Behavioral scientist Patrick Fagan of Goldsmith University recently found a correlation between attending concerts and a longer life expectancy. The report they published even suggested that going to shows at least once every two weeks could increase your life by nine years. Fanagan himself states:
“Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and wellbeing—with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key,” Fagan says. “Combining all of our findings with O2’s research, we arrive at a prescription of a gig a fortnight which could pave the way for almost a decade more years of life.”
