Glad to hear that audiences aren't that way all across the world. I, of course, wouldn't know. I speak from the limited vantage point of a (frustrated) small-town Midwestern American; I have had very little experience with knowledgable audiences. Hence I am glad to hear that not everyone succumbs to so-called "bad behavior". Complaining about concertgoers' shenanigans is a delicate, difficult balance between being too fussy or prissy and upholding our precious standards... But for those of us who go to concerts for the music, it is amazing how much an audience can add to or detract from our enjoyment of a performance.

I selected yes under "do you wish to allow readers to submit public comments to your blog". Hopefully this will enable you to comment away.

hahah I had an incident once where one of my friends recieved a phone call in the middle of a concert.. already a nono. so then he went ahead and answered it... and then he left in the middle of a piece. a few seconds later, my other friend that was with me left behind him... talk about embarrassment lol i hope you haven't had to deal with that...
