If you are a music lover, like to go to concerts and really want to know how to meet a band so you can take some photos with them, get autographs or even chat with them a bit?
Well, you are reading the right article.
You can actually find different ways to meet your favorite rock stars. It’s not impossible at all, but your success rate will depend on how famous the band is and how smart you are at it.
So what you’re going to read about here are the “traditional” ways you might meet a band at a music concert. Basically, you need more “luck” to make them work. But hey, “luck” is when preparation meets opportunity, right?
You can actually find alternative ways to do this, but we’ll get to that later. I recommend that you first read the tips here and put them into action:
1. Wait for the band at the airport
Before band members and their concert crew arrive, the usual way to meet them is to wait at the airport. You can often meet them at the airport the day before the concert. But in some cases, like when they have to do promotions, they can also arrive at the airport a few days earlier. So always be up to date on their gigs by checking the band’s official website as well as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus etc for more information.
Often band members are happy to see fans and would stop for a while to sign stuff or even take some photos if possible. However, of course, they won’t be able to stop and chat for too long as they need to rest and prepare for the show.
2. Find where their hotel is
You can do this without acting like a stalker. Stalking is taboo.
The way to do this is to go to the hotel they are staying at and wait outside. Many stupid and crazy fans just go to the hotel and chase their idols, so never do that!
Since it’s often a secret which hotel a band will stay in, check out the most popular 5-star hotel near the concert hall. If you really want to meet her then go there and wait hours before or after the show. Remember to act normal instead of acting like a stalker.
3. The concert venue
You can play a band at the airport, hotel, and the concert venue.
Fans usually wait for the band members to come out and sign stuff after the show is over. But keep in mind that most of the time they take hours to come out and so you have to leave the venue very late. What you really need here is patience.
Another tip for doing this is to find out where their tour bus is and wait there. If a security guard tells you not to wait because the band will never come out, don’t just trust him. Keep in mind that he’s paid to do this, so chances are he’s just trying to do his job.
