Park West in Chicago and The Rave here in Milwaukee are pretty notorious for pat downs and wanding. They took my pen once at The Rave.  :(
For all you broken hearted lovers lost, go find another one. 'Cause you know time won't wait and you'll be late, white rabbits on the run...

wow, but surely they wouldn't take your smartphone off you? I'm thinking things might be a little less strict in the UK

It's a little bit more difficult to be discrete with a smartphone than it is a camera since you can turn off the back display, but yeah I doubt they'd take your phone. I actually meant House of Blues in Chicago did patdowns, but Park West always has security roaming and looking for cameras.

To be honest the only reason I would bring a camera is on the off chance of actually getting to meet her, though suppose you could take a photo with your smartphone.

they searched my bag at the show I went to in NC, I told the lady I wouldn't use my flip camera (but I did, hehe) they didn't enforce though, like this venue seemed to have.

Great show first show I've been to in a shopping center LOL but that wasn't a bad thing.For those of us who arrived at 6pm or before and were near the door we got to hear some of her sound check while the door was getting new lettering.Small venue seats about 200 they had it set up like a standard concert venue.I was lucky enough to wind up  second row center not bad

Hey, I think I was sitting next to you! I was the red head :)
I got there pretty early about six so I got pretty good seats. Second row in the middle and the stage was very close. I say this after every V show I attend, but that was the best show and the best that V has ever sounded. She was adorable and funny. I loved hearing Fools Like Me on the Rhodes. It was so soft and pretty and I was fighting back tears, as I was for most of the show. I was so happy that she ended the show with "Marching Line" too. Mostly the crowd was very well behaved and no talked during her playing. Some dude in the back towards the end of the show kept shouting "Play Marching Line!" and when she went this is my last song and it's called "London" the guy went "UGHH!" really loud. She laughed and said something like, "You know I usually come out and do an encore so just be patient. By the way, the encores are never real. It's never because you clap, we planned on coming back out anyway" LOL. Also it was cute when she forgot the lyrics to "Get Good" and someone called out the lyrics to her. 
I got a signed poster too. Mine was number 7. I also got a set list from Mark after the show. I really wanted to stay so badly after to meet her again but I had a hungry husband on my hands so I had to go. I get two more chances in NY next week! Just out of curiosity, did she come back out in the club or outside?

Lol @ the guy shouting for "Marching Line".

The posters were $25.

They had a small stack at this show but I'm betting they just have a certain amount they bring out at every show.
