2015 Winter — Brixton, London, UK
I went to Jessie J Concert with my college friend — it was MIND-BLOWING show… Her energy was crazy (of course, in a good way) ❤ We liked her before, but now we LOVELOVELOVE her.. Anyway, there was some preview shows by other unknown artists in the concerts (just like all the other concerts in US or UK) and then Jessie J showed up around 9pm.Yet, after the show, watching all the trashes on the venue, I was wondering if we can make concerts more green…?

While waiting for Jessie J to come up to the stage, which took almost an hour and a half, I just got bored and took photos of people — I spotted a cute T-shirt of anonymous intense fan of Jessie J 😀
She definitely knows how to engage the audience to her show! Loved her stage manner ❤
She was so adorable/gorgeous/amazing… just everything ❤ She said she’s personally attached to Brixton, since she auditioned for a band in Brixton, which was her initial career as a musician — so she sang what she sang in her audition back in the day *woot woot* *privilege for those who came to Brixton concert* . . .

And while I was taking photo of the venue after the show, a drunken audience (lol) was photobombing. She probably would not remember it haha 😀
The difference between Korean concerts and UK/US concerts is that there are guest (mostly not popular) singers before the main musician in UK/US performances. I found it quite annoying at first because most people would have paid for their tickets to see the main singer. But after watching several shows in US and UK, it seems like the main singer cannot handle full 4-hour length of the show anyway (since the scale of the shows in UK/US are usually much bigger and crazier); and such system provides good opportunities for unpopular singers/ indie singers to become more public. About all those trashes, I think it’s some kind of eternal problem for most of the show venues including public events like Olympics or World Cup as well. People are becoming more aware of such issues and surprisingly there were some occasions that many people spare their time to clean up the venues after the show. But that’s not always the case 😥 . . . .
I actually do not really have a great idea about how this problem can be solved.
Anyone out there has experienced this OR
