Everyone loves concerts. What's a bigger thrill than seeing your favourite musical act, band or singer? Concerts can be life-changing for some, particularly impressionable younger people who save up their allowance and pocket money for ages to see their favourite band, counting down the days until the concert.
Supporting acts are other musical acts or singers, who usually open up live concerts. The management teams usually choose opening acts according to what they believe will entertain the fans of the main act – perhaps acts that are similar in some way, and will hopefully be enjoyed by the fans.

Altogether, including the opening act, concerts can take up to six hours – three or four hours of which are of live music, which is a great experience that everyone should have at least once in their life. Concerts really provide musicians and musical acts with fantastic exposure and the chance to interact with their fans.
Concerts are really a one-off occasion – they are usually a part of some kind of tour. Tours are usually organized by a musician or musical acts management to promote a new album, and the musical act will travel around the country, or even all over the world to give live music to their biggest fans.
Another form of live music that is really popular and has a huge following are music festivals. Every year, concert and live music promoters organize these massive music festivals. They make sure to try and convince the biggest stars and biggest musical acts, or ones that are especially popular that year.
These music festivals usually have more than one stage and last several days. They have several stages because of the sheer volume of acts – if they all played on one stage, one after the other, the festival could potentially go on for months!
