Go with a few friends. The more people there are going with you, the more your parents should trust you. They probably fear for your safety, so going with friends could ease them up a bit.

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.

You may have a chance of going, and if you do, have fun! I met William Beckett at Warped Tour last year, and he was sweet as pie! =)

im going to see them too haha

beg them
do extra chores around the house
make sure to clean up after yourself
just be a perfect child until you can go

if that doesnt work then go with a friend and tell your parents that you've gone to go study at another persons house and take a train or get a ride with someone older.

Have you ever been anywhere downtown on your own or with a friend? This is likely the sticking point with your parents and not it being a Tuesday all that much.

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.

I would talk to your parents but see if friends are planning to go so you can sit with them and be driven home or ask one of your parents or someone older ie a brother/sister/cousin relative to go and be responsible for you.

well, your parents are more likely to let you go without parental supervision if you bring a friend, so see if you can work that out first. when talking to your parents, tell them how much it would mean to you to see the band, that they are your favorite. tell them you are willing to pay for the tickets, and that they are very cheap. also let them know how close it is to where you live, and let them know that going to the concert will not affect you going to school the next day or affect your schoolwork in any way. let them know it ends early. if they wont let you go with just a friend, ask if one of them would be willing to take you and a friend. make sure you are very polite and respectful about it, have your case laid out so they can tell you took the time to think about telling them because it is important to you, and make sure you have all the information that they would need to look at. good luck!
