Publisher's Summary

There are concertgoers who like having their phones out to capture short videos or photos as they enjoy a show. Others absolutely hate this and argue that phones should be banned from these spaces. Pitch’s Whitney Jones digs into 200 years of US cultural history to get at the roots of what is “OK” at concerts, what isn’t and who gets to decide that.

Phone Free Spaces...Being Present

It's so rude to have your phones out during live performances. Phone-free spaces are a good idea...although there are people who want to take pictures and record performances, there are others who want to be in the moment. When people are on their phones they aren't in the moment...they're trying to engage in other moments. They're distracted and causing distractions for other people. People act like they will miss a part of life if they aren't able to share every moment on social media.

Interesting

It covers a not previously considered angle about audience behavior. Good that someone else thinks phones should be banned.
