I don't think it's snobbery, it's that everyone is there to do a job. 
We local crew were told not to approach the performers, and anyone 
who had would have been looked on as an unprofessional doof (although 
I did happen to be standing in the area when Neil Diamond passed, and 
was surprised to see how bald he was).  Generally, when the roadies 
are working, the performers aren't even in the building, and while 
the show's going on is a great time for the roadies and drivers to 
get some sleep.
