It's a plain shame. How would he feel if somebody threw his twangy-talky box in the rafters? Actually, that's not a bad idea...

If I was the guy who got the phone thrown, I would just say that I was trying to document as much proof as possible that people are still willing to pay money to see Frampton out of fear that no one would believe me if I told them.

Good for Peter! Sounds like the fans around the front row approved as well.

there it is...portable cell phone lockers!

mandatory $10 surcharge, you can store your phone safely
or have it confiscated during the show
buried in the fine
print in your
ticket

or just better security.

PF shouldn't have had to do that.

anyone feel like doing their job with a strobe light in their face?



...why do I always end up defending people I'm not a fan of? I've heard like one PF song,...the same one we've all heard. :laugh2:

gg allin would have grabbed it and shoved it up his ass (had there been mass use of cell phones then)


(not the owners ass, his own ass)


that would have been a more interesting way to handle the situation.

Meh, I like PF but really? Can't stand the flashing lights? It's called stardom.

a read an interview lately with Jack White where he mentioned he's getting sick of playing for people because it disgusts him to look out and see nothing but cellphones aimed at him.

...I imagine other artists are starting to feel similar.
This is what Alice Cooper had to say about it:

Ok pet peeve... Call me old-school, or maybe just OLD. There's a whole show going on in front of you. It takes many talented people to put on a show. There are many sleepless nights, personal sacrifices and bruises... PUT YOUR PHONE OR YOUR TABLET DOWN. You don't need to film the show. Experience it. You are there! We are doing this for you! Take some photos sure, but you are missing the SHOW while trying to film a grainy poor quality version to share online and watch later while bumping into people in the street. Come on! #ReallyBakesMyCookies, #PutYourPhoneDown, #TechnoTard, #GetOffMyLawn

Seems odd that a life-long public performer like PF would even notice what specific audience members are doing. Let alone be bothered by a cell phone. Kinda comes with the profession he's chosen. I was at a McCartney concert recently and was amazed and amused by how many (hundreds I'd say) were watching the show through the screens of their phones.
I am hoping that one day we can shrink all of life down to a small pixelated ersatz version of reality.

I guess the fan didn't feel like Frampton did.

Lot of ways to handle that, foremost having security escort the person out of the venue. That may not be the best. Pete expect a law suit soon.
A law suit?!

America...Jesus......
