Rock music started out around the 1950s and was heavily influenced by rhythm n Blues, Folk, Jazz etc.
Rock music started gaining a huge following from then on. Rock n roll is not just music, its a religion was the motto of mainstream rock music followers of the 50s and 60s. Musically, rock music is centered around an electric guitar, bass, drums and vocals. Mostly rock songs have a 4/4 time signature with power chords, catchy choruses and strong verses. Some of the great names of rock music include Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Led Zeppelin etc. Their concerts were huge. Not only did they achieve high album sales, but also sold music concert tickets in huge numbers. The hippie culture was popular during the times these bands existed. Woodstock started the rock n roll revolution. It was here that the phrase “Sex, Drugs and Rock n roll” became famous and caught on like wild fire. Woodstock was truly about sex, drugs and rock n roll. Artists like Jimi Hendrix lit up the stage and people went bat crap crazy.
The tradition of intoxication and music started at Woodstock and has continued till date. Every music concert has its own portion of drugs and alcohol. Almost everyone who buys music concert tickets wants alcohol or drugs during the show. Over a period of time rock music has evolved into many other genres and sub genres. Alternative Rock, Metal, Nu metal, Grunge, Punk rock etc are some of the evolved genres of rock music. All of these genres and sub genres gave birth to a plethora of bands, each having their own sound and style. Bands like Black Sabbath, Judas priest etc were mainstream metal, while The Ramones belonged to the punk rock genre. Newer and more modern bands mostly fell into genres such as Nu metal, Alternative rock, post grunge etc.
India is not new to rock n roll. Bands such as Indus Crees were pioneers of the Indian rock scene, deriving influences from Van Halen, Guns n Roses etc. Back in the day Indus Creed sold a lot of music concert tickets in India.
Music concerts are still a huge thing all over the world. Fans want to watch their favorite band/artist live and will go to any extent to procure music concert tickets. Music concerts are madness. Add an alcohol fest along with the music fest and its pure mayhem.
