A spokesperson said: &ldquo;Although selfie sticks are not something we&rsquo;ve had to address yet, we wouldn&rsquo;t allow them into live shows at the Roundhouse due to safety regulations. 

“They also have the potential to obstruct the view for others in the audience which could impact on people’s enjoyment of a live show.”

Verdict: Banned.
