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.
