when i am fond of some bands i would go to see such a concert, without any doubts.
i would take advantage of such event to have fun listening to my favourite tracks. it does
not really matter wheter performer is a copycat or a real musician. i would take it

in another person that he/she is copying and admiring, but on the other side it could really
piss original band members off). these bands must have put a lot of effort, nerves into it
and someone is just copying it without any trouble.
