Is it appropriate to go to a concert on Sunday?

Is it acceptable to go to a concert on Sunday? Specifically I am wondering about rock or metal concerts. Would attending a concert where bands speak and act questionably take away from the reverence due on the Lord’s day?

Thanks you :slight_smile:


If the music at such concerts is unacceptable for a Christian listening to on Sunday, then it is unacceptable at any time.
