First thing Mick Jagger said was for everyone to please turn off their cell phones now.
I don't even remember that. I was too busy trying not to tip off the 90 degree-angled hillock upon which I was sitting. I was also recovering from my Nickelback-induced nausea.
A Nickelback performance; an example of public behaviour everyone can reasonably be offended by.
Sorry joining this discussion a bit late. I hated the way Rolling Stones was seated. We felt like we were the plebs behind the chain fence when there was lots of space on the flat. It really was not an enjoyable way to watch the show. The last Rolling Stones gig we had been to at Western Springs I don’t remember the chain fence. We had cheap seats at that gig too but had the concert stairs/seats to sit on. People who sit in a GA standing area should totally expect that people will stand in front of them.
We had great seats at Lucinda, second row from the front and near the middle. I didn’t mind that it was seated as I don’t really think of dancing to Lucinda. That being said I did do a lot of wriggling in my seat and my mother who was next not to me could not contain herself a couple of times and jumped up briefly and danced, shouted and clapped as she does at concerts. I hope Lucinda does not take to long to come back for another concert. There are so many more of her songs I wanted to see her perform.
I just hope that nobody has been texting at any of these concerts.
Oh, that would be me! Twittering about uptight concert goers, er, funnily enough.
