Went to see Marilyn Manson and had my purse searched and was frisked head to toe both front and back. My husband brought the camera and they told him to leave, but he explained that we didn't have a car there (we took a taxi) so instead she took the memory card out and kept it during the show. What upsets me about this is that numerous people were taking pictures with their phones as well as small digital cameras just like our Cybershot. Why didn't someone take their memory cards?! And why is it ok to take pics with your phone, but not with your camera? I don't get it. Another thing that made me angry is that on their website it states that there is a designated smoking area. What it doesn't state is that it's only open at designated times for a designated time period...like 10 minutes! Unfortunately for me, being a smoker, the only time it was open was after the opening act and before Marilyn took the stage!! Guess I should've joined the rest of the smokers on the floor who were lighting up left and right...and not just cigarettes!!! It would take a pretty big name to bring me back here again. Oh yeah, and the beer selection sucks; Bud Light, Coors Light or Heinekin. We opted for the latter. It's all $5/can.
