Confusion reigns over whether MGMT fans are now able to take audio recordings at their shows after the band removed posts on their website and MySpace which had supported the idea.
The band had posted on their official website and in a MySpace blog that they were now allowing attendees of their shows to take DIY audio recordings in specially designated taping areas, reports Nme.com.
However, the post on their website and the blog on MySpace have since been removed, leaving fans in doubt whether the information is still valid.
The statement had said, "Audio recording is allowed at shows. In each venue there will be a taping section. You must record the show from this section and not outside of it. This section in most situations will be located by the soundboard. In reserved seating and other unique situations you will be asked to keep your microphones at head level."
"There is no special taper ticket needed. We do Not allow videotaping only audio."
The band have recently been in the UK press discussing drug use, with bandmember Andrew VanWyngarden stating that he wouldn't want to try controversial "legal high" drug Mephedrone, as previously reported by Spinner.
Meanwhile, the duo are currently touring the US before heading to Europe for a slew of dates later in the year.
Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.
