hmm, interesting. You have to put your phone in a locked pouch to enter the show, and if you want to use your phone, you can go to an area to get it unlocked but have to relock it before you go back to your seat.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I wouldn't want to watch my amateurish recordings anyway. I'd just download a professionally pirated show later if I really want to see it again.

there's so many types of small cameras that could easily be smuggled into the event if somebody REALLY wanted to pirate the show. This kind of ridiculousness just turns me off from attending because it's just a nuisance to have to wait in line to get these pouches and then wait in line again to unlock the pouch.

You keep the pouch with the phone inside with you during the show.

How are you supposed to carry this huge pouch with you while trying to enjoy the concert/show?

Barbra Streisand has been doing this for many years.
She travels with her own private security personnel that takes over where ever she's performing.
I had a run in with him in the late 90's in LA and he is a real scum bag with average comedy at best.

Really slow to get in, but pretty quick to get out. Show was excellent!
