My post had more to do with the fact that some artists won't expose themselves
to the SPL the audience gets. I was reminiscing about an artist wearing
earplugs -during the show!- like the ones I use during a soundcheck... Though
I've seen some techs who keep their earplugs on during a performance too.
And though we are free to leave a performance, it is disconcerning that _the
norm_ is on the treshold of pain. It doesn't leave much headroom for _bleeding
edge_ performances.

But since I don't walk away once hired, I simply prefer to turn down working a
concert that would be too loud for me to mix without earplugs.
