As such we would like you to know a few things that will benefit you in terms of safety and security at our shows."

They continued: "You may have heard or read in the media about a spate of mobile phones thefts at music venues.. Professional gangs have been targeting unsuspecting members of the audience at numerous venues and stealing their mobile phones, the numbers taken have occasionally been significant. Please take good care of your personal items, especially your mobile phones and be aware of where they are at all times, keep them safe. If you notice any suspicious activity then please inform the venue security. The memories on your phone are worth keeping safe."
