|Scene of the crime: ringing in my ears after a Duran Duran concert|
Portsmouth, Virginia, August 22, 2012
Here is an article in the Canadian Journal of Public Health on noise induced hearing loss in attendees of rock concerts. The survey respondents, concert goers at a Toronto rock and roll venue, reported tinnitus (ringing) and other hearing disturbances by 84.7% and 37.8%, respectively.
Okay, we had excellent seats and were only several rows from the stage, so it was worth it, but, I should have know better. I will carry ear plugs next time.
