Savages latest to ban camera phones at their gigs

After Yeah Yeah Yeahs made it explicitly clear to their fans that camera phones are forbidden at gigs, London post-punk outfit Savages appear to have taken on a similar stance on iPhone wielding crowd members. A sign at one of their recent gigs emphasises the point that the use of camera phones ‘prevents all of us from totally immersing ourselves’. Sure there are those who want to capture the moment forever via digital means, but  there are still many of us who’ll get behind the ban in hope of no longer having to watch a show through a cluster of minute screens.

Savages will be on tour in the UK in May. No cameras allowed. Here are the dates:

01/05/13 – Sheffield – Queen’s Social Club
02/05/13 – Glasgow – SWG3
03/05/13 – Liverpool –  Sound City
04/05/13 – Leeds – Live at Leeds Festival
05/05/13 – Norwich – Arts Centre
07/05/13 – Nottingham –  Bodega
08/05/13 – Bournemouth – Old Fire Station
