Freebase

  1. Concert

    A concert is a live performance before an audience. The performance may be by a single musician, sometimes then called a recital, or by a musical ensemble, such as an orchestra, a choir, or a musical band. Concerts are held in a wide variety and size of settings, from private houses and small nightclubs, dedicated concert halls, entertainment centres and parks to large multipurpose buildings, and even sports stadiums. Indoor concerts held in the largest venues are sometimes called "arena concerts" or "amphitheatre concerts". Regardless of the venue, musicians usually perform on a stage. Concerts often require live event support with professional audio equipment. Before recorded music, concerts would provide the only opportunity one would generally have to hear musicians play. Informal names for a concert include "show" and "gig".

Examples of concert in a Sentence

  1. Richard Simmons:

    No one should be worried about me, Simmons said. The people that surround me are wonderful people who take great care of me. WATCH: The Real Reason Richard Simmons Has Been in Hiding For Nearly a Year On Saturday, the New York Daily News published a long report citing on and off the record sources who expressed concern for Simmons' well-being. Simmons called the report very hurtful. I love all the people who worry about me, Simmons said. But it was time for me to take some time to be by myself. For the last 40 years I have been traveling, teaching classes, and I had a knee injury, so I had a knee replacement, which was very difficult for me… I have really just been taking it easy, staying at home, working out in my gym and doing the things I haven't done in a very long time. According to Simmons, he's been keeping in shape despite concern that he might need another knee replacement. In response to speculation he has avoided going out because he has gained weight, Simmons said, I still weigh 150. I work out every day. I have a gym at the house, and I am very healthy. Simmons was last photographed in January 2014 by TMZ. In November 2014, reports of Simmons' knee injury surfaced. Simmons took to Facebook then to thank his fans for their outpouring of love and concern. I have had a tough time dealing with this injury, as it is keeping me from doing what I truly love to do and that is to teach classes around the world, he wrote. Make sure you keep Sweatin'! NEWS: Richard Simmons Feels for Miley Cyrus The Sweatin' to the Oldies creator made his last public appearance in December 13, 2013, at SPARKLE: An All-Star Holiday Concert at ACME Comedy in Los Angeles. This is how I want to live my life right now.

    The stock exchange's enquiries are to protect the right of shareholders to information, acting in concert itself does not infringe the law but you need to inform the public and let shareholders decide whether the actions are good or bad and which side they want to take.

  5. Bertrand Desplat:

    Like 99 percent of professional teams in Europe, Guingamp has no chance of winning a European cup. We couldn't care less. The idea for us is to have challenges ahead that look unwinnable and to try and win them, when you win an unwinnable challenge, the collective emotion is better than a Bruce Springsteen concert.
