Several years ago when my daughter was in her early teens she was infatuated with the singing group, The Monkeys!
All excited, she came to her Father and I and said, “the Monkeys are coming to perform in Detroit; can we go?”. Well, of course, we had to go to this concert!!
The music was fantastic but it was so very loud! At that time my husband and I hadn’t been to very many live concerts and the volume of the music was completely deafening, even from seats many rows away from the stage.
Both my husband and I agreed that this very loud music was the beginning of our hearing loss to be sure! I’m sure you have all had that experience of leaving a music concert with very loud music and you cannot hear as well for almost an hour later.
I do now worry about the hearing of our youth today but I am sure that our parents said the same thing about all we Baby Boomers!!
Please don’t be too proud to use earplugs if the volume is too loud for you at a music concert. I wish I had when I was younger. The music is great and yes, I know, it seems that much better when it’s loud, but please be careful everyone!
