I would prefer not to get my $400 digital camera taken from me in Cleveland...

Are they allowing photos to be taken at ALL shows, or will this be a venue by venue thing?

venue by venue thing just go to your arenas main website and if it says they allow them in some shows than you could take them in. Thats what happened with me in NJ. And im tkaing my camera to Nassua

Looks like it is No Camera's for the San Jose HP Pavilion concert.

General Rules say, see individual event details.
Event details for Queen+PR say : No Cameras.

The HP Pavilion site also says that it is now using Enhanced Security measures.

This is also stated on ticketmaster webpage.

I was hoping to take a few pictures to remind me of this great moment in time.

Has anyone ever been to an event at the pavilion?
If so what are the chances of getting acamera in?
Local knowledge is always the best.

Need to check out the other 2 venues in California. From an initial check Anaheim seems the best bet.

Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim policy from their website seems to be that they allow cameras as long as they don't have professional lenses.

That is unless the specific event promotor bans them. From looking at the Queen+PR event details there is no mention of them being banned. This also ties in with the fact there is nothing on ticketmaster either like the other California shows.

We saw Aerosmith in Jacksonville recently and cameras were not allowed. However, cheap disposable cameras were available for sale inside for $15. I had always thought the idea behind not allowing cameras was to protect bands for copyright purposes. Seems, as usual, it's all about being able to make a few extra dollars on top of the $300 we already spent. Not to mention meals, hotel and the $12 beer at the arena.

Hide it and take it in. I took my $800 camcorder in. I had it in my purse under my wallet. They did look in my purse but did not make me move anything. Have your wife put it in her purse under some tampons and get her in a male security guard's line to be checked. He'll not touch the tampons and you'll have your camera in. When you are inside and taking pics, just make sure security is not looking at you when you take them. It's been my experience at every American concert I've been to that security is much more concerned about the safety of the artist and fights that might break out in the audience than people taking pictures. Now filming, I'm sure if they saw you, they would tell you to put it away at least. If you film, don't use the LCD screen, that is very visable to security and it makes the battery wear down faster (thanks Barb :). Just be discreet. I managed to get away with it so I'm sure you can.

Jacksonville Camera Policy:

The permitted use of cameras varies by event. However, cameras with professional lenses, detachable lenses or detachable flashes are prohibited from the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Use of video cameras, audio recording devices and digital cameras in video mode is strictly prohibited in the arena. The use of any of these items will result in confiscation and possible ejection from the arena. These are general rules and can be overridden based on a specific request from the attraction or promoter.

Seems as though most places say 'no cameras' but once you get them in you're okay. I had one venue in St. Louis this past summer not let me in because I had my camera. So, I "took it out to my car" - translation, I went out the door and put it in the back of my pants - then came back in, went through a different security line and snapped photos until the battery died. And, I was in the front row, leaning on the stage with security right there. So, I would say just take it.

The only place I'm worried about cameras is Vegas - I think that it states right on the tickets that absolutely no cameras are allowed. So, I'll just hork from online sites once they have them posted :-)

Use your head, don't give away your camera to a security guard. They are just going to take it home and keep it. When you bought your ticket, you didnt sign a waiver for them to keep your camera. Get your head out of your ass.

even if they dont allow them just put ur camera on a setting with no flash (AaAAahaa) and put it at the botton of your pocket. Worked for me, then again my camera is that crazy sony cybershot so its skinny. Just dont let it be in a purse because they will check all throughout those

Just about every Q+PR, Brian May Band, SAS Band, etc., gig that I have attended allowed cameras. Just nothing gigantic and professional. Yes, at times, I have had to sneak it in, and/or security didn't know they'd be allowed in, but once in, photography was allowed. The only recent exception seems to have been Japan where they were filming. It seems to be a decision by the individual event, and Queen, etc. seem to be ok with cameras and photography by fans. Heck, they request it.

Bring your camera. I'm bringing mine. We'll all go down together!

what will happen if they confiscate your camera / camcorder? will you get it back after the show?
has anyone experiences? i saw a lot of audience-shot dvds on dime so it is probably not so difficult in usa.

Worcester, MA:


Q. Can I bring video or still cameras into the arena?
A. For most events, at the request of the artist, video cameras and flash photography are not permitted.

Sucks, don't it? DAMN!

For the NJ concert last October I put my camera hidden inside a bag of maxi pads. I told my girlfriend to hide it inside her bag, because security guards would be too embarassed to ask her to open the bag.

Once inside the arena, people were taking pictures and from what I could see no one's camera was taken away.
