Yep I've done it loads of times. Personally I love not having someone yelling things into my ear while I'm trying to listen to the band! I go to the movies alone heaps too.
Your Mum being worried about you being alone in Sydney made me laugh!

I've done it before and would quite happily do it again. My DH and the majority of my friends don't share the same music taste as me. A few times I've said 'I'm going to see this band, do you want to come?' and the usual reaction is 'Err... Who?!?' So I'd rather go alone then drag along someone that wasn't particularly interested. My DH came along once to one and wanted to leave about 3 songs in so never again have I taken him.
Weezer are awesome. I'm sure any insecurities about being on your own will be quickly overcome once they appear on stage.
Oh and my Mum still really freaks out about me going out at night on my own too. I've just turned 32...

I went to big day out a couple of years ago by myself. I wanted to see rammstein and there was no way I was missing out (been a huge fan for a loong time ). Turns out a couple of my friends (not real close) were going too though and I met up with them for a very brief while, but they wanted to go see other bands and I wanted to get in early to get a good spot near the front of the stage so I went off on my own again. It was worth it, they got stuck outside the gates and I was right up front Honestly I couldn't have cared less that I was by myself. I ended up randomly chatting (ie. yelling lol) to a girl next to me anyway.

Yep, I went to the Eagles and Bryan Adams (is that too embarrassing to admit???) by myself, and I went to the Cranberries with a group of friends but we couldn't get tickets together so we were scattered all over the place so essentially I was at that alone. Do it, you will regret not going more than you will regret being on your own.

I love going to stuff by myself, I feel so much more comfortable to sing and dance and chat to strangers and make new friends and generally just have fun.
(Especially compared to going with DP and having him sit in the corner being bored and grumpy all night!)
I'm actually going to see Peter Combe in a couple of weeks by myself - I can't wait!

Yes I have been to a concert solo when I manged to get a last minute ticket and couldnt get a babysitter so DH stayed home to look after DS. It wasn't DH's style of music anyway so I probably would have gone alone regardless. It was great. I spent the whole of intermission standing in the toilet queue anyway so I didnt feel like a lonely loser anyway.

I'm planning on going alone to six gigs in one week when The Living End do their Retrospective Tour in December! It will probably be weird, but I'm sure once they start playing I'll lose myself and forget I'm alone.
Pre-sale starts tomorrow, and I am crossing my fingers DH will let me buy the Big Red Pass that will allow me into every gig! They are playing one album a night, with their first album repeated two nights in a row.

Well I went to my concert alone last night and it was fine. I was bang in the middle of the aisle though, and I felt a bit loserish walking past everyone to my one lonely seat, squished between couples. But once it started I was totally fine. I recommend it Ana, it was actually great not haven't to think about someone else while I was there.
