In the last few months, we’ve gotten a few repeated questions about the use of photo and video during our shows and VIP sessions. We’ve always embraced a fair liberal use of phones and cameras to capture moments of our shows and audience interactions, save for some venues which have a well-published no audio/video recording policies for all their shows.
We’ve always loved and encouraged fans to share on social media that they’re at our show, tag us in your pictures, and grab photos and video clips of us performing! However, we do want to make sure it is not distracting or obstructing views of others.
So to help, we’ve decided to finally publish a photo and video policy for our show and VIP sessions, that we’ll be implementing with our team on the road, our concert promoters, and the venues which host us each night.
HOME FREE AUDIO, VIDEO, and PHOTO SHOW POLICIES (est. November 2018)
-Short videos and photos are allowed; No flash photography or videography
-No digital or professional cameras (unless given written permission)
-Cell phones and smart phones recordings only
-No professional accessories; including but not limited to tripods, gimbals, etc
-No using footage or pictures for commercial or monetization purposes (unless given written permission)
-This performance is owned by Home Free and recording the full length of concert is prohibited
HOME FREE AUDIO, VIDEO, and PHOTO VIP SESSION POLICIES (est. November 2018)
-No videography of Q&A or private performance
-Pictures are allowed; No flash photography
Each night, our tour team will be sending these policies in advance to venues and their respective staffs. Our team of amazing people on the road has the unique challenge every night of helping produce amazing experiences for our fans each night …in different cities …with a whole new team of people each night. We’ll strive to make sure that every single usher and venue staffer gets briefed on this, and we appreciate your patience in situations where these policies may not have gotten all the way through. Every venue and every city is unique.
We will have policies posted at venues starting for our A Country Christmas shows beginning in Atlantic City, NJ, but the policies go into immediate effect. Our team is already working with staffs on the road to advance these policies.
Finally, we want to add that we are constantly listening to feedback from our Home Fries about our concerts and live events. We want every one of our live experiences from top to bottom to be the best one yet. From the time you walk into to the venue, through the last note of the show, and through the end of signing lines we hope that you have a great night every time you come out to a show.
