Interesting list. Do people really try to go to concerts with bullhorns? I thought it was strange that only chopped veggies allowed, but whole fruit can be brought in. At least they allow some food and drink. Lots of places won't allow anything, so you have to buy from vendors there.
Just checked it out, they do have food there which is a good thing for the Sound Check people since thy will have a few hours to kill between the sound check and concert and are not able to leave.

Thanks for the info Jen and I do believe it's very similar to most venues. Many "outdoor" venues have more strict rules than indoor venues (which always was interesting to me).
SPAC in NY has a set of rules listed on their site and it was interesting to read that LiveNation concerts does not allow any alcoholic beverages at all (because they sell it inside the venue), yet the concerts for the orchestra (Philadelphia Orchestra in this case) allows for the wine and food, etc. - talk about stereotyping a crowd, huh? But I am left wondering - this is a LiveNation concert but it's with an orchestra - so, can we bring in a half-sandwich and a half-bottle of beer??? :-]
For Laura - I worked more than 14 years in concert/event security and I could write a book on the things that people bring to a show/event, the stories that they tell and the manner in which they bring in their items. Bullhorns are usually more commonly brought to sporting events - football games, basketball games (where they're still not permitted, but people always seem to mysteriously get them in to the event).
One of my favorite "excuses" was at the Army/Navy Football Game many years ago - of course, it's the biggest college football game in town and the President of the US attends (sits on the Navy side for the first half of the game, sits on the Army side for the second half). Anyway, of course there is "no re-entry" for most events. I was working at one of the gates, the game was about to begin - 4 men came to me to ask if they could go to their car to get a diaper bag - it seems that the man's wife had brought the baby to the game (and of course was sitting in the stands) but mysteriously forgot to bring the baby's diaper bag - full of bottles, diapers, etc. all the necessary staples for a baby). I spoke with these gentlemen for nearly 20 minutes (knowing that they would not be going outside) - I was so entertained by the fact that these 4 men came up with this bright idea - all 4 men were going to walk to the car to carry back this baby's diaper bag. We all had a good laugh, including the men. I told them if they could come up with a better story, I would allow them to leave the building for 15 minutes (knowing that it would take them longer to go to the parking lot!). They never did return.
Thanks again - I'm getting super excited and can't wait for our date in SPAC! (and Camden, NJ).

Thanks for the info Jen. I see that you are allowed small personal cameras unless prohibited by show. I haven't seen anything on the tickets or web that says that they're prohibited. So does anyone know if we are good to go on the cameras? Bummed I can't bring my bullhorn.

re: bringing in food and beverages
The way I read it Ela,(Jen's post) is that fruit and veggies are allowed in, but 'both' must be sliced.
Now this leads me to question, why just these food items? I understand their thought process, the venue staff does not need for anyone to be tossing tomatoes and such at the stage, and when did carrots, if left whole, turn into lethel weapons.
How odd that fruit and vegetables are the only food items that are mentioned. What if I want a granola bar?
Lore, how are you ever gonna cut up that blueberry? ha

Moonstorm, I'm guessing the slicing of fruits and vegetables is to keep people from filling them with alcohol or other stuff not allowed? Which is probably why they mention that, at some shows, they may open the lids on some of the sealed non alcoholic beverages to make sure they are still factory sealed. Not to mention the worlds more current security fears.
Pat. LOL, how many men does it take to get a diaper bag?
