Just a general question, I will be at the Beacon on the 19th, 20th and 21st and I was wondering if they allow cameras to be brought in? Can anyone let me know if this is acceptable? Thanks,
Greg

Nope. You will not get in with one.

Im not sure on official policy, but for what its worth: I was patted down, but they didnt catch the camera, so not sure what they would have done (ie. not let me in with it?). I was up front and i took a few photos (I never use a flash, particularly when im up front, and i dont hold the camera up so it gets in the way,so it shouldnt have disturbed anyone). Security guard told me to put it away. I pointed out that there were a ton of people taking flash photos and he said no photos at all. He was actually pretty cool and later i asked him politely and he said I could.

I think you need to be careful, but you can probably get away with it (but you may want to see what others have to say).

Check the thread under Beacon security - a guy said they found a camera and a large lens and let him with it anyway.... I wouldn't bet on it, though.

Yeah, I was wondering the same and was going to post to see what folks experience was on the first few nights before I fly over next week. From what's been said I'll leave the SLR and bring the compact.

At Van Morrison last week at the Beacon they had signs up all over 'no photography' and the security was watching for anyone trying to get a picture. Then at Levon's concert, there were no signs, and everybody was freely taking photos. (flash and without flash).
Were there any signs posted in the lobby and bar areas last night?

I dont think the band cares (check out the FAQs - so long as no flash and no professional photography equipment, they are cool). I think its a Beacon thing (though they seem to be inconsistant with the policy).

Then again, the FAQ was from a few years ago, so maybe things have changed.

In the past, the Brothers always allowed picture taking. Odd that they would change their minds about that now.......

No they haven't.

The official policy is no photos period.

I think it sucks, but that's the way it goes.

They supposedly only allow "working press".

Kirk has said before that "the guys are old and sweaty" don't need anyone taking those pictures.

In Niagara Falls a few years ago, I walked right into the showroom with my DSLR on my shoulder, no problem.

I took some shots from my seat, then went up front when they started letting folks walk up and take a few pics.

I shot one of Warren & the usherette told me no cameras.

Their were folks standing right next to me shooting away with flash, one guy using a camcorder.

No proble3m with them, but I couldn't use my Nikon.

I went back to my seat, took a few subtle shots and the seat Nazi came back and told me to put the camera down.

Unreal.

Do you think the band has a problem with it? or is it just Kirk?

Beacon website says camera policy for concerts is "at the discretion of the artist".
