Peter Frampton Puts Unruly Fan In His Place
It’s long been a widespread policy at concert venues to forbid video & audio recording, and flash photography. A few years ago, I attended a Tim Mc Graw & Faith Hill concert at the Cajundome, and was mortified when my date stood on her chair and took flash photographs. There wasn’t a second date. Sunday night, a couple folks attending a Peter Frampton concert didn’t get the message, either, until Peter took matters into his own hands. Ultimateclassicrock.com reports, fans at his August 3rd performance at the Palladium in Mount Carmel, Indiana were told still photography would be allowed, while video recording, and flash photography would not. A couple in the front row persisted in shooting video even after being warned by security. Frampton, at one point, turned his back to them. At the show’s conclusion, Peter asked to see what they’d shot. The man handed him his phone. Frampton threw it about 150 feet behind the stage. The crowd reportedly roared its approval.
