Concerts can help you add years to your life.

That’s according to a recent study by Patrick Fagan, an expert in behavioral science, and O2, which is a concert venue.

“Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness, and wellbeing—with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key,” Fagan says. “Combining all of our findings with O2’s research, we arrive at a prescription of a gig a fortnight [every couple of weeks], which could pave the way for almost a decade more years of life.”

They came to the conclusion by comparing the feelings of attendees with other activities associated with happiness.
