So long story short a fairly popular American band is touring my side of the pond later this year in about two months time, I've been following them for around three years so I was quite stoked to hear it. However, I have not really any friends that are interested in the metal scene, nor really anybody I know in my city that likes the band. (They are popular, just not that mainstream).
I am considering going alone, though my social awkwardness doesn't help, tickets around £15 per person aren't too shabby though, I've only been to two festivals when friends invited me in my lifetime, both were kind of eh.

I think you should go for it. I admire people who go places on their own. Sometimes people who have many friends have to attend places on their own, because their friends won't go or they promise to go but prove unreliable.
If you go alone then i am sure you'll get talking to people there , you may even make new friends due to having similar interests.
It'll alway be a great confidence boost too , and it'll help you to feel more comfortable around people. Therefore, you'll feel less sociably awkward 😊
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Good luck xx 💛0

Yeah, whatever. I actually went to one by myself last year, sort of. It was actually this big fair they have every year in my area, and they have fairly big name (but usually older) musical acts perform each day. Last year Cuba Gooding Sr. & The Main Ingredient played (old 1970s R&B group, and actor Cuba Gooding Jr's father, obviously, haha) and I was stoked to see them, that's a genre I like a lot, plus these guys are all 70+, so not many more chances to see them. Anyway, my girlfriend doesn't listen to them so she stayed with her sister, and I went and smoked weed in a port-a-potty😂 then went to see the show. It was awesome! But anyway, in that kind of situation, it's just a bunch of people standing around jamming out, so whether you're alone or not is pretty irrelevant. Go for it👍0
