Assume for a moment that the Western artistic way of life did not become dominant for the last century.

How long do you think the world would have to wait before the technology and attitude would allow rock concert (open air or otherwise) to become popular and epic?

A very famous half Pakistani-English, gay rocker:

I find it difficult to imagine a Chinese Confucian/Legalist rocker.

The world's had the equivalents since the dawn of time, so rock concerts would've came about as soon as the genre did. It's debateable whether the genre would've arisen, though: I see its roots as specifically Anglo-American.

In what way would the world not be a better place without them? (kidding, I like Rock) There'd be concerts of other genres. I guess Cleveland Style Polka would dominate for a couple more decades.
