Is Prince the only artist that prohibits videotaping his concerts

Last night I was at a Chris Botti concert and he told the audience that they could videotape all they wanted. He then said that if someone prohibits you from videotaping they're concert, don't go see them. The only person I could think of that he was referring to was Prince, what other performer has that rule? I then began thinking Chris Botti's music and concerts are not in demand like Prince's, and people likely won't try to bootleg his concert, heck, I dozed off a couple of times although the concert was good. Also, I wish Prince would realize that he is not losing money by people bootlegging his music. If there was some way he could see the financial statistics, he would realize he is not losing anything because people who buy his stuff still would continue no matter what.

Most venues don't allow taping period. Although most people ignore that rule. I find it a bit weird to watch a live show through a video screen on a phone. The last Prince concert I went to, there were dozens of people recording, why not just enjoy the show?

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

Anytime I have attended other artists performances the ticket has the usual "no recording devices, cameras, etc. printed on the ticket.............

^Right. This Chris Botti is the exception, not the rule. When I saw Bob Dylan in Amsterdam 2 years ago, there was even an announcement in Dutch about no cell phones please, to make sure everybody got it.

Personally, I didn't have a problem with Prince prohibiting other people from videotaping his concerts, for sharing or bootlegging but then I learned that HE has them videotaped himself but won't release them, so that we can BUY them from him.

NOW THAT'S JUST DOWNRIGHT MEAN AND SELFISH!!!!!!! fit

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Radiohead don't allow it, right?
Savages have a sign up saying don't videotape.




There's a load more that have slipped my mind right now.
