Earlier this week I was lucky enough to see Olly Murs in concert (again) and it was such a great time, but there was something I noticed… there were some kids at the concert.
Now, I’m not saying that they shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy themselves, but here’s where I began to get concerned. I counted around 20 children at this event. It was a General Admission, which means that it’s all standing. It’s a very crowded environment with loud music and a lot of intoxicated people. Olly, in particular, is an artist who caters to a full age range of teens, right up to middle aged mums, which is great to have such a broad fan base, but this means concerts aren’t exactly child-friendly. Olly has a large female fanbase who, like him, are quite cheeky and flirtatious, which there’s nothing wrong with. But between innuendos, some risque moves and lyrics… is this really the place for children? I’m talking as young as six years old and at least half of them ended up in tears or with a sour face.
