From all reports it is easy to take and use the small consumer type of cameras which fit in your pocket. The exeception was the 2 Tokyo Domes shows where it seems the venue didnt want people using cameras, and thus now we dont have as much great footage from Japan.

SO PLEASE.... take your camera and 2-3 batteries and 5-10 SD cards and capture as much as you can.... THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!

PERFECT, I am looking forward to your great video.


It is so sad when live music is allowed to evaporate, never to be heard again, especially those special, one time only, moments

It is pretty easy to take shots, however I would be a bit careful with longer videos. They tend to stop that. I mean they never did me as I was only doing like 1 minute shots to try the new camera, but they did stop people when they had constantly the camera holding for longer than a song. Remember that cameras with exchangable lenses are not permitted.

I find those can be a bit of a neck strain as well, by around the second song in.

Thanx for this info. When The Rolling Stones come to a place near me, then I buy better not a Pit Ticket, because I want as much from the show as possible on video.
