Newly Realized Concert Pet Peeves

So. This weekend I took Nick away to a Bed and Breakfast for the weekend (pics to come), and we spent the evening at the Jason Mraz Concert!
{very low quality picture from the concert (stupid iPhone front camera)}

Now, don't get me wrong, we had a GREAT time at the concert. Jason Mraz was great live, and he sings our song, so it was super romantic. But, while I was there I realized two of my biggest pet peeves thanks to some of my fellow concert-goers. 

Kai's Concert Pet Peeves
(list to most likely increase over the years)

1. Technology has kinda ruined concerts a bit, no? I'm all for taking a few pictures, and maybe recording your favorite song. But the couple in front of us had their iPhones posted in front of their faces recording the WHOLE concert!!! (and they were together? So why would they both record the whole thing? lol)

I could be wrong, but isn't the point of going to concert to enjoy the live music?? Put your phones down for a second and live in the very groovy moment..sheesh...

2. Now I understand the need to stand-up and rock out at your favorite concert (although Jason Mraz isn't a very "rock out" kinda vibe if you ask me), but there is a very big catch here. If you are in a seated area of the arena, and NOBODY else is standing, then you shouldn't be either! You are clearly blocking the view from the people behind you! Be courteous! 

I really can't stand when people don't consider other people around them....it's about respect for other's experience as well as your own...

And that is all I have to say about that. 

Do you agree? Should people adhere to some kind of rules while at a concert???

I haaaaaate when people insist on standing at concerts! I am pretty short so it ruins my view, and plus, it's way more comfortable sitting down! So frustrating.

I totally agree! I saw florence and the machine the other week and almost killed everyone around me. it's hard to enjoy live music when the jerk next to you is filming with his iphone the whole time with the flash on. seriously. I feel your pain.

totally agree -- i usually opt for the seated areas at concerts because in the standing areas....everyone is taller than me!

I agree with you on #2. People are so annoying when they're standing the entire time, yet everyone isn't. Are you blind people???
