Spiritual experiences at concerts
    #885365 - 09/16/02 10:20 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

To me there are few things more spiritual than a really good concert. The experience of witnessing and appreciating uninhibited creative expression along with hundreds or even thousands of other equally as enthusiastic people can be cleansing and enlightening at many levels. It is exceedingly rare these days to see so many people so genuinely into something as they are at a concert. You might get the same level of ferver at sports games or public lynchings, but for some reason there seems to be so much more substance in expressing something artistic than animalistic competition. It demonstrates everything that is good and pure about mankind.

When I saw Tool over the summer the experience could have easily been the highest spiritually I have ever been. However, it doesn't have to involve such an intelligent, spiritual band to produce this feeling. It has much more to do with what the audience is creating than what the band is playing. To me the spirituality comes from the somehow divine communion with your fellow man that results from the cooperative appreciation of something beautiful. The experience dissolves boundaries just as psychedelics can do. You no longer think of yourself as an individual with your own wants and needs, but more as a collective entity experiencing this holy event.

Of course there are exceptions and there are always assholes at concerts, but if you get a really good crowd and you let the experience take you away, the energy is incredible.

Has anybody else had spiritual experiences or divine revelations at concerts?

(If not, go see Tool!)

You can see a metal band play and lose yourself in the experience...so I agree. However, I think it certainly helps if the band are making intelligent and spiritual music. I saw one band not too long ago on there goodbye tour, it was like existence was playing threw them in praise of itself. Very life affirming. It was also sad to know I would never get to see them play again as there music had given me so much... so at the same time as being life affirming it was also very melancholy in that regard...

I agree.. I saw Tool last month, and it was mind-blowing. I can't fully describe the feelings I got, because I would only be able to convey a fraction of what I felt.

It's like when you watch a good movie or read a good book and it touches you deep inside... Only much much stronger, because of all the other energy surrounding you; you can feel it in the air and feed your own into the fire.

i agree with you... on my first tool concert i was completely sober... not even alcohol (waste of time and money anyways)... but well... after the first three songs i began to feel my chakras rotate and i started seeing the auras of people... it was so fucking beautiful... during parabol/parabola i just completely lost any sense of individuality... my soul left my body and melted witht he souls of almost every individual there, including maynard, danny, adam and justin... it was just crazy... after the show i went to the bathroom and had dialatated pupils... i had friggin visuals as if i had eaten a good 2g.s of mushrooms... it was without a doubt the best concert i have ever been to...
other really amazing experiences were bj?rk and deftones live... the first one was on the 11th september last year, so the whole day was really weird... i love concerts

I need to hear some Tool, then I need to see them, then I need to be them, then I need to squiggie them, then I need to need them, and so on. Or something like that.

Cheers,

Look in the Lateralus booklet...

On the second last page....

What is that thing that resides in Man's brain?

I'm sure you've already found it, though...
