It's right by the airport. Are you around the airport/venue or in town?

I am at Kyriad Montpellier Aeroport - Montpellier

273 Rue Roland Garros, Mauguio,

 

Not sure if we are at the same one?

Not sure it's mine, but I think that's where Lee (lsgriffiths) is staying, he's flying out on Tues :)

 

Pretty sure all us Monday night types could meet up for a drink on Mon night though....

I got the hotel name from Lee. It's the nearest I could find.

We can meet up first at Gatwick.:)

It looks like the venue has multiple entrances. This could get confusing :rolleyes:

 

If we arrive in working hours tomorrow we could call into the venue to find out where's best to start queuing. I'm sure they'll be able to help :)

I've got some maps printed out. I'll photocopy them for you. That hotel we're staying at really needs a taxi

 

Kranky68 - do you think our friend might be able to drop me and charming queen off - i think she did offer to drop me back after the show.

err yes, i just heard about that so we need a plan of attack.. i may try to buy a european muse t-shirt before walking as fast as i can (or just running) to the barrier.

It would also be nice of the venue to allow queuing fans to use their toilet facilities like they did at the roundhouse. even better if theres a coffeeshop inside the venue.

I reckon she'd probably do that no problem, like you said she offered for you before

I'm hoping that if running is required (probably will be...) that I don't do a swan dive to the floor like I did at Olympia - never been so embarressed :$:$

We may be able to find this out tomorrow with luck, along with the correct place to queue...

When I went to Lievin in 2009 (it's such a small and obscure place, even the French Muser "L" didn't know that place existed:LOL:). There were portakabin loos and mobile food van in the ground.

I am hoping there will be similar facilities for Montpellier.

A question to people who know the Montpellier airport.

 

Is it possible to walk from the airport? I am not worried about distance as I do a lot of walking but are there footpaths? It looks like a lot of busy roads with nowhere to walk?

 

Thanks :)

 

The airport and the arena are close to each other but I would recommend to take a taxi as there are no footpath and the speed limit is pretty high there. I'm sure you don't want to die before the concert haha ;)

We are here!

Only got 2 hours sleep due to nerves about flying (held out till almost the end of the flight) and excitement about the gig. Am knackered now.

Venue looks nice at night but there are 5 or 6 doors to queue at and no indication as to which one or ones lead into standing. (except 2 are marked as VIP)

French Musers who know the venue - can you help explain which door is for standing and which is for seats? Or can you queue at any?

All very exciting - Kirky said they will play Falling Down :eek:

You will have to use a taxi to go to the hotel. 15 Euros.

I spoke the the man at reception, he said you can check in earlier than 1pm, and leave your bag in the room behind the reception desk.

You can walk to the arena, they will show you the safer way.

Staff speake good English and nice.

See you tomorrow.

 

edit:

Talked to the night reception whose English is less good- you can take the tram to the arena, station Boirargues direction Perols, €1.40, 2 stops to Station Parc expo which is outside the arena. Except it takes 20 minutes walking to the tram station, walking to the arena takes 30 minutes.

She's sat behind people who camped out in tents overnight. I don't envy her one little bit doing battle with the French fans.

I know, she sounds like she might be on the queue next to me. I'm in the middle lane with French guys with a tent in front of me too....
