Hi all,

Kids are never too young to love music and enjoy it!
Have a look at this video. My son is the singer of this this band of kids between 11 and 14, doing a cover of "The Sky Is A Neighborhood". Hope you like it as much as I do...

Enjoy!

My boys were 7 & 12 at their first concert and 8 &13 for their first FF show.They will be coming with us next June to London for their fourth FF show.
I think if you take them you need to consider their needs and how it could affect your concert experience. We've always stayed towards the back and where they had a decent view also some sort of ear protection-defenders once and now earplugs.Their safety and wellbeing has to be your priority.
The youngest(14) has been inspired that much he now has his own band doing covers of Nirvana,Biffy Clyro,RATM,SOAD,Muse etc and their own material.So to me it's been an amazing thing to do as a family and now an education into what a band goes through in order to perform,record etc.

My(then 8 year old) made me proud when he knew the words to 'Young Man Blues' at his first FF gig and most adults around had no idea what it was!

My son will be 7 when I take him to his first show this summer. Each kid is different. Mine is just ready. As others have said. Get a seat. I pushed to get better seats so he could see.
