PETER FRAMPTON: Talks More About Phone Incident
He says that the fan’s phone he threw at a show landed on a seat and wasn’t broken.
Peter Frampton says he’s established a new policy at his concerts since he threw a fan’s phone at a concert in Indiana earlier this month.
The guitar says he now allows photos and video just during the first three songs. He tells USA Today, “Then I ask them to put them down…and I get applause every time I say that. When you put the phone down at the concert, there’s your 3-D, there’s your HD.”
Frampton also clarifies some rumors about the incident on his Facebook page, writing, “I did NOT take or break his personal property. He got his phone back intact! I’m not sure what make of phone it was but it landed safely on a seat in perfect shape. Many artists and audience members feel the same way I do. It just happens that this event has stirred up the conversation which is a good thing! A conversation that I’m sure will be ongoing about our smart phones.”
