Oh yeah when I went there for the Depeche Mode gig photographed on the last page, I was genuinely taken aback at how wide it was. Sort of similar in a way to how the Live in Rome DVD looked.

Certainly, one sees the West Ham fans have a point when they complained how far away they are from the pitch. And I doubt pushing the seats forward a little really helps.

The pitch is gigantic because it was an Olympic Stadium. Extra wide on the sides for all the track and field activities.

For all our fellow Musers in the UK, what stadium is the best for concerts?

I messed up by clicking the wrong link on the 10am presale but got ambulant disabled plus companion tickets on the 1pm presale. I have never seen 'ambulant disabled' options on any other venue, of any description, so I was pleased I didn;t have to take a wheelchair space that someone else had to have.
I will stay in a Premier Inn in north London, near where my son lives. £136 for two nights, including breakfast. Amazing value for London and the hotel is accessible.
Has anyone driven to this venue? What is parking like? Would it be more or less stressful than pub;ic transport?
I saw T2L at Emirates Stadium and was so far back I only knew where Matt was because he wore red trousers. We are equally far back but in a lower tier this time. I was just glad to get any tickets, tbh. Is this stadium a lot bigger than the average stadium? Crowd control and public transport from Emirates was excellent and from O2 was good but slow so we got the bus back to my hotel and avoided the massive crowds waiting for the tube.

now going through the process of waiting to see if ticketmaster can reallocate our ticketes from GA standing/seating to ambulant access, as i too have never heard of this at concerts and wheelchair access is not viable for registerd blind people. After not getting the option of a lower tier offered yesterday I opted for Ga & having to gamble on the prospect of running for seats with a blind friend for a lower tier seat hopefully in front of the half way line. Hope ticketmaster dont take the 72 hrs though as stated to come back to me

If you want to change your Ticketmaster order then phone them, don't wait on their CS email, it's hopeless. Takes about 30 mins to get through..

hiya
yeah i spoke to them this morning , they said it shouldnt be a problem and was seating available but had to be passed to accounts. i was fine with until they mentioned it could be up to 72 hrs, which takes us well passed general sale -hence less/no tickets left. first time ive changed anything with ticketmaster so not sure how good they are at responding. general customer service/ disability phone numbers i can find, unless there is a direct accounts one

Could you try on the venue presale? If you are successful, you can resell your GA tickets via Twickets. Good luck!

Sorry, I should have said MuseBay. There's a sticky about reselling.

Say he wants to do something other than do the big London show. Books London show.

Same as it ever was Still thinking of a non-UK pairing though, if not sure where.

Indeed. I'm pretty sure as well that the retractable seating it has when football is played goes back for these, so the seats are even further back than in a normal football stadium. Can imagine as a performer it looks pretty sweet though.

Best for me has been Wembley of the London shows, but mainly because the Emirates was painful to get out of afterwards and the Olympic Stadium may well be likewise. Twickenham, I gather, is also awful to get out of, although I was unable to get tickets to U2 there so don't have any real ability to compare it.

Twickenham is too fucking huge for gigs, getting out not too bad tho if you just walk back to Richmond.

I'm wondering if they'll add a second date in London. Probably not but I've got the sites open in case.

TBH best stadium I've seen gigs in is the Millennium Stadium but Muse have never bothered playing it.


No idea where this Bristol show disappeared to so London it is.

I doubt there will be a 2nd date with how slow these dates are selling

Wembley best place I've been to a gig and find it easy to get out of. Only ever been Twickenham for the rugby and find the management of the whole are great don't know if its the same for gigs
