Ray Lamontagne Release...

I've seen a lot of releases in my day, but I'm wondering if anyone here has photographed Ray Lamontagne this tour.

There's no release, but instructions for photographers are, in part:

Photo Policy: Can shoot entire acoustic set, and first 3 of the electric set, no flash and no audience obstructions.

Photographer Location: Center to House Right from the Soundboard (between Level 100 and 200). A minimum of at least 15 rows from the stage. No stage, pit or house left.

It's cool that we get to shoot the entire acoustic set, but I've highlighted the weird part. I understand no stage and, to a lesser degree no pit, but why no house left (which would be stage right)?

Any thoughts?

Well, in case anyone's still reading this:

The second worst show I've ever photographed.

The word is that Ray Lamontagne absolutely hates photographers. As such, we were banished to the far house-right aisle, about halfway to the back of the venue. It was absolutely horrible.

Don't waste your time when this one comes around.

Every shot looked pretty much like this heavily cropped one:

Looking at the EXIF data, it looks like you basically need superteles (400/2.8, 600/4s) to get enough light or a tight enough crop. Oh well, you get those sometimes.
