was approved to shoot Tori Amos in Boston last week, but the venue only had a review ticket. No photo pass. Did the usual quick calls to publicists; no dice.

Even if I had confirmed the pass, here's the restrictions:

For Tori- Photographers are allowed to shoot the first song, no flash from the front of house (which is by the sound board).

I know that Gaga let you shoot a 3rd and 5th song, Jay-Z and Kanye had photogs running from pit to soundboard, but how is Tori Amos only letting one song be shot? One song?

Any other crazy restrictions you've faced?

Last Beyonce tour dictated 30 seconds as she came on stage and all photographers had to leave the shooting area before the music actually started.

I can't believe that statement to be honest, I have seen fellow photographers photos of her still on their cards

I didn't say she doesn't allow photographers. I said she doesn't like them being there.
