At the behest of my other half, I went to see One Republic last night in Zürich. Having never been to Hallenstadium before I must say I was impressed with the venue, good access, reasonable prices for food and drink and all the rest. Not really being a One Rebublic fan,I thought the show was absolutely fantastic, these guys really put it on for the crowd, clearly demonstrating that they love what they do. What didn't impress me was the almost obsessive and quite pathetic use of smartphones. We were quite close to the stage and every single time a popular song came on, straight away the smartphones came out and up in the air. So instead of looking at the band, I could only see a sea of tiny coloured screens.Why oh why to people need to record everything, why cant they just live for the moment.
