Is my 7 year old daughter old enough for a Sheryl Crowe Concert?

I believe she is, based on her maturity level and my belief that SC and band won't be far too loud and there won't be an absurd risk of second hand "smoke" if you will.



Any mom out there care to opine? Please keep in mind it's Sheryl Crowe we're talking about, not, Snoop Dog or Metallica.

I would be more concerned about the noise coming from the audience, than anything else. Have you ever been to a concert? The fans get pretty fricking loud. The last time I went to a concert, the only thing stopping me from taking my daughter was the fans. So loud. Just make sure she has proper hearing protection, and she'll be fine. At the end of the day, you are the parents and you are the ones who have to make the judgement call.

I wouldn't do it. I've never known any concert to not be loud or any concert early enough that I would feel comfortable taking a 7 year old. I, myself, have never been to any concert except a couple of Chris Tomlin ones though, so I am probably not the one to ask.

Well. I think we can close the thread on this.



Just spoke to the box office. This is a theatre venue. Seats 2200 people, while there is a bar area segregated. It's a high end venue. Box office manager said she had seen Sheryl Crow there herself in the past and confirmed all I had thought. No smoking, No unruly behavior would ever be tolerated. She said there were many children at the last performance and that she believed Sheryl Crow was, if anything, a role model for young women and girls.



All patrons are escorted to their seats by ushers. This is the same venue where the Opera and Symphony events are held. I was assured this is not only a wonderful venue but an appropriate artist to bring my daughter to see.

i didn't say "only for adults" but it is meant for adults. perhaps it is that i shelter my kids more than other parents, Kind of like how i would never take my children to a PG 13 movies, until I myself have seen it. you do not know what is going to happen in this concert... just because you have been to a cheryl crow concert before. question- do they serve alcohol at this concert?

What spcifically do you feel to be inappropriate? Please don't just say "only for Adults", as it's a general open to the public event. Please cite what you specifically feel are the inappropriate factors.



I'm not picking a fight, honestly. Just want to make sure we as parents are not overlooking something. I don't think we have. I've seen no reports of Sheryl Crow's concerts being too loud, ever marked by violence, profane language and nothing unsavory about her or her concerts, in any way.. so help me out and articulate what your true problem is with this.



I've seen Sheryl Crow before, I'm curious if you have and when?

well if it ok with both parents then you shouldn't have to ask for opinions... but i still stand by what i said. those types of concerts are not meant for your children. regardless of how "mature" they are. now if it were a concert meant for young teens, i would say agree that it was appropriate. but it's not, it's meant for adults and i find it extremely inappropriate. but i am not the mother of this child, and my opinion holds no bearing

Well thank you for your thoughtful opinion. And I remind myself, I did ask for opinions.



I failed to mention that both parents believe it's ok and are in agreement. I've confirmed with the Venue (Kravis Center in West Palm Beach Florida, that no smoking is permitted, strictly enforced.)

no, she is only 7, WOW absurd risk or mild risk, it is STILL a risk. I would not allow my VERY mature 9yo go to a concert like that. and if their father asked if he could take them, i would COMPLETELY flip out and do everything in my power to make sure that he had very limited time with his children from then on out.
