Hey man so good to hear that! smile.gif
You are going to have so much fun.
My only advice is to practice as much as you can before the concert.
On the day of the concert - just relax and have fun.
Go on stage and have in mind that no one will notice even huge mistakes or something - so smile and rock out smile.gif))

Yeah I know what you mean. But, you'll soon realize it's a great feeling. People are there to have fun listening to your music.
Try to look at the audience when playing easy parts and to interact. You'll see - it's fun! wink.gif)

Just smile on stage, and watch the girls, it'll be alright biggrin.gif

Just kiddin ofc, but stage freight will make you make mistakes and stand still like a stone, don't be 1000% sure that you won't, be prepared for it! wink.gif

If this happens, relax, continue playing the part from where you remember. I had lots of mistakes on stage, some of them huge, some of them tiny, but the audience was always giving me good ovations. Mistakes are part of the game, it's important to be unique and memorable on stage! smile.gif

smile.gif mate listen smile.gif one thing that always worked for me (and I still do it) is locking up with someone in the audience.

I look for a friendly face, or even better a guy who is hardcore up front, near the stage. Look him/ her in the eyes and allow the energy exchange to take place. You'll see that you'll build up confidence once this process builds up biggrin.gif

Give it a try and let me know how it felt!

Best of luck!


Cosmin
