Have you done it? Did you feel awkward?
I am going to be up at the crack of dawn to get a Weezer ticket. I have it all planned in my head, up to Sydney by train, concert, stay over night and train home. My mum is freaking out however about me being alone in Sydney at night. I'm 35 mum...

I've done it at a small scale performance and while i had fun, the whole concert experience is more fun when shared with a friend.
Have fun seeing Weezer!

I used to do it all the time.
Sometimes it would feel a bit awkward entering the venue and waiting for things to start but once the music starts it's fine and i'd really enjoy myself. I was never one to let a lack of someone to go with stop me seeing a band.

Yep I've done it and nope didn't feel awkward at all! It was great actually as I didn't have to worry about anyone being late and missing the beginning, anyone trying to talk to me during my favourite song or anything like that. I could just enjoy the music and leave whenever I was ready.
Enjoy Weezer! *sings* I'm a loooot like yoooou so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting (WAITING!)....

Done heaps on my own all around the world and loved every one. I've made a heap of great friends that I've kept in contact with on Facebook.
In the age of smart phones it's not like your lonely while waiting for things to start. I've sat next to people reading books who were too hipster for smart phones.

Wow Ana, timely thread. I'm going to Flight of the Conchords alone tonight. Basically none of my friends that like them had spare cash when the tickets went on sale, and then my lover wanted to buy me a ticket but he has never seen them so he didn't want to go, so I'm flying solo. I actually don't care, I'm excited. No one talking to me and annoying me as I stare at my future husbands lol.

Ana I've never had to (DH would see almost any band live) but depending on the band I would. FYI I saw Weezer close the Big Day Out a millions years ago and they were AMAZING. So jealous. When we lived in Melbourne we'd see live bands all the time but now I'm in Perth it's just too far and hard.
Alexander my sister saw FOTC last week - she said they were fantastic. Enjoy!

How brave of you! I'd do it, but I'd just feel lonely.. I'd want to someone to share the experience with.
I haven't actually gone to a concert alone, but ended up separating from the group to watch different bands by myself at the Big Day Out. Then I couldn't find them (no one really had mobiles back in those days, lol) so I ended up seeing out half the day and night alone and made my way back alone on public transport. I did get to watch Hole and Marilyn Manson and Korn though, so I didn't care. I made friends in the crowd! I was 15, I think..
