Pet Peeves, I Have a Few #6

Even though I'm a pretty mellow guy, I do have a few pet peeves. It bugs the hell out of me when people are talking during a concert. Pretty soon, every one is talking, enough that the frontman might as well ask if anyone is listening. Obviously this is a problem at small, intimate shows, but those are the best. Whether you've paid eight bucks or 25 bucks, you still paid money to watch a band. So why waste that hard-earned cash by talking the whole show? If you're going to talk the whole time, kindly go outside. Or just be quiet and watch the show. I'm actually there to see the band, not blab the whole show. Sorry, but it just bugs me.

This is bad behaviour, no doubt. The musicians should stop playing if this happens.

I actually never thought about that. They should stop playing.

@teamfreak16 I've heard about actors who stopped performing a play on stage when someone in the audience started talking.

@MALUSE - Huh. Luckily, I never saw that when I used to go the theatre in Denver.

That is a very familiar pet peeve.

All too common, unfortunately.

That's really infuriating... I don't understand why to even come for the show when you only are going to talk?

Exactly. And if it's because you don't like the band, leave.

@teamfreak16 Then again why buy the tickets if you dislike the band?? They just have this bad habit.....

@Daljinder - Oh, sorry, what I meant is if they think the band is having an off night or something. I've seen a few shows like that. I still shut up and watch, even though I'm kind of disappointed.

I can definitely see how that would be annoying. You should ask the people who are talking for a refund. Maybe they would be quiet then, or at least have a weird look on their face.

I wonder if the venue would get sued or something if they kicked the offenders out.

@teamfreak16 I could see that happening also. I never put anything past people these days.

It's very rude really. At our concerts of about 100 people, we don't seem to have this problem. They're all there because they want to be (I guess most people at concerts are) and they pay attention - except when a kangaroo comes down to drink at a nearby watering point. :)

What would be cool is if they could make the kangaroo part of the show somehow.

@teamfreak16 Unfortunately they're not that quiet - not yet anyway. But we're working on it.

It makes you wonder why they go - they could stay home and chat, couldn't they?

It seems that people today have very little concern for others. Most think a bit too highly of their own dear selves.

It's rude and so not necessary.

People talking during a concert -- or a movie -- makes me furious. Which is why I prefer to watch stuff at home.

I prefer to watch movies at home. The last movie I saw in the theatre was the remake of True Grit. But I can't stay away from live music.

@teamfreak16 J and I went to see the new SW in the cinema, but he insisted on watching it in 3D, which was an utter waste for me as I have partial vision. I really do prefer being at home to watch film. I can pause it if I need to.

@Telynor - did you still have to wear the 3-D glasses? I'd imagine it wouldn't be comfortable wearing them if you didn't need them.'

What is sad is that I've been to more than one show where it's happened.

This bothers me too. Those tickets are expensive and people talking behind me ruins the experience for me. Some thing with movies.

I can't remember what band I saw the last time it happened. But shut the hell up, you know?
