Is It Time To Ban Phones From Concerts?

With pending technology that would disable smartphone usage at concerts, what side of the fence do you sit on?

As Adele ascends to the stage in the middle of Staples Center in Los Angeles for the first of her eight sold-out summer shows, she has them at "Hello." And by "them," I mean the hundreds of mobile devices being held aloft to capture her grand entrance, fit for a queen in her glittering black gown.

"I'll probably never watch it again," admitted a young fan pointing and shooting next to me, "but I will post it on Instagram and Snapchat just to say, 'I was there.'"

Music's Television Empire

Netflix's "The Get Down" is the latest in a string of musical shows proving the new golden age of television is golden for music too
GRAMMY.com

Television series about musicians and the music industry are almost as old as TV. The first network television season was broadcast in the U.S. seven decades ago and within a few years musicians were a central part of the story. When "I Love Lucy" debuted in 1951 Lucille Ball's husband, Desi Arnaz, played a bandleader, with plenty of music performance segments on the show. In the 1960s the Monkees parlayed a hit show into pop stardom and the '70s found "The Partridge Family" telling everyone to "come on, get happy."
