I've also noticed this trend toward screaming and yelling; it gets on my last nerve! On tv shows, I often mute the sound, just like I do during commercials. Like you birdgal , in my day there was just clapping and cheering at appropriate times, and not during songs.
The last concert I attended some years ago, with my son, was to see INXS - unfortunately not with the deceased original singer, but still a great band with great songs. There was a very large man sitting one seat over from me in the row immediately behind us, who let out frequent and extended yells in his booming voice which was loud enough to deafen a person, often in the midst of songs. The audience was loaded with shouters/screamers.
As if that weren't enough, a woman to my left in the row in front of me screamed, but also frequently stood/'danced', completely blocking our view of the stage. All this rudeness took much from the enjoyment of the evening; I went home frustrated and exhausted. Haven't gone to a concert since.
