Right.... Is it ok to talk during a gig? Is it a case of 'I've paid so I can do what I want'. Why do I ask? Well, I was subjected to a barrage of abuse from a (drunk) party at Nick's gig all because I asked two members of their party to keep their voices down. The abuse continued the whole evening with everything from sectarian comments to the usual 'who does he think he is'. Is it the promoters job to stop people from talking or does the audience as a whole have a responsibilty to say to offenders when the talking gets out of hand. My view is that you don't go to the pictures and talk through the film, so why would you go to a gig to talk through it. I'm genuinely interested to know what people think as it seems to happens at every gig and if you say anything to the talkers you seem to be made to feel like a fool.
