    Thanks for the research, VA. In the first article, I also like #9 ...

    9. Those who insist on recording entire performances shall inform the person behind him in advance, and allow this person the opportunity to switch seats. This process shall be repeated until an amenable (and taller) soul -- or the back of the venue -- is found.


    And the results and comments on that debate forum are very interesting.

    I want to say upfront that my search for these articles (and those above) was a generic one like 'using cell phones at concerts'. I didn't search on a slant one way or the other.

    This one makes a great point about why a performer might stop a song and ask people to stop, even if it's not the best way to handle it.

    This one uses the Eagles somewhat recent performance in New Orleans to ask the question, and the results are interesting (overwhelming against the use of phones at concerts)

    This is by a news station in DC:
    http://www.tonedeaf.com.au/339860/to...t-concerts.htm

    This one is a proponent of cell phone picture taking (and video), although #10 implies if you ARE a phone, then putting the thing down is the thing to do:
    http://www.theguardian.com/music/mus...bile-phone-gig

    This one counters each argument in the article above:
    http://www.tonedeaf.com.au/339860/to...t-concerts.htm

    I'm surprised by the sheer number of results to this and the different articles. No way can I post them all, but in general, it seems popular opinion is that it's selfish and rude to use your phone for any reason during a concert. I'm sure the average 25-year-old disagrees, but then, they are quite used to missing out on real life and living in their phones.

What other reason is there?
    Agreed. To me it screams power trip, and control issues. I'm not saying the Eagles are the only ones, but it's certainly not something I've experienced at other concerts.

    It might depend on what venue you are at and what kind of show but most rock n' roll shows are loud and people are standing, so having your phone on isn't an issue. If you are seeing someone like Barry Manilow, or perhaps Merle Haggard in a sit down venue, perhaps keeping your phone in your pocket is best. But I like to think of the Eagles as a Rock N' Roll band in the same vain as say, the Stones or Aerosmith.... And more high energy.

    And I'm not one who lives by my phone, far from it. But not being able to check it before the show, or take one or two pictures for a souvenir is totally ridiculous. People need to get with the times and realize that smartphones, tablets, gadgets, social media, etc are the future and that they need to get on the bandwagon or simply be left in the dust.

    And then there's Tim McGraw...

    It begs the question of why he goes out into the audience if he doesn't want people grabbing at him....

    Yeah, he's pretty much asking for it, but to grab and hold on......pretty stupid!

    These stars try to be fan friendly and the fans go too far. Imo!

    Now that's taking it WAY over the line. Totally agree with throwing them out.

    Just read where Peter Frampton interrupted his concert grabbed a concert goers cell phone and threw it into the audience! The person wouldn't stop videoing when they told them to.
