AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – Officials at the Mullins Center at UMass Amherst have hired additional security, to be sure that people are not using their phones at an upcoming performance by comedian Kevin Hart. According to Mullins Center Marketing Director Rachel Meyrowitz, texting, tweeting, picture taking, recording, and talking on cell phones will be strictly prohibited during the April 29 show.
“If you are found with your cell phone out, you will be – per the instructions of the show- ejected from the event,” Meyrowitz wrote in a statement sent to 22News.
“If you find that you absolutely must use your phone, please go into the concourse area and out of the arena bowl. We all know things happen and others not at the event may need to reach you.”
She says that due to the strict no cell-phone policy, they have hired extra security to monitor the crowd for violators.
