Etiquette at gigs… April 16, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
At the Sabbath concert earlier in the year I was half-amused to find a fairly constant stream of people going back and forth from their seats to get beer. Given the group played for perhaps an hour and forty minutes and this was their last tour it seemed a little excessive to miss even five minutes of the gig for the sake of a pint (it was over by 10.40 so plenty of time to get more alcohol in if that was what was required). Even more amusing were the people checking Facebook and twitter throughout the evening. The sense of people only being half there was very strong. Any one seen this phenomenon more widely? I don’t recall it so bad at other gigs I was at in the last year or so.
