Madame X Tour Bans Phones

The idea of not using a phone during a concert has never been a good idea to me. I see what both sides are saying, and honestly artist should just let people use their phones. If someone or multiple people are filming the whole entire concert on their phones, then that’s on them. The artist already has your money even if they want you to pay one-on-one attention to them without a mobile device. On top of that, I’m sure it is a small number of people who actually spends well over 60 mins on their mobile devices during a musical event.

I believe you can “live in the moment” while using a mobile device as long as you aren’t stuck behind it constantly. Filming pieces or certain songs is great for memorabilia, but recording the whole experience isn’t. Just because people didn’t have smartphones and easy access to digital cameras (besides camcorders) 18+ years ago doesn’t mean that times can change. Just get over it until it becomes a real problem, and not a YOU problem.

Agreed.

At both Gaga concerts and at Cher's show I recorded dialogue and bits of my favorite songs.

The opening of the artRAVE (the first time I saw her in person), a bit of BTW acoustic, some of MJH, and her walking out before Gypsy.

I got a lot of special moments at the JWT because I knew the setlist and all. My favorite was catching everyone but Gaga singing MR together from my perspective. That video is priceless to me :wub:

There's arguments for and against the rule tbh, I guess it's her choice though.

Somebody please have mercy 'cause I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT!

Once again I’ll say it:

Hating on Madonna and calling her grandma doesn’t make you cool. It just makes you ridiculous and insufferable.

Your grandmas wish they could perform as well as Madonna at her age.

My grandma>>>Madonna

Only uneducated people can make cheap jokes, because they don't have any sense of humor. Calling M a grandmother is also part of that. Illiterate morons.

It's a good concept

I bet most of us, when we go to a concert, pass a considerable time recording or taking pictures, uploading stories, etc. than enjoying the show.

BUT I hope she has a good logistic on this. I can't imagine if people lost their phones or something

You probably get those phone pouches so you wouldn’t lose your phone, like at a comedy show.

 

I think this is a good idea because, personally, I think theater experiences are intimate things and I can imagine that as a performer it is distracting having all of those lights bobbing around. And for audience goers it’s less intrusive as well since some people will reach as high as they can to film the show. It’s obnoxious for shorties like me.

Most of concerts ban the use of phone officially but you know it never happens in reality

The Madame X shows have been promoted as super intimate, up close and once in a lifetime shows. There's probably going to be a good chuck of of the setlist that is going to change show to show and each show is going to be a different experience. Also it's Madonna's show, and she has said how much she hates it.

So yeah it kind of sucks that you don't get to have a choice, but I get it and think it's kind of cool.

She really doesn't :huntyga:

I've seen her live a few times and every time she says "record this!"


At the beginning of Enigma, a pre-recorded clip says, "Before we begin, turn all your electronic and recording devices ON." At the end, "You may now turn your recording devices off."

She's smart enough to realize phones mean more people get to see her perform aka more people want to see her live because she's confident they'll like it enough to want to see it.

I'm a person who doesn't record most of it - I like to stay in the moment - partly because I know many more people are recording it and it won't be lost.

Imagine if the JWT was lost forever. Footage of her belting a G lost forever :saladga:

but, like, if you didn't get that Enigma's message was also an ironic/sarcastic comment about how we function as a society, social media usage, and people that always on their phones during concerts :rip: 

I was front row at a lot of those shows and anytime she would reach out and get close she would get a sea of phones shoved in her face. Maybe she doesn't gives a ****, but literally every artist complains about this 

who will love me when the night is over

All artists should do this but they should also ensure that they record a progressional dvd towards during the earlier shows instead of planning to record it towards the end and the a cancellation ends up happening

My memory is ****.  The only reason I record some performances at a concert is to go back and relive that moment whenever i feel like it. Which is why a lot of people do it too.  Banning cell phones seems dumb imo. :madge:

That's actually pretty cool. I never use my smartphone in concerts and it's kinda sad how many people watch the show trough the screen rather than enjoying it fullest:rockstar:

I'm probably wrong
