Do You Feel Like I Do? Rocker Peter Frampton Threw an Obnoxious Concert-Goer's Cell Phone into the Rafters
There really is such a thing as a dick too big…
English 70s rocker Peter Frampton is currently on tour, and at a recent Carmel, Indiana show, he took care of enforcing his own No Cameras policy. No worries though, this isn’t really a case of a rock star with an overblown ego; in fact, it was a particular pair of concert attendees who were the dicks. Though before Frampton’s show began a “No video recordings or flash photography” announcement was made (this was an intimate venue), a couple of latecomers missed that bit. The couple — who were seated front-row center — immediately whipped out their cell-phones and began taking both flash photography and video, so Peter first used his words to try to dissuade them: “No. Don’t do that. Stop.” You might think that when the person one came to see in concert makes such a request, people would listen…but not these dolts. So, after several songs, Frampton (“I’ve never seen an artist so upset”) walked over to the people and asked to see the photos they’d been taking, the guy handed over his phone and Frampton tossed it into the rafters, to the sound of audience cheers.
Frampton comes alive, indeed.
