In brief: Noise
Excessive noise for hours above an 85 to 90 decibel level is an extremely common cause of temporary injury to the hair cells of the inner ear resulting is a ringing sound perceived in the ear. More and more young people are suffering from permanent damage to the high pitches in their ears.
So yes, after a concert, the noise, if excessive, may permanently damage your inner ears. Be careful.
