This happened at the BottleRock 2017 Concert last weekend.
While Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers played the main stage - 4400 younger people went to a different stage behind the main stage for this concert: THE SILENT CONCERT!
Every one of the attendees is wearing a headset that the music is being played through. THERE IS NO PA SYSTEM. How wild is that?
Of course, it wasn't a band playing - it was recorded EDM music and rap music, but still! It COULD be a band next time!
These "SILENT DISCO'S" have been around for a while - but usually on a much smaller scale. This is the first time it's been done on a scale this large in the U.S..
I'm certainly not going to go to an EDM show - but if this ever comes to live band venues- Im not sure I'd be into it. Matter of fact- I know it. But I have to admit- it is pretty cool that they pulled off a whole show.
