I am an extremely avid music enthusiast and concert-goer, so imagine my dismay at being told that dancing was not allowed at the Joe Bonamassa concert last Sunday night at Abravanel Hall.
Pam the usher informed me it was against policy and that I should be seated even though I was not obstructing anyone’s view. I am fortunate enough to travel all over the world to go to concert events, so I doubt it will affect my enjoyment of Joe Bonamassa or other concerts. It’s just a shame that I can no longer support Abravanel Hall.
Perhaps a letter to Joe would be in order to have him consider the venues at Deer Valley or Red Butte Garden for his next show. The movie "Footloose" was not that far-fetched after all!
