OK, so I went to see David Foster at the Living Room on Saturday night. He was great - softly spoken, quietly humourous, a great voice and some really nice tunes. A really enjoyable night, tainted (for this old humbug at least) by the couple of tables who couldn’t stop talking the whole way through his performance. It really intruded on the music as they were shouting during the loud parts to be heard over the tunes. I’m not talking about exchanging the odd comment during the performance, this was literally just chatting all the way through. Why? There is ample space outside the performance area for you to go and chat, so why do some people show no regard for other people who’ve come to listen to the music (or for the performer himself, come to think of it)? :fume:
Oh and before people start going off on saying ‘well the Taiwanese always talk through movies, why would you expect anything different at a gig?’, the people in question were nearly all foreigners. Of course being British I said nothing at the time and now I’m moaning about it afterwards. But seriously, does it trouble you to shut up for an hour or two, or take your conversation outside?
Rant over, I’m going to lie down.
