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 Kendrick Lamar 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.
