  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 Gere:

    Actually, it was my agent who was pushing for it much more than I was, i was a little resistant because I was n’t that taken with the stage production. But my agent just really kept pushing. I had just done a very intense movie, Unfaithful, and I thought : ‘ At the very least I ’m going to have fun doing this.' OH, BABY, Harvey Weinstein was still the co-chairman of Miramax Films when Chicago was being made. And the now disgraced movie mogul was adamant at the time that Britney Spears should be given a role in the movie. According to The New York Times, Harvey Weinstein sent three Miramax execs to pitch the idea to Britney Spears backstage at a concert in Canada. But director Rob Marshall and other producers were.

  2. Scott Roxborough:

    We will see a lot more (music biopics) being done and I think probably more in the style where there's a lot more music in the films, and a lot more sort of concert performance.

  3. Nada Surf manager Ben Weber:

  4. Travis Tritt:

    These people have been shut out from getting a chance to go see concerts for over a year, and they are finally getting a chance to do that again, and now they are being turned away for some unexplained reason, so this is not about following the science or trying to look out for the safety of the people there. This is about something else. This is trying to divide people, this is trying to shame people. This is trying to basically discriminate against people that they don’t feel are clean enough to be part of enjoying a concert like that.

  5. Des Barres:

    He made you feel like you were the only woman alive. And he took me everywhere. I ’ll never forget that night at the Elvis concert — or the hours spent with Jimmy afterward on a huge bed up on a pedestal.
