W.A.S.P. - Leave Your Cameras And Phones At Home


Special announcement, from the official W.A.S.P. website:

"Dear fans, please DO NOT bring any cameras into the shows this fall as it is strictly prohibited to take pictures or recordings of the performance of W.A.S.P. Security Personnel at every venue will confiscate any cameras (including digital cameras and mobile phones with ability to record) from you before entering the venues. Please respect this request and enjoy the evening with The Crimson Idol.

Inquiries have been made as to whether The Crimson Idol will be performed only in select locations. The Crimson Idol Event will be performed every night in each of the cities in the Tour Schedule. After the Crimson Idol has been performed the band will take a 10 minute intermission and return to perform all the great W.A.S.P. classics you know and love."

I can't understand why they don't want cameras...
It's free publicity for them on youtoube and in every other site it will go up.
Are they so money-whoring that they only want to record and release the videos by themselves?

its not always good publicity for them if their videos are posted on youtube or otherwise bootlegged because bootlegs have a tendency to capture the sound all wrong. it might therefore be bad publicity.
also, i suspect, since this is WASP, that they will have some sort of complex visual show this tour and they might not want people to see it before they're meant to see it (ie. to avoid spoliers).

Yes they are, people survived before cell phones, I think youll be fine. I dont own a cellphone and I get by just fine.

But this doesnt surprise me, Blackie is an asshole. But cool concert idea though, should make for a wicked show, wish theyd come here.

I can perfectly understand their reasons for doing this. Just as juptreas said above it's not always good publicity to have a crappy quality video on YouTube and if they do something special for the fans...well then it wouldn't be that special if everyone had seen it before coming to the show

And it is possible to survive without a cell phone...if an emergency should arise, then you have the security staff to handle that, and I would be surprised if they didn't have some form af means to contact the outside world

At least hasn't been a problem before. This gig indeed can have some kind of bigger purpose for forbidding cameras.

At least they have warned the people who are attending before hand, arriving to the concert and having your things taken by the security people and thrown in a big box is a worse scenario (my camera has not been taking as good pics as it used too since the Celtic Frost concert I have been too )

Off topic questions,

K7, what did the security at the Ozzy concert do to you?

Yes people survived before cells but we don't know how many people (or money) could have been saved if there were a cell in the hand, although this is going off topic

When I get intimidated like that in advance of a show I strictly leave myself at home as well.

If you're really good you don't need to make such fuss.

While I fully understan No CAMERAS rule, I think it's totaly crazy, pointless and rude to forbid people to bring their mobile phones, especially today, when almost every mobile phone has a camera.. I mean this is just plain bullshit.

If you understand the "No Cameras" rule, and as you said almost every mobile phone has a camera today, wouldn't that be a sensible explanation as to why all mobile phones are banned as well for the show?

One night without a mobile phone won't be detrimental. After all, there's always payphones, which might I add, are usually cheaper to make calls from than mobile phones anyway.

Yeah, but what if Im supposed to find some friends of mine on the venue ? I mean, I know every phone has a camera, but its usually poor, in the best case medium quality camera, you cant make some very good pictures with it, especially with no lights.. not to mention that video clips are even worse... I do usually left my phone at home, at least if Im trying to get front rows, but still, I think its quite... wierd and not needed.

That's understandable but for one night, I think most people will survive. Perhaps just organise a place for you and your friends to meet after the show if anyone gets lost in the crowd.

And while the quality of phone cameras are usually rather poor, the video can still be deciphered regardless. I just think this issue of 'no cameras' has been greatly blown out of proportion by fans. For one night, it's really not that big of a deal.
