    define 'professional camera' please....

      charmaine.louw.104 - 2012-11-06 13:01

      This is exactly the same as that they said about U2 so I never took a camera with and you should have seen some of the camera's I saw going in there - I would also like to know.

      nads.delange - 2012-11-06 13:06

      Big Concerts defined this as any camera with a detachable lens.

      jacques.budler - 2012-11-06 13:14

      I believe big concerts defines it as a camera with detachable lense

  • theMichaelHawthorne - 2012-11-06 12:54

    Lol thank god I outgrew this band.

      jacques.budler - 2012-11-06 13:16

      You will find these rules apply to almost all concerts in stadiums and other places, should your band of choice come I am sure these rules will apply there.

      dracolusus - 2012-11-06 14:45

      Its one of those things, and by that I mean a Big Concerts thing mostly. Due to the fact that they usually only bring out rock acts WELL after their peak time.

      ryan.macquet - 2012-11-06 16:01

      @Dracolusus - Lady Gaga is way past her peak then in your opinion? And @theMichaelHawthorne, The band out grew you my friend.

  • Billy - 2012-11-06 13:00

    you can broadcast from your phone btw...

      jacques.budler - 2012-11-06 13:16

      true, but not in any true manner that people would pay money to stream it, especially if you are not right on the fence.

      burningdogz - 2012-11-06 13:26

      I have been at a few rock concerts and seen many more phone footage, and they all are poor quality.The sound is simply too much for the poor phone and the lights too bright. Still, with the advancement in phone technology this could become a serious problem very soon.

  • madalha.roets - 2012-11-06 13:01

    Don't stage diving, mosh, climb or crowd surfing. At a rock concert??...Think they mixed up these dos and don'ts with the Lady Gaga show.....FTW

  • avanwyk2 - 2012-11-06 13:14

    You must love South African's sense of humour on the comments. Nice going guys!

  • lydonmcg - 2012-11-06 13:15

    That's a poorly written list. Who edits these things? The grammar is atrocious.

  • edmund.deane.37 - 2012-11-06 13:30

  • conrad.deklerk - 2012-11-06 13:32

    By "horn" I assume you mean one used as a wind instrument?

  • MatthewHealing - 2012-11-06 13:50

      klipkop.degroote - 2012-11-07 10:39

      what is a companion dog?! English a strange language.

  • chermon.lingham - 2012-11-06 20:30

    I do not think these organisers know what a rock concert is... No moshing or crowd surfing or even stage diving... It seems like they are arranging an Opera and not a Linkin Park concert...

  • Jean-Pierre Wolf - 2012-11-06 21:12

    ha ha ha ha who brings a lawn chair,braai and umbrella to a rock concert.

      klipkop.degroote - 2012-11-07 10:39
