This is a normal post Maybe they're playing to an audience of chimps
And the two guitarists are the only ones brave enough to face the feces.

This is a normal post I work in live events (I actually did a Rick Astley gig in Manchester last Friday) and can tell you that they're to deflect flying bottles of piss, as the drummer can't easily swerve them.
(Not really...they're to cut down the amount of sound coming directly from the drum kit to the audience, so the levels can more easily be controlled via the PA, usually in smaller venues.)

This is a normal post I work in the factory that makes these. It's actually a changing room for exhibitionists.

This is a normal post Sound guards are a godsend
If you play in a group with the trumpets behind you. Proper deafeners when they want to be.

We use those sound barriers for isolating drums while recording alright, prevents spilling into other mics while playing as a group.
There are circular clip on sound barriers for brass players to put onto their microphones.
The sound that doesn't go into the mic bounces back to you so you can hear yourself even if the sound engineer doesn't put the right amount into your monitor. Really handy stuff
