You had better check to see if you can take a camera into the concert.  
At the last two I went to, it said right on the ticket, no photography.  
They were searching bags and bodies for cameras as well as other 
contraband items.  I almost took my camera to the first concert (Rod 
Stewart), but didn't.  I would have had to walk back all the way through 
the crowd to the car and dropped it off, then stood in line for an hour 
to get back to the gate.

For Paul McCartney I didn't even think once about bringing the camera.
