Well, he probably will, sooner or later.

I mean, he probably has an opinion on something, so I'm sure he deserves it.

Would anyone, then, actually go? Who commissioned a fun-sucker to draw up such a list?

I wouldn't go, but it's not because the list exists, it's because of the reason the list exists - extreme crowds. Most of the things on the list are things that require more breathing room than the organizers apparently anticipate.


Plus recording equipment. Not a fan of banning good cameras, but I'm not surprised.


I was puzzled about the walkie-talkies, thinking about parents and kids keeping in touch in the crowds. I guess someone probably got on security's channel and screwed with them at some point.

The kids have phones so don't need walkie talkies.

I wonder how the organisers would have reacted in this situation:

Belfast woman wins £2,000 diabetes discrimination case


A Belfast woman with Type 1 diabetes has been awarded £2,000 after security staff at a rock concert confiscated her fizzy drink.

Kayla Hanna, 20, was at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in Belfast in 2016.

The student always carries Lucozade for her blood sugar levels, but staff employed by Eventsec Ltd removed it, despite her showing them her diabetes tattoo and insulin pack.

Eventsec said it was disappointed by the ruling.

The judge ruled it was discrimination.

Miss Hanna, who was 18 at the time of the incident, told the court she was going into the Boucher Road concert when she was told she could not bring in her bottle.
'Very anxious and upset'

"I told her [ the security guard] of my condition and showed her the tattoos on my wrist which indicate I have diabetes," she said.

"She said that 'anyone could have that' so I also showed her my insulin pack and the meter used to check my levels.

"She consulted with another guard and they insisted that they had a strict policy and they would not allow me to bring the drink inside."

Miss Hanna took a case under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and The Equality Commission for Northern Ireland supported her.

She told the court she had been "very anxious and upset" throughout the gig.

"I really hope that now this issue has been brought to light it won't happen again to me or other people who live with diabetes," she added.

Judge Gilpin said that Eventsec Ltd had failed to provide a reasonable adjustment to its policy of not allowing liquids to be brought into the concert.

An Eventsec spokesperson said it was pleased that the judge had acknowledged that the company had "considered what reasonable adjustments needed to be put in place in order to meet the needs of those patrons with diabetes".

"The facts surrounding this case were an isolated incident," the company noted.
'Simple adjustment'

Mary Kitson, senior legal officer at the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland said: "These are the kind of circumstances in which the reasonable adjustment provisions in the Disability Discrimination Act can be most beneficial".

She added: "They are in the act to ensure that people with disabilities are not denied access to services by reason of general policies which can, in themselves, be otherwise justifiable and necessary.

"In this case, the company should have made arrangements to ensure that Kayla could have accessed Lucozade during the concert if needed, for example by directing her to its own medical centre at the venue and providing her with a bottle of Lucozade.

"That would have been a simple adjustment and would have met her medical needs."

Security is a great excuse to sell $8 water.

But nothing bad happened medically.
She should have let her emotional support Bengal Tiger carry it.

Yeah, they wouldn't let her have bubbles, but I'm sure a tiger wouldn't have been noticed.
