Musicians And Bands Who Don't Allow Phones At Their Shows

Concert-goers are often tempted to record or photograph their favorite shows in order to remember them forever. Certain bands, however, completely forbid phones at their concerts. Those musicians publicly scold flash-happy fans.

In some ways, their phone bans are perfectly understandable. A lot of performers want their fans to fully experience music as it happens. Unsurprisingly, a lot of those bands are incredibly hipster. Some of the musicians who don't allow phones at their shows can go a tad berserk if they see someone violating their wishes, though. In fact, some of their reactions qualify as total rock and roll breakdowns. So before you see another artist, you may want to check if phones are allowed.
