I'm sure there are.

There are 60 year olds on DS that claim to have never been more than 100 miles from where they were born.

I do know someone who died at 80 recently and had never left Hampshire She had plenty of money and was able to as well, just a choice of hers.

OP, you probably can't get round the loud music but if it's the crampedness that puts you off, I struggle with crowded places so if I go to gigs, I go seated if I can. Makes the whole thing much more pleasant for me.

What , never ?

That's unfeasibly weird, don't you like music, not all concerts are like a Justin Bloober gig, some are quite civilised.

I really don't think it's 'unfeasibly weird' that someone has never been to a concert.

I do think it's always worth a try though, you never know!

I haven't for the same reason plus i have social anxiety so even if it wasn't that cramped there would still be to many people for me

How is it weird? So what if many people like concerts - Not everyone does.

I've been to a couple.

One of my biggest annoyances with my social anxiety is not being able to go to more gigs. I deal with everything else but the lack of gigs (especially as friends go all the time) really annoys me. As I said, I do try and go seated but it's not the same to me.

Nearly as incredible as the person who claimed to have been disappointed with the food and/or service in a 'posh' restaurant but failed to realise that there wasn't actually a restaurant where they claimed.

^ Never been. ^

I suppose I'm not that much into music. I don't dislike it but I don't buy any these days (or download illegally either). Seemed to lose interest in it around the turn of the century.

Used to buy records, tapes and cds as a kid and into my teens, and every time I got an album I'd be disappointed. I really only ended up liking the tracks that I was already familiar with and that were already released as singles. They always seemed to have a lot of filler in them so the idea of listening to 15 (I don't know how many is typical) songs performed by one group or artist in a row isn't particualrly appealing anyway. Can't think of anyone who's made over 5 songs that I like.

I'm happy to listen to whatever is on the radio if it's on somewhere or whatever music someone else is playing but don't tune into any music stations as a rule by my own choice. What I will do is dick around on youtube, mainly playing 90s stuff (my teen years) with the occasional up to date song or classic as well.

I looooove music but hate going to gigs. 1. I have social anxiety 2. I'm short so can't see shit 3. It's expensive 4. It's cramped as hell 5. The music is way too loud for me and gives me ear ache 6. Full of drunk weirdos pushing into you.

I only go to concerts if I truly looove the artist.

I go to a fair few gigs. I sometimes get annoyed as I am quite small and struggle to see, but generally I love going and watching bands. It's a social thing for me too, as most of my friendship group go to gigs.

Yes. A year's pass to see all the shows at your nearest venue

Me too. Does not appeal to me at all. I listen to the radio at work, but I wouldn't dream of putting music on at home. I'd rather sit in silence. Ironically, I'm quite good at pop quizzes, but I think that's more a memory thing.

Yes but have my first in october

Main reasons being just never getting round to it. I've been to live bands and stuff in pubs etc but never a proper concert.
