Play with your own instrument at the concert

This seems completely weird not to play with your instrument, and I understand this.

But, do you really need ALL your gears ?

Imagine you are a drummer in a band (I can, I am one). What do you really need : your sticks, your snare, your ride, your foot pedal ?

It can enter in a back bag, and if we add the guitar, the bass, and some multi-effects, it can enter in a single car, in a single trip. But you do it with 2 or 3 cars, or 2 or 3 trips, using gas, and putting yourself in traffic jams. Do you really need your own lights ? Your bass drum ? All your toms, mics feet, audio amplification, … ? The question is the same as for rehearsals. Does everyone really need to get to the rehearsal by itself, with its own car.
