1. if there turn out to be quite a lot of people there already I'd still really like to get a spot at the barrier, so I was wondering how rude it is cosidered to make your way to the front of the queue? (just by looking for spaces in the crowd you can move through of course, no pushing and elbows involved)
1. Same as me in Milan in 2010. I can estimate roughly 1500 people were there

2. Q-jump is considered quite rude. Some may just look badly at you, some won't let you go and on the other hand won't have kind words for you.Take it as a "training" being some rows behind and gaining some extra rows during the moshpit (no pushing or elbows involved pls), without putting yourself in front a 1'60 m tall Muse fan.
Then aim to the barriers next time because you'll like it!
Good luck!

Or maybe someone could tell me some plus an minus for the places

Thank you very much for your help

(I'll go to the show in Bern)
you should actually see the main stage better if you're small because its higher, i'm 6'2 and i went for a spot near the front of main stage but couldn't see anything on the b-stage cause its so low (which is a lot of the gig), so i'd reccomend going for barrier/ close to barrier at very end of b-stage so you can still see main without having to turn.

Thank you very much! Then I'll try to get barrier at the b-stage
Do you know which songs they played on the b-stage? (And where Matt runs during UD?)

This is just going from memory (and it depends on your setlist of course!) but here's what I remember...

Full song on B-Stage:
-Whatever the first piano song is (in my case USoE & Sunburn)
-Resistance (if it's played)
-Liquid State
-Unintended (Well, it's really on the catwalk, not b stage)
-Blackout
-Guiding Light
-Undisclosed Desires (He doesn't get to the part of the b stage that's facing the main stage, unfortunately!)
-Starlight

Partial song on B-Stage
-Bliss (if played)
-Hysteria (if played)
-Follow Me
-Madness
-Plug in Baby
-Survival

Some of that could be wrong, but I tried to remember

If you want to actually be on barrier, not just near the front, get there early. 8am should be early enough, only a small number of people arrive earlier than that.

I second that, jumping the queue at the gate is in fact downright rude... a couple of Italian lads did that to us at the O2 and it was an outrage.

Once you are in the stadium though, if you just happen to worm your way politely nearer to the barrier you'll probably get away with it, depends how much charm you have and who you choose to "push" past.

I think I shall get to Amsterdam Arena at lunchtime & hope it isn't too busy, I want to be near the front but I am not spending an entire day in a fab city like Amsterdam sat in a flaming queue, I dont care how awesome Muse are!

what should you wear in the moshpit? I'm going to House Guards Parade tomorrow and while I don't want to freeze to death I don't particularly want to overheat

May be chilly tomorrow evening but you won't freeze, there should be plenty of bodies around. I would wear a jacket or other outer layer that you don't mind losing!

I took an old black fleece (not trendy but quite snug) for queueing at the O2, I dropped it on the floor when it got a bit hot inside and then picked it up at the end of the gig (luckily it had escaped being wee'd on) took it home, washed it, good as new & its coming to Amsterdam with me.

Have a brilliant time anyway.

You get a quite cool point of view, imo. Dom's drumkit rotates, and Matt and Chris (especially Matt) use the catwalk to play towards you. Plus it's cheaper, isn't it

Assuming the stage setup is the same as the previous arena tour, then you should be able to see the visuals just fine.
