    There have been many scandals in the history of rock and roll. One that always comes to mind is the tragedy of the Altamont Speedway Free Festival in California on December 6, 1969.

The concert hall was relatively small, and the lights were left on for the audience. This made the atmosphere feel more informal and welcoming. The band was introduced by a master of ceremonies, and then one of the clarinet players stood up and introduced the first piece. The clarinet player would provide background information before each piece. This was helpful to…

    Experiencing a concert live is breath taking because it comes to realization how much work the artist has put into the music and choreography. Listening to the album is based off of visuals in your head as of what is going on in the song, or how the story is being played out. The concert is about giving the fans a show, but artist also let fans join in on the songs while they sing it just to see how many people actually listen to the music that they have been putting out.
