When do we say "see a concert" and not "to hear a concert" or" listen to a concert"?

If you go to a live performance, it is usually described as 'seeing a concert', because you are able to watch the performer as well as listen to them.
If you hear the concert on the radio or a CD, etc, then you would be 'listening to the concert' but you could not say you 'saw the concert'.
