It's not practical, but it would be nice if photos (& video) was only permitted from the seats & designated areas at the back of GA (so it doesn't obstruct views or affect the atmosphere of the show).

You can't  enforce it but if the band asked you might be surprised...

Yeah you're right Briscoe. Plus it is such a communal experience that maybe many people would actually say "yeah, that's a good idea, let's put the phones away".

They have that big ass screen. They could put a simple message up on it 5 minutes before showtime saying something like "dear fans, please try and video and photograph the show as little as possible, for the benefit of everyone's enjoyment of the show. Yours, the bands, and those around you."

I always start off with the assumption that people are fundamentally selfish.

Well that's a given. But even if 10% of people take notice, that helps!

not really.  it just means that an extra 10% of concert goers would be irritated and not even have any photos or clips to show for it.

Exactly. Any of you stalkers, please ask the band.

I would say if you announced in advance that while people are allowed to take photos and videos, please show consideration for others and keep your phone in your pocket most of the night, most people would respond. I agree that the whole thing is ruining the live experience. People are more interested in telling their friends that they are at a U2 concert than they are in actually being in the moment at a U2 concert.
