Yes, we need to talk about this a little more. We went to Phillip Phillips last night at the Agridome/Brant Center. Awesome show, loved it. The guy who won the title of American Idol last year or 2 years ago, always compared to Dave Matthews.
Why did I see a flash every 20-30 seconds during the concert? Because there was row of teenage girls in front of us taking selfies and photos of the show, why? A. It’s disturbing to others B. Musicians like to have a special moment, uninterrupted for themselves with no pressure to be ON, right at that second! Are you allowed to have your phone on inside a movie theater? No! Why? Mainly because it annoys others at the movie. So why do you need it at a concert?
How about 1 photo and terrible video and then put the phone away and enjoy the show? “OH!!! YAY I’M AT A CONCERT!” Your friends aren’t there because they probably don’t care. Why do you need to tell them what you’re doing every 20 seconds? People don’t care what you’re eating for lunch, where you are or what you’re doing every second of every day? They’re doing something completely different or else they’d be there with you!
It bothers other people. We all know you’re not about to call, face time anyone when you whip out you’re cell. 1 photo and 1 terrible sounding video is more than enough. I’ve been searched for a cell phone before entering a show. What was found? NOTHING! My phone was in the vehicle’s trunk because the band doesn’t like it and I had told people where I was going and who I was going with. I don’t want or need to tell everyone what I’m doing if they don’t want to join me.
