    I find the best place to go in Covent Garden isn`t in the pit where the chairs are, but over by the bank. That`s where the "noisy" street performers go. There are all kinds of acrobats and comedians there, pretty cool.
    And lol Zerocyde, there are people in my class at school who can`t go ONE HOUR without texting. What could POSSIBLY be so important? Oh wait. You were talking about your boyfriend. Well clearly that`s EXTREMELY important.

    No, I did. It`s set up for a planted actor to do the mobile phone, so that they can go over and play at him, the music is also perfectly timed for them if you listen when they start, and end etc.

    BigBonny - "Sadly, it`s a part of the show, it`s a set-up, but it`s still fantastic :)"

    Thankfully your wrong, this was shot at Covent garden London. The performers there are known for these sorta tricks. If your visiting London its always worth a visit as there will be 5-8 performances going on at the same time in the `garden`.

    Convent Garden is cool, but now, all the street performers go to the South Bank near the London Eye. I swear, you can`t move for living statues, buskers, contortionists and jugglers.

    Spoken like a true dick. Ever think about not talking on your cellphone out of consideration of the people around you who also paid the same money that you did? People like you make it so drating unbearable to go to the movies nowadays.

    There aren`t many things in the world that are more irritating than a person who has to just talk away on their cellphone during a performance. Whether you paid to see a group or not, if you`re sitting at an area where a band/quartet/choir are performing and watching the show, have some damn courtesy and don`t talk on your cellphone.

    I can`t even count how many times some jerk in the audience left his/her cellphone on during one of our performances. Luckily, only a select few of them actually talked on it.
