ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT:
Art is that three-letter word which encompasses literally everything around us. The world we live in and everything in it that spells beauty, creativity and innovation, is a piece of art. The world itself is God's creation, a piece of His art. We human beings, and everything 'living' are God's masterpieces, His works of art. And then there are miracles man created... his works of art. Forms of art are many...music, dance, drama, painting, pottery... and the list just goes on. Arts give us huge entertainment. Entertainment is something that holds the attention and interest of an audience, or gives pleasure and delight. It can be an idea or a task, but is more likely to be one of the activities or events that have developed over thousands of years specifically for the purpose of keeping an audience's attention. Although people's attention is held by different things, because individuals have different preferences in entertainment, most forms are recognizable and familiar. Storytelling, music, drama, dance, and different kinds of performance exist in all cultures, were supported in royal courts, developed into sophisticated forms and over time became available to all citizens. The process has been accelerated in modern times by an entertainment industry which records and sells entertainment products. Entertainment evolves and can be adapted to suit any scale, ranging from an individual who chooses a private entertainment from a now enormous array of pre-recorded products; to a banquet adapted for two; to any size or type of party, with appropriate music and dance; to performances intended for thousands; and even for a global audience.
A concert is a live performance (typically of music) 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 centers 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". The music of the United States reflects the country's multi-ethnic population through a diverse array of styles. Among the country's most internationally-renowned genres are hip hop, blues, country, rhythm and blues, jazz, barbershop, pop, techno, and rock and roll. Some tips help you when buying concert tickets. Firstly if it's a hot band or artist, chances are tickets will sell out VERY SOON. Therefore, it's important for you to buy tickets ahead of time. Then find out the venue and if it's familiar so you'll know where the best seating locations are and compare prices and get the best deal. Confirm your friend or companion plans early if he go. You look for the concert ticket broker. This is usually the best ticket seller you'll find. The broker can provide a seating chart and availability, and if you're purchasing 10 or more tickets you can ask for a discount that is normally not offered at ticket box offices. Never buy from scalpers lurking at the concert gates. They can charge you double or triple the price, and you can never be sure if you may be scammed by having bought tickets that are not valid for entry to the concert.
