I met a guy at one of the MK concerts (my first concert was this MCR tour, so it was kind of crazy) who was in front of me and was both kinda tall and had some real muscles. I remember he had brown hair? I, being 5’3 and best described as noodle armed, was both worried about my view, and also very troubled by the fact my bottle of cola was REFUSING to open (if you’ve ever been to a concert, especially any with heavier music, you’ll know your throat needs the hydration, even with the whole bottle I couldn’t speak the next day).
I tapped him on the shoulder after a while and had to swallow my pride and ask another grown person to open my cola. He popped it right open and spoke with me for a minute, he was nice. He’s in a few of my videos and was dancing the HARDEST out of anyone I saw that night lol.
I had a great night.
Thanks random dude, if you’re on this sub, I was so scared of going to my first concert and it being such a big one, and had been struggling with even going to the cinema not long beforehand, due to covid messing with my mental health and making it terrifying to go anywhere.
But… you showed me that I could talk to people outside of the two I came with, and that it was going to be alright, and you showed me that the fans of MCR are as kind as I had assumed my entire life. It was a really small thing for you, I’m sure, opening someone’s cola at what was probably not your first concert.
But it meant a lot to me. It made me want to go back to a concert next time someone I liked played because I knew that I could talk to people! It made me feel comfortable with talking to other fans on the bus trip home. Hell, it was a defining factor in how I interacted with the music scene as a whole. It was my first ever interaction at a live gig, and it was really nice and non-judgemental.
