How young is TOO young?

Need an opinion...

Ds favorite band in the world is Linkin Park.. Ds knows just about every word to almost all of thier last album and several songs of thier previous albums... He heard me and dh talking about Linkin Park being in concert @ Jones Beach this year.. AND IMMEDIATELY the begging and pleading from ds to go ensued.

Ds will be 7y in July.. Im kinda on the fence about a 7y/o going to a concert...


I mean he will be accompanied by me and dh .. is he too young for his first concert?  Or do you think that being with both me an ddh, he would be ok to go?


FYI ds may be almost 7.. but he is def. beyond his years in maturity.. maybe more closer to a 9 10 11y...

I love linkin park but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't allow my almost 7 year old son to go. They say a lot of bad stuff in their songs. That's just my opinion.

Personally, I wouldn't do it unless it was an outdoor concert.

Well do you think he can handle the crowd and noise level of their concerts. BTW they are FUCKING AWESOME live...I saw them in Houston a few years ago...one of the best bands I've seen live. But yeah...I'd worry he wouldn't be able to deal with the noise level.

Im more concerned about the crowds and atmosphere... ive been a fan since i was a teen.. dh too... the content of the music doesnt bother me so much.. ds, knowing many of the lyrics, knows when to pause and change a cuss word to a kid friendly word... dh and i have bad mouths, we dont believe in censoring.. rather just teach ds not to say adult words

I know someone who took their seven year old to a Bruno Mars concert. They had a blast.

I'm sure your kid will be great.

Linkin Park? Is it 2004 or something? God, they suck so hard.

I'd say no, on account of bad taste.

I love Linkin Park.
If you think he can handle it, take him.
