Cellphones have taken over out lives and sometimes we can say that is not a good thing. People are obsessed with a never connection to their cellphones. It this case, Paul McCartney had the perfect right to issue a reprimand to cell phone users.
Paul McCartney was forced to issue a stern warning to fans trying to cover his performance using cellphones at an intimate show at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, who were ignoring restrictions on photography and videography.
The former Beatles star was playing the classic song "Twenty Flight Rock" when he noticed some in the audience using their phones. He stopped mid-way through, and reportedly told them, "You've all been told not to take photos. You're taking them, and you're taking them, and it's putting me off! So, you know, play by the rules, man!"
He recalled that in a concert Prince wouldn't start the show unless the crowd switched off their mobile phones.
McCartney then restarted the song.
McCartney will resume touring later this year in support of his new album, Egypt Station, which is set to be released on September 7.
