We’re back in a proper venue today! We’re at The Pearl at the Palms Casino. Capacity: 2,500. Easy day.

As a photographer, longtime musician and father of a FOH engineer/production manager, I’m really enjoying your photo documentation of venues. Your clean, symmetrical images are inspiring.
So I’m curious – with a photographer mixing monitors, how do the Goo Goos feel about photo access at their shows? Are they like most top tier acts, and insist on “three songs, no flash”?

Thanks for the kind words, Jon. Yes, the Goo Goo Dolls’ management enforces the first three / no flash rules. The no flash thing I understand completely, but the first three… that I don’t get. If bands want better live shots of themselves getting published, they should loosen that up a bit in my opinion.

May I ask…what does three songs, or first three, mean? And who does that apply to? just curious…

Photographers who have a photo pass are allowed down in the pit to shoot the first three songs. After the end of the third song security shoos them out.

Ummm, I went to this show and used a crummy little point-and-shoot camera (unfortunately, the only kind of camera we fans are allowed to bring in) WITH flash. For future reference, does this annoy the guys onstage, or is this kind of flash too tiny and pathetic to bother them?

No, those little flashes aren’t bright or close enough to bother the band. But they also aren’t helping your camera out, so you might as well turn them off!

Thank you again so much Robert for your outstanding blog. I love to scroll back through it. The cumulative effect is amazing.
Thanks too for your work w/ the Angry Neighbors. I really enjoyed this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sj19rDljpc&feature=channel
Getting to know you and your work has certainly enhanced the Goo experience.

How did Paul think this was Reno?

Thanks for the awesome blog! And I learned something new today about what “first three/no flash” means. Very interesting. I love your photography overall too. Seems like it could be made into one of those “table top” books. Maybe limited editions? Maybe for a charity? (ahem… Compass House?)
