My first experience with a phone ban at a concert was a few years ago when Dave Chappelle played Austin's Moody Theater, and it was incredibly inconvenient!  I either had to leave my phone in the car or security would lock it in a bag as you headed up the stairs on the back side of the W Hotel.  It was a huge pain in my @$$.

However, once inside, I was free to enjoy the show without the distraction of anyone else's phone. Of course, my phone is never a distraction but you phone is always a distraction.  I'm sure Dave Chappelle's ban on phones had more to do with copyright issues (once a joke is recorded, it's dead), than providing a phone free experience, but t it was nice to not have to watch the show through the phones of the people seated in front of us.

I guess Madonna aggress.  Or maybe she share's Dave's copyright concerns.  Either way, she's banned phones from her upcoming tour.

Do you agree with Madonna, should phones be banned from concerts?
