Going to Tool in Pittsburgh tonight? Don’t use your phone

Tool plays PPG Paints Arena on Friday.

Tool plays tonight at PPG Paints Arena, but don’t try to remember the show digitally.

The arena tweeted a statement saying that anyone attempting to take photos during the show would be ejected.

The band played Cleveland on Wednesday and according to cleveland.com, “It’s not a ‘put it away or else’ thing. It’s a no-tolerance thing, and there are no refunds.”

In his review, Chuck Yarborough writes that he had “never seen security so actively pursue ‘offenders’ and eject them with diligence that bordered on fervor.”

Yarborough also wrote that a Tool fan in from of him was escorted out during the first song for using his phone and wasn’t given time to pick up his jacket before his exit.

While others like Jack White while touring with The Raconteurs provided a pouch to store your cellphone during the show, Tool is letting fans keep their mobile devices.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
