I just posted a long-ass rant on my own blog about one of my biggest pet peeves: lack of audience etiquette.
Tonight it was the Hollywood Bowl where I sat next to a woman who had horrible breath and hummed along poorly to the music. Then the girl behind her (who had shown up late) opened up her cellophane-wrapped food and ate her dinner loudly during the first half of the performance, stopping only to clap along (out of time) to the music. She may as well have been talking on her cell phone and wearing UGGS. I wanted to stand up and klunk their heads together.
I also read MusikChyck’s account of a recent performance at the Bowl where someone sitting nearby hadn’t bathed in days and reeked of body odor. Yuck. That would ruin my concert experience, too.
The Bowl isn’t the only place where rude concert-goers go.
Got any stupid audience member stories/pet peeves to share?
