    perform (at) a concert

    My post focuses on a topic similar to that in my previous post about "to adjudicate". I have written two similar sentences using "to perform" below.

    (1) He will perform a concert next summer.

    (2) He will perform at a concert next summer.

    I have seen this verb used either with or without the preposition "at" in many online articles. Which one is correct? Please explain this. Thanks a lot.

    Only number 2 works. He can present a concert, where musicians will perform one or more works.
