In 2016, everyone is trying to capture every exciting moment of their lives on social media, especially concerts. Time and time again artists call out fans for trying to Snapchat/Instagram their show instead of living in the moment. To their defense, fans bought the ticket, waited in line to see you, they should be able to enjoy it anyway they please. Right?
Well a fan apparently brought some professional videotaping equipment into a recent Adele concert, and the British superstar was not having it. She singled the woman out and blasted her for watching her concert through a camera instead of live and in person.
“Yeah I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera?” Adele asks. “Because I’m really here in real life. You could enjoy it in real life,” she said to cheers from the audience. “Can you take your tripod down?” she continued. “This isn’t a DVD, this is a real show, and I’d really like you to enjoy it because there’s lots of people outside who could have come in.”
Using your phone is one thing, but bringing professional gear is kind of a red flag. Like always, Twitter didn’t hold back their opinions, which were very mixed.

Tell us what you think. Is Adele in the right, or should a fan be able to enjoy a concert how they please?
