The History of Tickets for Concerts


Concerts have long since been a favorite past time for the public. Although many people may associate concerts with the grandiose, high profile performances put on by today's popular artistes, they began life as a very different affair altogether.


The term 'concert' is wide ranging and can mean a variety of things. It can entail anything from a private performance in a home, to an appearance in front of tens of thousands in a public setting. But the first concerts date back over 2000 years to pre-Christian Greek civilization. Performances of famous Greek plays by playwrights such as Euripides, Epicharmus and Homer would be held in public in festivals such as the Athens based Dionysa, where thousands would flock to see comedies and tragedies in an outdoor, free for all setting. It is amazing to think that the first concerts of this very progressive type were happening as early as 700 BC.


In later empires, particularly the Roman Empire of a few centuries later, plays and concerts were largely adapted by playwrights such as Seneca and Platus from ancient Greek dramatic works, and at this point, the lure of lower key private concerts came into play for the higher and ruling classes of the Roman Empire. Whilst plays and concerts were generally free for the masses to attend, Emperors and high level government officials would hold opulent parties where one off, private concerts would be the focal point, solidifying concerts as a 'party piece' of sorts.


It's important to note that this dedication of music and drama to the public domain remained largely in place for centuries. In all cultures around the world, the public had free, unrestricted access to concerts and plays on a regular basis; this was their escape from the real world in a time where the media simply did not exist.


As industry developed, later centuries saw the construction of large, grand opera halls in the USA; wooden buildings of the 18th and 19th centuries gave way to structures such as Carnegie Hall in New York, built in 1891 to host concerts exclusively. By the turn of the 20th century, concerts had well and truly become a grand affair; with this, the advent of paid events became an attraction to those with disposable income. Free concerts would still be held in many communities, but orchestral concerts and large scale affairs were reserved largely or those who could afford to watch them.


It was not until the 1930s, to the middle of the century, where the concept of the modern day 'pop concert' came to be in existence. Radio and later TV, as well as faster and safer travel, meant that artistes could now travel the length and breadth of the globe performing concerts, whereas previously their fans would have had to be content with a recital by someone else. And so, the concerts wee see today were born from this boom in media and culture. Advancements in technology meant that by the 1970s, pop concerts were large, over the top theatrical affairs aimed at creating an assault on all of the fans' senses.


In today's modern concert setting, it is now as much about the experience as the music or drama being shown. Concerts have been solidified in culture as a social function as much as a showcase of the artiste's work, with concert tickets being as popular a purchase today as ever!.

No, in most cases concert tickets won’t normally have your name on them, so you could, in theory give them to someone else.
