I'm going to see Van Halen at MSG. What the hell does a middle-aged guy wear to a rock concert?
So here I am, as unrebel as a man can be.

Almost 40. Married. 3 young kids. Suburban house with the suffocating mortgage.

I haven't donned a jean jacket in nearly two decades. None of my jeans have holes, and if they did, I would relegate the former staples of Friday night drinking to landscaping duty. The closest thing I get to these days to giving the finger to the man is PayPalling RP a few dollars for a MoneyBomb. I am sold out, bought out, tired out, and more or less subsumed by the Borg.

All this, and I have been invited to MSG for Van Halen. Amazing seats. So what do I, dazzling urbanite, wear? Khakis and a button down? Someone would hopefully kick my ass. Jeans and a sweater? I would need to kick my own ass. But that's my wardrobe, more or less. The Slayer jacket, the laceless hi-tops, these are all 20 years in the trash. What do I do?

Don't you dare wear a jean jacket. Buy some nice jeans that are somewhat stylish but that you would wear again, no need to waste money and find a cool looking t-shirt. If you have any old t's of your favorite band(s), wear that. Oh, and have fun!

Don't stress over it too much. Jeans and a comfy shirt is fine. Just wait until you get there and see what some of those middle-aged women are wearing.

Faded loose fit Levis, cool t-shirt (if you don't have one, wear a plain white JC Penny's t-shirt and some black vans tennis shoes (not high tops)...that ought to do it! Comfortable, laid back and not going to embarrass yourself! BTW - no jacket inside...will just end up carrying it around cause its too hot!

It will be dads & their kids there.

Don't bring a 'bored out' giant flame Bic lighter - It's all digital today. & security is a little different than in the '80's

If you have a vintage concert T that fits - go with it.
Money is a medium of exchange, not a store of value.
