    Off topic, but Jack White has banned cell phones from his shows from his upcoming tour. Several standup comedians have done this for the last couple of years, requiring you to put them in the pouches when entering and have designated areas where you can use the phone if needed. I think it's a trend that will continue to grow over the upcoming months and years.
    At all Kevin Hart's shows, they will literally kick you out if you pull your phone out during his show. I've seen it with my own two eyes.

    I saw Chappelle at the Palace last year and security was not messing around on that point. Smart watches were also banned.

    Yep. They warn people A LOT, so if you get booted it's your own fault.

    The Masters is a little different, as they try to minimize the distraction of the golfers. It's not unprecedented to ban a cell phone anywhere. But at a rock concert, yes it's new.

    Millennials are the only people with cell phones though, right?

    Apparently the millennials have also ruined the live concert experience. Should have known.

    Chappelle and Hart are rock stars? I can understand the massively famous Jack White forcing the audience to have a more authentic, human experience free of distractions like Instagram and Snapchat.
    When the masters banned phones only rich folks had them. It was Long before one came out with the placenta at birth.

    Standup comics do it so you don't film their routine, post it on YouTube, and ruin their jokes for people who may otherwise be willing to pay for the show.

    That’s what I was thinking. Plus if they pull a Michael Richards there is no proof.

    You're Generation X and allowed to rail on anyone born past 1975 or so.

    My 2 cents worth, and remember this is merely my opinion. I have always felt each generation has shown decline in toughness and work ethic. This includes my generation, my parents and grandparents were better in those areas than mine in my mind and without question. That doesn't mean any single generation is lazy overall. My parents and grandparents had to be tougher and work harder to survive. The kids today would curl up in the fetal position if they had to endure what they had to because they're so far removed from that harsher lifestyle.

    I find most millennials to be very tech savvy and I see nothing wrong with taking advantage of that. I have no problem with call ahead seating or using an app for checking in, I've been using call ahead for years because I hate waiting. My kids are millennials and I think they're well adjusted and hard working. Where they differ from some (not all) millennials I know, they aren't near as disrespectful. Something I see drastically different from my generation. Yes, we had disrespectful people in my generation, but not at the level I see from millennials. Then again, my generation was less respectful than my parents. One glaring difference I see between millennials and my generation is how thin skinned they are, so easily offended in comparison. I also see where many (again, not all) millennials do have a sense of entitlement and think they should start at a very high rung of the company ladder instead of the bottom, something my generation seemed to understand and didn't mind. I feel many of them were told by society (especially school) that they were special and some bought in to that. There were a lot of failed parenting strategies tried on millennials that weren't tried on older generations as well so some of it falls on my generation, although most folks I know deplored those strategies and laughed them off like I did.
    Overall, every generation thinks their generation is better and that their parents just didn't get it. As someone already said, you younger folks will likely think your kids generation is greatly lacking compared to yours.

    Constantinople? Eww. I heard there’s a great local coffee shop in Transalpine Gaul.
