Saw a lot of people with cameras at the NJ show and wish I took one. Last week we saw Aerosmith at the Veterans Arena in Jacksonville ( Great show but the acoustics suck) and there were, as usual, signs prohibiting the use of cameras. However you could, for $15, purchase disposable cameras with flash inside the arena.
I had always thought the idea behind not allowing cameras was to prevent photos being used illegally. Now it's just another way to milk fans who have already paid $300 for tickets. Well I am taking my little digital and will stick it where the sun don't shine to get it into the arena if I need to and capture a few polaroid moments. God, I hope the flash does not pop-up before I get to my seat.
