why do people wave lights at a consent then there’s an “emotional song”?

In: 0

At a concert people used to hold up lit lighters (real flame!), but it evolved into cell phone.

It is meant as a way to bring the audience together and show appreciation for the performer. It looks pretty cool too.

As far as I know it’s to signal emotional solidarity. The concert phone lights or cigarette lighters have the same general meaning as a candlelight vigil held by the community for the death of a loved one. This appears to have come from the Catholic practice of burning candles for the dead, which in that religion is believed to amplify prayer and memorialise the deceased. I have no doubt that the idea in Catholicism has much older roots, I just don’t know what they are
