I was at the back of the lower tier directly facing the stage. I have mild hearing loss in my right ear and moderate hearing loss in my left ear. I removed my hearing aids and listened with earplugs in. It didn't sound right so I removed the plug from my left ear. It sounded great then! The ambulant disabled seating was great but venue staff didn't seem to know what 'ambulant disabled' means. Because I was in a fold-up wheelchair I was directed to a wheelchair space. Tom Morello was so loud they couldn't hear me saying, no, my seat is in row 23. I'm going to get out of this wheelchair. They got it in the end. I wish they'd pointed out that there was an accessible toilet directly behind block 149 - we were in block 150 - so we went to the one outside the entrance to our block first. There was a queue. It was a pain in the arse having to store the wheelchair five blocks away . Most venues allow me to leave it close to the area where I am sitting. My son had to go and get it the second time I needed the loo. Luckily he saw the accessible toilet by block 149 then so I didn't have to bother him again as I can walk that far.
I loved the set. I'm sorry if people further back found the screen small. I remember being on the top tier of the Etihad Stadium for the 2nd Law tour. If I hadn't been able to see the screen, there would have been no point being there.
We travelled from Burnt Oak Broadway by train then from St Pancras, again by train, to Stratford International. No hassle at all. On the way back there was very little time to wait at Stratford. There was a 30 minute wait for a train from St Pancras so we got the tube to Edgware. No hassle. Journeys to and from the stadium took just over an hour.
I saw Drones live and it was wonderful but I wasn't disappointed in the staging for this. I preferred the Etihad Stadium to this one, though. Too damn big.
Next tour I hope they come to Cardiff instead of going to Bristol again. We have a fabulous stadium here and I don't think they've played here since 2010, before I became a fan.
