Trivia

A young German tourist wearing a bright crimson jacket and wielding a disposable camera with no ticket, no badge, made it through four security checkpoints and was two feet from getting onto the stage before he was grabbed by two undercover off duty police officers acting as security guards. The police officers had taken a break from their posts outside the Shrine and came up to stage left to view the action on stage for five minutes when this young kid who "looked like he shouldn't be there" showed up with a camera from his hand.
