So, tomorrow night, I'm heading down to Worcester, Massachusetts to see Nine Inch Nails. The concert is at the DCU Center, which seems to be a pretty fair venue (I saw Trans-Siberian Orchestra there in November or so, and it was a nice, friendly place). Now, the only other concert I've brought a camera to is a Red Hot Chili Peppers show last October, but it was disposable.

Now, question - disposable cameras take sh*tty pictures, so I plan on brining my digital camera. It's far from professional, it's fairly slim, and it takes horrible video. Will they let me bring it in? Or should I try to sneak it in? And, if I sneak it in, how is the most effective way? Stick it behind my belt in the front (above my crotch)? Drug-cartel it and shove it up my pooper?

UGers, what is the best way?

Bring a pentax camera, they'll feel so sorry for you they'll let it in.

Wrap it up inside an item of clothing (coat, for example) and then put the item of clothing in a bag. No venue is through enough to find it in there.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Just wear tight boxers and put them in there.

Why would it be a problem, is America different to the UK on cameras entry to gigs?

well you see, I have really big balls. So I usually tape whatever I'm smuggling behind the sack so it rests on them. I've gotten pipes, weed, salvia, and a pack of exotic stoges through airport security/customs like that : D

wrap it in a hoodie as stated before or depedning on how security is you could just put it in a bag/Gf's purse. if u dont have a gf put it in a purse and say its ur gfs purse and that she asked you to bring it in and she is in already.

I have the same problem, I'm heading down to the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest tomorrow, I'm trying to find the best way to sneak my stuff in.

I used to just hide it in my crotch area, they don't usually look twice at me.

That's providing you don't get the one gay security guard.
Should that happen, I'd recommend you pre-lube your cornhole to make it slightly more bearable

If they don't stop you with one type of camera they won't stop you with any. No camera gets different permissions.

Call them up and ask them if camera's are permitted into the venue.
If they aren't, then I don't suggest trying to take it in, most security places let you won't take it in. And you never know whether they're going to do thorough checks or not that night.

So yea, best thing to do is 'drug cartel' it in.
Don't bother trying your belt or your socks, they'll check both places.
Or wear big shoes, and slide it all the way down next to your foot and deal with the awful horrible pain as you walk in.
But remember, if they're stopping you with camera's at the door, chances are they security doing barricade will take your camera too if you get it passed.

It depends on whether they use metal detectors or not. If they just pat you down, put it in your back pocket because they can't legally touch your ass because you could claim sexual harassment. If they do use metal detectors, I'd go with the "pooper" method that was mentioned earlier, haha

Really?
I've only had my ankle patted down like, once.
But I have had them at least make me pull up my pants a little to show there's no bulges in my socks on multiple occasions.

i guess now that i think about it more when they pat down your legs they usually, but not always, go all the way down to your socks...so i guess you're right
#38
one concert i went to they were yelling "no cameras, no cameras" i have a bulky camera. so i put it in my pocket and when the security guard patted me down i hugged him with my camera behind his back. he didnt notice and i walked right in.

Trent would probably allow any kind of video equipment if he could, but sadly, it's not his choice. It's the decision of the venue.

But, I just realized something - I'm used to getting frisked due to my appearance. I mean, I'm a 6'1 male with hair halfway down my back, a mustache, chops, and I wear a lotttt of black. But, I'm going to a Nine Inch Nails concert, where there are bound to be people who look far more sketchy than I. So, I probably don't need to worry about a frisking. As long as I treat the security with respect, I should be fine.
