Toronto show 9/16/09- Not allowed to stand and dance!!

The show last night was awesome- Bono has never sounded better.
However, I was wondering if this happened to anyone else- we were told to sit down by security or we were going to be removed from the Rogers Centre bc people in our section complained that we were standing and dancing.
I have NEVER been to a concert before where this happened!
Thank God tonight I'm on the floor!
We didnt sit down- just moved to a different section but im still so mad at the way I was treated. If i had been smoking pot, i guess that would have been fine!
See you there tonight

That is just insane!! I could never sit still during a U2 concert. I'm going on Sunday with a broken foot and still plan on standing and dancing as best as I can!!

OK, I'm guilty of this. I was at a Matchbox 20 show (which was average) and these old birds got up and started dancing, well not dancing but clapping and stuff. Now I would not of cared but they blocked my line of sight to the stage so I told them to sit the fuck down.

Thats the only time that happened, but yeah I understand how it can be annoying but if you were blocking someones view then try to think of that.

tickets should say "Section ###, Row ##, Reserved Dancing Spot ##". Then no more excuses.

At one point, I was the only one standing in my side of the section. I hope everyone enjoyed me shaking my fat ass

When I went to Dublin 3, I had a 6th row seat. The girl behind me was really into the opening band, The Script. They're another home-grown Irish band. Well, I started getting into the song they were singing, so I stood up to take pics and a snippet video. The guy sitting behind me (next to the girl) told me to sit down. I was shocked. I sat down but I told him, I hope you're not planning to sit down during U2, because I sure as hell will not be sitting down! He gave me some crap about oh, yeah if everyone is standing up then it's okay to stand up, but during The Script no one else was standing up (except for the girl next to him) so he didn't want me to stand up.

Geez, no love for the opening band whatsoever. Whatev, dude, so NOT cool...

When I sat down, the girl behind me sat down as well because she witnessed the whole thing between me and the dude. But after what I said about standing up during U2, she put a hand on me and said Don't worry, I'll stand up with you.

This is pretty typical of a toronto crowd. People love to complain, and they love to sit quietly. Hopefully this doesn't affect my first U2 experience. Guess I shoulda got GA tickets .
