In order to let them make you go, do extra things around the house. Do your chores without being asked to. Do extra good on your homework & studies. Be responsible with things. Be good, & even suck up if you have to.

Unless you know the subway system and have streetsmarts being alone downtown after or before a concert at age 14 especially if female is a concern.
Some venues actually have lounges for parents to stay in during the concert. I would look in to that if the band is playing for a teen audience and not an adult one to see if the arena is doing that for parents and just seating the teens in the arena.
The tickets are $20 right? Why not have a friend who wants to go approach your parents and offer to buy tickets for you as well so you'll be with people you know and have a ride to and from?
If it's from 7:30-10:30 that's fine or should be if it's 20 minutes away and you can always do your homework from 4 until the time you leave.
