You should be standing at a concert instead of sitting anyways.
Thank you for repeating exactly what I said. The point is, 1 said you should stand at a concert, if they both stand OP still wouldn't be able to see. (And as to why I said "probably": my sister and I are the same height sitting whereas I'm four inches taller than her standing. It all depends on the leg:torso ratio.)
you should have climbed up on his shoulders. if you never ask then you won't get. he might have been up for it.
This. I wouldn't actually ask to get on his shoulders (kinda odd!) but ask him to switch seats with you. I've asked if I could get in front of people before because I'm so short, and 95% of the time they're great about it! Of course there's the off-chance he'll tell you to fuck off, but if so (and it's not stadium seating - be safe) stand on your chair! Or stand in the aisles. I always prefer GA standing room to avoid this issue.
After being front row/near front row in smaller venues at nearly every concert I'd been to, then to go to a huge venue and be right at the back, it really ruined the experience. I just felt like I was listening to a live performance off a cd, and couldn't really connect with the music. Maybe I've gotten too accustomed to being really close, but I'll probably never go to a venue like that again, unless I can get a standing ticket.
I feel your pain, OP. This always happens to me when I'm in the movie theaters. It's like, "yay, I found a good seat!" then a human giraffe decides to sit in front of you! D:
