    This should be interesting. The Ryder Cup (US vs. Europe in golf) is banning everyone from taking photos or video (however, texting and talking on the phones is allowed) This would be like telling fans in an NFL stadium not to take pics or video, except instead of a stadium, the fans are spread out over 18 holes. Good luck enforcing this stupid rule! The article mentions that Kate Bush asked for this last week, too.

    It will be interesting to see how that works.

    Cell phones are actually banned from many golf tournaments in the states or they designate special cell phone areas on the course for spectators. They do bag searches and pat downs and will kick people out for using them.

    I don't know the extent to which they're banned at European courses.

    Although I feel it's a bit draconian to not be able to check your phone during intermission, I've had a few of my last concert experiences ruined by devices blocking my view all night that I've come around on the whole thing.

    iPads/tablets shouldn't be allowed period. They're the worst culprit.

    I think they are being too hard about it, but, knowing their strict enforcement, if you need to use your phone just go to the lobby!

    The last line says it best:

    " A better approach might be for fans and band to use common sense and, you know, just take it easy."

    HaHa, Brooke, we know common sense is rare!

    At both shows last weekend I was able to use my phone up until show time and during intermission, for which I was grateful.

    Hopefully that's the case tonight. Taking my dad tonight and he was a little cranky when I told him the rules (and that we have to follow them sitting right by the stage).

    Getting ready to watch some baseball and just saw a commercial for T Mobile. They were filming a concert, actually filming people in the audience filming the concert, and promoting this as a good thing. Something people can do when they buy their phones and use their network. They honestly think this is a good thing!! I mean, look at this! I took a picture of the TV, and so it's not the best picture, but still, pretend you're in row 20 and trying to see the stage. What do you see? If you want to see the band, you need to view it through the phones in front of you, or watch it on YouTube the next day. They are encouraging this...



    This is their most recent Facebook ad... They didn't bother drawing in a band because hey, you wouldn't be able to see them anyway.
