2014 By The Numbers

Last year, a friend thought that it would be fun to put together some statistics about my year in music so I’m continuing the tradition this year!

I count each day at a festival as one show although I count each set separately.

37,000± – Largest-capacity venue I was in (Fenway Park – I was unable to find the exact seating count for concerts at Fenway Park)

1,104 – Miles to the furthest venue (3rd & Lindsley in Nashville)

300 – Number of sets I saw

270 – Different bands I saw

178 – Bands I saw for the first time in 2014

177 – Shows I saw

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!

  1. How about biggest surprise act i.e. exceeded expectations.
    And biggest disappointment for concert, and why? Venue issue, artists not up to snuff, etc.
