Self-reflection: Listening to specific songs would get our memories gushing. We would be reminded about the moments we replayed the song and felt joy, sadness, regret or lust. Reliving those moments gives us an opportunity to reflect who we were back then and see how much we have evolved now.
Great exercise: Dancing during the show and walking around the venue leaves you physically active throughout the show. You are working out in a fun way without even realizing it. You also give your diaphragm a workout when you sing and cheer.
