Actually concerts and concert halls exist because of everything else in the universe. You should know what I am talking about. This is the concept of dependent origination in Buddhism.
The idea is just this. Any "thing" consists of parts. Each of those parts consist of other sub-parts. Each of those sub-parts exists because of other sub-subparts. And it goes on and on, until we see that the entire universe is interconnected, and nothing has any inherent existence.
Eg when I hold a book in my hands, it is there because of the paper; the ink; the words; the author; the publisher; the trees from which the paper came, the woman who gave birth to the author; and her own mother; and the light and water that nurtured the trees that produced the paper; and the inventor of the printing press etc etc etc etc.
Now, the LOA actually works by utilising the interconnectedness of all things. Follow the concept of dependent origination far enough, and you will see that your thoughts are interconnected with all that is. That is how thoughts can draw events, circumstances, people, things, experiences, resources etc etc into your reality, even via routes that are highly improbable, seemingly impossible or simply unknowable.
THINK ... and the thought begins a chain process, proceeding along the routes that join everything to everything else in the universe.
