UK CONCERTGOERS ARE IN FAVOR OF PHONE REGULATION AT SHOWS
According to an Eventbrite survey conducted by ComRes, UK concertgoers are in favor of regulating mobile phone usage at events. The survey found that 70% of British adults who had attended a live ticketed event within the last twelve months said they find it irritating when others constantly take pictures or video during live performances and that 69% would support more than minimal action to minimize the disruption. Meanwhile, about half of concertgoers admit to using their phones for photos or video during events. “You’ve got a paradox,” said Dr. Lee Hadlington, Associate Professor in Cyberpsychology at De Montfort University in Leicester in the release. “People are saying ‘it’s OK if I use my phone at an event – because I want to get this special photo – but when someone else does it, that’s really annoying.”
