But people who watch the entire show, then leave before/during the encore/last song. For a lot of gigs I do often make my way to the back (or wherever the exit is) so that I can make a quick getaway as soon as the final song is done, but last night I did that at Paradise Lost and easily 200-250 turned round and walked out as soon as they started playing the last song. And given that there were only about 1000 people there, that's a pretty significant proportion.
I don't like to leave shows early, but I'm more okay with people doing that than intentionally showing up late to skip opening bands.
