Full Speed into X-Mas

Support the small venues

I prefer concerts in small venues rather then the big arena concerts, with world brand bands. In the small places You are much closer to the stage and the performers, than sitting ½ a mile away and watch everything on a screen. And generally speaking I prefer to stand up at a concert. If you cant dance, its not my kind of place.
Another thing is the prices of the big concerts. It often cost 6-700 kr. and going up to 1000 kr. for a ticket. I would think it would be cheaper, when there are more people? If you are selling 10.000 or 45.000 tickets then it should be cheaper than the 120 tickets they are selling at a small venue. In the small places it cost 50 – 100 kr. I know there is a lot of crew and the show is bigger, and there is more security at the Arena concerts – But where is the money going? Into the pockets of Live Nation, who are the worst concert maker.
So you wont find me at Parken or Royal Arena. No matter who is playing. There are many reasons to find a smaller place. The beer is both better and cheaper. Halleluja and praise the Beer.

Cinema
If you are feeling board back home in your sofa, its possible to get some inspiration about what to do about it.
