Society’s biggest threat isn’t capitalism, but in fact the concert terrorists who hold up phones—or worse, IPADs!—throughout an entire show to capture photos and video for Instagram, Snapchat and the like, thus ruining the live experience of being at a show.


Instead of taking like a couple snapshots or an occasional quick video and then putting the phone away, some of these fans spend the entire concert viewing the show through their tiny machine instead of their eyeballs. Adele complained about this phenomenon during a concert on Sunday in Italy, during which one woman appeared to be shooting a feature film.

“I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera because I’m really here in real life,” said Adele. “You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera.” She went on: “Can you take your tripod down. This isn’t a DVD. This is a real show. I’d really like you to enjoy my show because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”

Here, now that you’re done reading a post about the video, watch this video of the crowd applauding Adele for scolding the woman for taking the video.

Unless there is a specific no recording policy on the ticket, or you’re actively getting in fronty of others or ruining their experience, who gives a fuck how much of a concert you record? Why should Adele care about what a few fans choose to do at the show they paid to go see, unless as stated above she has a specific no record policy. I will be in the audience for WWE Monday Night Raw next week with a fully charged Iphone and my portable recharge pack. I may record the entire show from my seat since I don’t know what order guys will come out in and I want to make sure I don’t miss anything good. Now unless WWE has a policy against this or I am interfering with someone else, which is funny considering all the damm signs people bring to these things, why should Cena or Paige or any of the WWE Superstars came about what I am doing?
