I asked this question on a different forum and thought it was really interesting to hear the different stories some members there had.

So I thought why not ask here? - Did you (or someone you know) try and sneak tape recorders into concerts in the 70s, 80s, or 90s?

NOPE!! I went and bought the albums before the concerts so what would be the purpose of hauling a tape recorder to a concert. Nowdays.. Holy Shit.. You see everyone holding up cell phones.. :wtf:

That sounds better than the cell phone thing. I'm about the only one at the concert I feel these days that isn't having their phone out and actually enjoying the concert for what it is. These people and their artificial ******* lives ran on quick dopamine rushes is just sad.

I never snuck a tape recorder into a concert but while I was still in school, a friend was a bootleg trader so I could get my hands on various shows.

No....never really crossed my mind in the late 60's ,70's , 80s when I was going to concerts.
I have gone to shows in 90s, and early 2,000s but I often went to smaller venues where it just wasnt done. Havent been to an indoor venue in almost 20 years.

I can see snapping a couple pictures, but holding them all the time is annoying. Most concerts are available on YouTube or you can buy the DVD. Why ruin the concert for yourself and everybody around you? That's just my thoughts.
