If you were ever worried about how much you spend on concert tickets or really want to attend the On The Run Tour 2, but simply can't afford it, you should know that it could make you live longer - so it's pretty much worth it, right?
A new study has just been revealed, by O2 and behavioral science expert Patrick Fagan, that has found an unexpected link between concert attendance and longer life expectancy. The press release on the news says that attending a concert every two weeks could boost your lifespan nine years.
“Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and wellbeing – with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key. 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," Patrick says.
According to the research, your overall feeling of wellbeing increases by 21% after just 20 minutes of a show - that includes a 25% boost in self-worth as well as a 25% increase in closeness to others. Aswell, mental stimulation goes up by 75% during a concert.
