Over 60 People Reportedly Tossed From A PERFECT CIRCLE Show For Violating "No Photos" Policy This Weekend

We were able to capture pictures without getting thrown out, though.

Maynard James Keenan has a thing with cellphones. All concerts from Tool, A Perfect Circle and his solo project Puscifer all ban the use of cellphones to shoot photos or video during the live set. In fact, as A Perfect Circle is setting up during their current run of arena dates, fans are greeted with this message about the no photo policy:

Maynard is notorious for being no fan of flashes of light and it's his show, so he gets to set the rules, right? Well, this isn't just a warning. MetalSucks reports that over 60 people were ejected from the band's Reading, PA show this past Saturday at Santander Arena & Santander Performing Arts Center. The general manager of the venues, David Farrar, confirmed the news in comments on Instagram, responding to a friend that manages to snap some photos of A Perfect Circle.

Thankfully, Metal Injection got proper credentials for our photographer, and took over 30 photos legally of the band. View our gallery from their Brooklyn show here.

How do you feel about the policy? Some fans in attendance pay anywhere from $50 to $80 to get in and are then told to keep their phone away? Is this really necessary? At the same time, it must be nice to actually watch a show without the glow of a million phones blocking your view. I'm torn.
