I went to a concert last night and it was epic, with one exception. You know those situations where everything is awesome, the band is great and you’re with your best friends, so you should be having the time of your life, but you’re not? That happened to me yesterday. Everything was great, except for the fact that it was so hot in the concert hall that I almost passed out. Seriously, I don’t understand why any concert organiser, expecting to have 3000 people turn up to the concert, would turn on the central heating. Around Sydney, it just isn’t that cold even in the middle of winter, and especially not at a concert. I was pretty angry about it, if I’m being honest.
Performing last night was one of Australia’s biggest bands and I was lucky enough to be in the mosh pit, standing only a few rows from the band. I’m a frequent concert goer and because of this I’ve spent many of my hours at the front of mosh pits. I love having a good view of the band and seeing first-hand how they interact with each other and what they do when they’re not singing. The main thing I noticed was how sweaty the band was. They looked so much hotter than any other band I’ve ever seen, and I bet you it’s because of how hot the concert hall was. It was just ridiculous.
I’m sure they’re got the highest quality heating system around, but seriously, I don’t know why they even need anything as fancy as central ducted gas heaters. Sydney concert halls don’t need the best quality heating in Australia. Heck, I could heat at least five people around me just by the hyped energy I was giving off. I guess being a massive event planner and stadium owner means that you can afford these things. Even if that’s the case though, you’ve got to choose the right time and place to use heaters of that magnitude.
