My fiancee's 10-year-old just asked if she could go to Milwaukee (about 2 hours away) with a friend from school and her friend's dad, to see Simple Plan. Our first reaction was "no," for seven reasons (in random order): 1) It's in Milwaukee. 2) It's at the Rave, which is always a general admission club. I've seen many a show at the Rave and I don't think it's a safe place for a youngster to see a concert. 3) It's an all-ages show, which means beer, booze and (more than likely) marijuana. 4) I wasn't allowed to go to my first concert until I was 16. Even then, my mother wouldn't allow me to take my car or drive to the venue. My twenty-something friend/co-worker did the driving in his car. BTW, that show was in Milwaukee as well (Metallica's "An Evening With Metallica" Tour). 5) I don't know much about Simple Plan. Are they appropriate for a 10-year-old to be listening to (do they curse a lot? Are their songs suggestive in nature, or do they insinuate things that little girls don't need to be thinking about for another 5 or 6 years)? 7) I believe it's on a school night and she's not doing that well in school to begin with. Like I said, I'm pretty sure we're going to say no, but I'd like some opinions anyway. Thanks. EDIT: Maybe I'm getting old. If she'd asked to go see the Muppets on Ice, or An Evening With Barney, we'd have said yes in a minute.
