    which concert are you attending? eason chan? check with the organiser. if they have their own photographers, 95% u can't bring in your own camera.

    PS: u might want to sneak in ur camera, while ur wife carries the lens, each entering within 10mins of one another. if they check then u say u were out for a shoot before the concert, and u don't feel comfortable leaving the camera in the car, so u brought the camera along with you, leaving the lens in the car. on the other hand, ur wife will say that she bought the lens just before the concert and hence was carrying it along with her. as far as possible, enter from different doors/lanes..

    Yes.. It's Eason Chan concert..
    Good suggestion.. a lens will not work without the body.. and a body will not work without the lens..

    The question is, do you die-die want to get photos from a fixed, less-than-ideal position, or do you want your money's worth enjoying the music? Don't forget the purpose you're there for in the first place (unless sneakily taking photographs from a compromised position is your thing).

    I think even accredited professionals get ushered off the photography pits after the 2nd or 3rd set anyway.

    media photographers get "chased" off after 3rd song....production photographers stay throughout
