Kendrick Lamar Said to Be Banning the Use of Cell Phones and Digital Cameras From His Concerts – blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re planning on attending a #KendrickLamar concert, you might want to read the rules first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Guardian, the Grammy award-winning lyricist will now be prohibiting the use of cell phones at his live performances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reportedly, the new policy was established in order to “protect Kendrick’s valuable brand and ensure that the appetite for tickets remains keen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Additionally, it is also said that professional photography won’t be allowed either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this stipulation doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. Cell phone and digital camera restrictions at concerts aren’t unusual. This actually happens quite often. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alicia Keys, Guns N’ Roses, and the late Prince are all known for banning mobile devices from their shows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of course, though, if you spend your hard-earned money on a ticket, naturally, you’re going to want to capture footage for the sake of keeping good memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, by putting the ban on filming/snapping photos, artists are hoping to keep the audience members more engaged and to provide potential attendees with an even better, enjoyable, and exclusive experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Currently, Kendrick is on the European leg of his DAMN tour, which kicked off on February 7th in Dublin.
