73% Of Gig Goers Said They Don’t Mind Phone Use At Shows

Ticketing outlet Skiddle​recently surveyed 1,200 people between the ages of 16 and 30, and a convincing 73% said they don’t really care if people use their phones at shows.

Get ready for a fun couple of sentences, statistics fans:

Ticketing outlet Skiddle recently surveyed 1,200 people between the ages of 16 and 30, and a convincing 73% said they don’t really care if people use their phones at shows. According to Music Radar, around 50% of that 73% said they film stuff to relive the experience after the show, and about 25% of that 73% said they wanted to share the footage on social media.

The 27% who were clear that they didn’t like phones at shows said they thought were phones distracting and that they take away something from the experience. Of that 27%, 8% said they just feel like photography is disrespectful to the artist.

Recently our old pals A Perfect Circle caused a bit of internet drama by chucking 60 concert goers out of a show in Reading, Pennsylvania. We’re interested to see how you all feel about this in the Facebook comments… Keep it civil, guys.
