Concertophobia is the fear of concerts. Some people don't like going to band concerts because of the crowds, people often rocking out crazy, and loudness of bands performing. These are the common causes of concertophobia. It is commonly suffered by young children as well as adults. Sufferers would avoid going to concerts, as well as people suffering from enochlophobia (fear of crowds), anthrophobia (fear of people), melophobia (fear of music), and phonophobia (fear of loud music). However concertophobes would not be bothered listening to live music recorded from concerts. Symptoms of concertophobia include breathlessness, heart palpations, trembling, nausea, loss of control, and inability to think. It is treated using virtual therapy and psychotherapy.
