MGMT to allow audio recording at live shows?

A recently removed blog post leaves fans unsure

MGMT could be set to allow fans to record the audio at their live shows.

In a post on their official website and in a blog on their Myspace, the group revealed the news.

“Audio recording is allowed at shows,” the statement read. “In each venue there will be a taping section. You must record the show from this section and not outside of it. This section in most situations will be located by the soundboard. In reserved seating and other unique situations you will be asked to keep your microphones at head level.”

They added: “There is no special taper ticket needed. We do NOT allow videotaping only audio.”

Despite the announcement, both the post on their website and the blog on their Myspace have now been removed, leaving fans unsure on whether they are allowed to record at the group’s gigs or not.

Currently on tour in North America, the band will play shows in the UK and across Europe later this year.
