I don't think that's quite the assertion I made; and if it appeared that it was, then I was unclear.Someone made the assertion you vibes at big shows can't be replicated at small clubs
My experience is heightened by being in a large crowd the majority of whom are enjoying the music. For me, that can't be replicated by a small crowd, even if the music is good and everyone is into it.
Which isn't to say that such an experience is bad, by any means. It's just that the happy teeming mass of people is, for me, a rush in and of itself.
