That's why I stopped doing that after 2008.Whenever I'm at a live show I'm tempted to take out my phone and record some of it to remember, but whenever I do it always takes me away from the show.
Same. That's why I always makes to get a tour t-shirt and programme for every shows I attend; those are my memories. Plus, the fact whenever I listen to a live album by a band I've seen live, I immediately remember the show I attended.Not to mention I almost never look back on the pictures or video when I do. Now I might take a picture of the venue before the show, and then just stay in the moment for the rest of the show. Might not remember the show, but I'll remember the good time I had and that's what matters to me!
Ha! Just be glad this didn't happen...Also related, the one blemish at the best show experience I ever had was when I took my phone out for the encore. It was the band CHVRCHES, and I was so close I could sing along and make eye contact with the band. Then I took my phone out, I swear Lauren Mayberry started giving me a death stare once she noticed. Like "We just had an awesome show together, and you want to ruin it by being one of those fans who records instead of watching. You're dead to me now."
I mean, she probably wasn't giving me, a random guy in the audience a death stare.
Just in case though, no more phones at shows
