I'm a huge music fan and for my first semester I'm going to be in Paris at the same time as all my favourite bands European tours. I've already bought tickets for one and tickets for the next one come out on Friday.
However, all the concerts are happening in November, around the same time as the anniversary of last year's attack.
My parents are concerned about my brother (who's planning to visit me to go to the concerts) and I going and their worry is making me a bit concerned too.
I told them that it's better to buy the tickets before they sell out and that if things feel unsafe around the time of the shows, I'll sell the tickets and not go but I don't know what else to say to them to make them (and now me!) feel less worried.
I don't want what happened last year to dictate what I do with my year abroad (especially as this is the first opportunity I've had to live in a major city with a lot of concert opportunities) and I don't want to let it scare me out of doing the things I love.
Does anyone have anything I could say or show my parents (and me) to maybe make us all a little less worried? Maybe anyone who was in Paris around that time or who has been to Paris and to shows in Paris since? Or anyone who has anything that they think could be helpful? I'm open to all suggestions and eager to read your replies.
Thank you in advance!
