There's a band coming to town to play a concert.
They won't let you take pictures of the event, but that's their prerogative.

Bands hire media managers to deal with this type of thing.
No photos, no videos, no sound recordings. Pat downs, the nine yards.

Of course the first thing that comes to mind is how do they cameras in cell phones.
Best guess is they don't do anything to stop them. Fine, litter YouTube with that stuff.

I'm told only two persons are allowed to take photographs "in front of the fence" at this particular show. One from the news paper, the other from the organization arranging the concert. I was trying to get a press pass but both these holes are taken.

It gets a bit more interesting: they are only allowed to photograph for the first three songs. "After that, the cameras have to be put away." I'm guessing this is because they will be opening with some old-time favorites and playing some new never-before-heard content afterward.
