Published Nov 07, 2017It's never a pleasant concert experience when you're forced to watch the show through the cellphone screen of the person in front of you. As it's known to be with Maynard James Keenan-fronted groups, using a phone during the show is a serious faux pas and will likely get you thrown out of the venue.
The policy has been implemented for A Perfect Circle's current North American tour, with the band having taken steps to tape signs warning of photo and videotaping ejections to the backs of venue seats. As Blabbermouth reports [via The Pulse of Radio], upwards of 60 attendees were tossed out of the band's performance in Reading, PA, last Saturday (November 4).
As The PRP reports, one fan asked Keenan about the decision on Instagram, which got the following response from the vocalist in the comments:
No. Recording. Of. Any. Kind. For. 25. Years. Guided experience. Unplug and and enjoy the ride.
It's not bad advice for this current day and age.
