Concerts fun option for summer

By: Ashtun Welling

   Concerts are gatherings of people of different ages come together to hear their favorite artist perform. Depending on the concert they are usually loads of fun, and you may even make a new friend that enjoys the same music you do. The experience can be simple and cheap ranging from free picnics to expensive packages up to $750. For example a gold package for an Adele concert is $750, you get reserved seating, alcohol access, food, and crowd-free merchandise shopping. Personally I would buy a seat, bring extra money for food and merchandise. Cut down on costs by staying local in easy driving range.

Concerts in Charleston
   Charleston is a not very far away from Ripley, although few big names ever come to Charleston. It’s good if you don’t want to travel far for a musical vibe, but more of a chance you don’t know the artist. For free concerts visit http://liveontheleveecharleston.com/     Some in the lower half of the state are:

  • Wednesday 18 May 2016, Def Leppard Big Sandy Arena, Huntington, WV, US
  • Tuesday 07 June 2016, Dolly Parton. Charleston Civic Center, Charleston, WV, US
  • Saturday 10 September 2016, Kiss Big Sandy Superstore Arena, Huntington, WV, US
   Although these aren’t the only concerts in Charleston they are the bigger names. Visit this link for more: http://www.songkick.com/metro_areas/24593-us-charleston
