Is a Live Performance Always More Entertaining?
It is quite a controversial issue whether attending a live performance is more entertaining and enjoyable than watching the same event on TV. There are a lot of individual factors involved since each of us has different traits in personality.
As far as I am concerned, attending a live performance isn’t always more entertaining.First of all, whilewe can’t deny that a live performance is more exciting for most of the time, there are other factors thatcan make the exciting occasion less entertaining. For example, we have to pay very high prices for tickets,and the weather can be very bad, especially for an event like a football match. Moreover, the crowd can get so crazy under the influence of the atmosphere at the scene that people’s lives are endangered. It canturn out to be a disaster rather than an entertainment. Conversely, watching TV can prevent all these things listed above from happening. We don’t have to pay any money for tickets, and we can sit on the sofa drinking coffee or tea, and enjoy the performance comfortably and peacefully. This is especially true of a sports event. But of course there are certain events that don’t involve all the factors mentioned above, such as a concert, or a play. In this case, attending a live performance is surely an exciting and unforgettable experience.
All in all, attending a live performance isn’t always more entertaining than watching the same event on TV. It depends on what kind of live performance it is and our own traits of character can affect the choiceas well.
