cameras? yes, no, maybe so? @ 08:50 pm

beaute_cramoisi:
So I'm going to my first U2 concert on Friday and I'm freaken excited(of course). But I have a question for everyone who has gone already during this tour. I just got a camera this week and I really want to bring it to the concert to take pictures but my ticket says "no cameras". Now I've been told this just means like twin lenses and professional cameras. So have any of yall had a problem bringing your simple point and shoot camera into the concert?? I really don't want to take a chance and have to deal with that. Any feedback would be great.


Sorry if this has already been asked...I have a hard time keeping up with this community. So if it has been asked if you could please just redirect me to that page then that would be great! Thanks everyone!!

Put in a plastic bag, stick in down your underwear if you don't want to take a chance.

I took my digital camera in. I uh... put it in my pants, but after I got in I found that hadn't been necessary... they looked into my purse but just at the top. It easily could've been inside there.

I'd just be careful and not make it too obvious... I'm fairly certain I even saw someone recording the ENTIRE concert just before I left.

we were not searched, but i know some venues were confiscating cameras, others were not...depends on the venue people apparentlly

I was wondering the exact same thing. Toyota Center? I'll be there.
I seriously hope they don't have metal detectors, because I'm carrying my camera in my sports bra. Do you know if they do??

No I don't know if they do or not. I REALLY want to bring my camera though!

I think you'll be better off if you don't try and hide something from them. In your back pocket or purse seems to be working for almost every arena.

It's been awhile since I've been there but I don't believe they do, not going in through GA anyway. And for any previous shows they've never had a problem with cameras being brought in- digial and disposable, that is.

See you there, hell yeah!

I've always brought mine to U2 shows, but I've never kept it out in plain site while entering. Bottom of purse works, or between boobage.

Went to all five shows at the Garden, brought my camera in every night, they *saw* it every night and didn't do a thing. Ditto the Chicago shows in May- I was just leaving it in my purse. You shouldn't have a problem.
