Traveling alone is an interesting experience that everyone should have at least once in their lives. It is one of the best ways to test your own resourcefulness, meet new people and find yourself. But if you cannot find the time or money to actually go off to a distant location for a few days, going to a concert solo can have pretty much the same effect with the added benefit of collective shared experience, and of course, witnessing your favorite band perform live. I know what you’re thinking, that sounds sad a lonely. But trust me, it will be one of the best experiences of you are ever going to have.

Don’t believe me? Try going to one of the concerts in Des Moines Iowa by yourself and see what I’m talking about. One of the first things you experience is what it feels like to leave your bubble. You are on your own, in a new place with a crowd of people who you do not know. This is where you truly begin to explore your self and get out of your own head. You interact with people you would never consider striking a conversation with under any other circumstances and even end up making new friends. You realize that you keep your self from so many new experiences because you are so comfortable with what you already have. In this huge crowd of people, you could be just anybody. Who you are in your head stops mattering to you because no one around you knows you or your past, all they know about you is who you are in that moment. You could be anybody you want to. You get a chance to explore your self in ways that your daily life and the people around you restrict you from doing so.
