Brad Paisley is siding with the police regarding an incident where a woman and her 4 month old infant were removed from the pit area of the concert. She says it was because she was breastfeeding, but police say it was for the safety and welfare of the child.
There’s no way I would take a -month-old baby into the pit at one of my concerts. It seemed to me, it sure seemed that she did the absolute wrong thing,” Brad tells Radio.com.
I was somewhere else on the stage at that point.” But, he said, “from what I was told by the authorities, according to the police it had nothing to do with breastfeeding at all. Nothing.From what I saw in the video, it looked like they were kind,” he said. “It didn’t look like they were mean.”
There’s no way I would take a -month-old baby into the pit at one of my concerts. It seemed to me, it sure seemed that she did the absolute wrong thing. When my kids go to concerts—and believe it or not, they were there at that one, and they rarely go — they look like Princess Leia, they have these huge earphones. And they’re back at the soundboard. Because even back there it’s 100 decibels.”
And down front in the pit? That’s much louder. Not only are you hearing the concert’s basic audio, but as Paisley explained, you’re getting some serious bass. “The subs that carry the bass are right there under the stage. And this is how powerful those are: those reach the lawn. We don’t have a separate set that are way back in the amphitheater. You got a little baby that’s hearing [those] frequencies … I mean, come on!”
“People are crazy, they do some crazy things and make some bad decisions,” he continued. “And that was in every way a bad decision. And I wish she would just learn from this as opposed to pretending to be a victim.”
There ya have it folks… Concerts are loud…even Brad Paisley ones…
