A Perfect Circle No Filming Ban Broken at Coachella
A Perfect Circle is known for having a strict no filming on mobile phones or other devices at their shows. Over the weekend while they performed at Coachella, their strict ban had to be loosened as the entire set was filmed and posted online. The video has since been taken down.
Guitarist Billy Howerdel commented that "we have our security staff, they interface with local security and the local law enforcement, and it's left to their discretion at the end of the day. There's only so much, I guess, you can ask them, how sophisticated they can be in trying to be sensitive to somebody paying money to come experience something and then breaking the rule or whatever, you know."
