Just saw American English (best Beatles tribute band out there)in Park Ridge, IL. This guy was walking all over the stage the whole night with this set up. He was walking in front of the band shooting about 3' from their faces with his flash going off. Is this normal to do? And should he at least have a darker shirt on, not construction orange? He did have a press pass and was back stage.

Someone started doing this at a recent festival/event and got all the shooters with passes banned from the stage by the stage manager except for 1 shooter hired by the event who was keeping to the sides of the stage to the pit in the front of the stage with the stage being approximately 10ft. off the ground making it near impossible for decent shots without backing into the crowd outside the barriers to get out of the nostril hair range.

even if this was the band's red-shirted step son, there is no need for this kind of photog behavior. For shame, for shame.

His choice of color was not so good for what appears to be a photographer hired by the band or venue. On another note, I did notice that true to life, the band has a lefty bass player.

American English puts on an unreal show. 'Paul' learned to play bass left handed. They do a complete show from early to late Beatles. Here are more photos

The photographer was not from the band.

I've been offered the ability to shoot on-stage by both Styx and Barenaked Ladies.

When I shoot "big" shows, I wear all black.

I still declined their offers.

When I shoot a show, I am ridiculously cognizant of the fact that the audience paid to see those guys on stage, not me. I've shot from the stage wings and from behind the drummer, but that's as far as I'll go...

Not sure if he played it during the Magical Mystery Tour days, but McCartney has also been known to sling a Ricky from time to time...
