it's quite a normal thing to do. Hell i'm going whatever she says, i was just curious to see what people think.

That's exactly what i said, she doesn't seem to understand. ****ing over-protective Mother's!

Go, I've gone to gigs on my own and I'm 15. It's really not dangerous at all unless you're at a tough guy FSU hardcore show which you're obviously not.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything
#29
I've almost had to go on my own, as few people I know share my music tastes. In fact, I had to pay for my friend to go with me to the Opeth gig in London (I'm not too fussed, it'll be worth it).

As far as safety goes, as long as you've got your transport sorted, it should be fine. You'll be able to mix in with some people in the queue and find some people to hang out with. Unless you're wondering around Birmingham on your own (why would you?), you'll be fine

As someone else said, follow the crowds.

Obviously it's not as fun on your own, but still.

Solution: Move out.

I moved out at 16 and never wanted to move back.
