SUMMERSON: For the love of live music
When you’re a music fan, there’s something almost spiritual about seeing the people who make the music you love do it live. It’s an experience like no other and one of the most integral parts of really loving an artist or band.

Fortunately for me, many of my favorite bands who are still touring are still at least relatively low-key and therefore sell reasonably priced tickets.
