About the Seats
Peter Gabriel & Sting Concert itself was incredible! But it wasn't worth the money ($250). From the moment we arrived the usher was an unfriendly bitter old man with an attitude. Why he's in the people & service industry is beyond me.
We arrived on time, but seemed like we were two songs deep until the distractions of everyone else late stopped. You have to sit forward in your chair and turn your body to the right in order to be comfortable facing the stage. The lady next to me actually asked me to sit back in my chair so she could see the "monitor"... um... this is a live concert not a movie. I told her that I'd actually prefer to stand like most people do at concerts. After a few songs, still nobody was standing and dancing. We're not that old people. Plus, I know the majority of you sat your asses at a desk all day...don't want to get up and dance to Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey?" Instead, everyone just sat stone faced like a bunch of corpses during the entire show.
ONE lady behind us was enjoying herself and dancing, but the bratty snobs behind her told her "we didn't pay good money to look at your ass." Again, this is a pop C-O-N-C-E-R-T. Not a dinner theater! At one point, we couldn't take the boredom anymore and started to dance. The killjoy usher told us to sit down. I understand that sometimes people are uncomfortable being the first ones getting up, but nobody followed suit. What is wrong with you people? When you listen to music at home, do you just sit in a chair and stare into space too?
I'd recommend the show.. But, I'll never come back to this venue because the concert culture is so suppressed. Ushers take themselves way too serious, and need a good mouthwash. ...More
