Hey I'm currently browsing StubHub....I am torn between getting a free standing ticket and seated (section 101 or 102). My recent experience in Tokyo's Summer Sonic Fest to see Radiohead was really rough as a petite woman - the moshing up front was crazy (beats me, why would people mosh to Radiohead is beyond me) and I had to be lifted out because I felt like dying. Plus, being a foreigner, they were extra rough towards me especially when I screamed out of legit pain.
I would really want a meaningful experience with every AB gig, in Jakarta I was right up front and Asians being Asians, we were a very mild bunch and didn't go crazy. So I enjoyed that one and it's high up in the concert benchmark for me.
So my questions are:
Are the UK goers usually rough? For AB at least?
How early does the crowd wait in the UK? If I get the FS tickets, I'd like to gauge when I should start lining up - I'm okay with 5-6 hours
Especially for AB damnit!
Are the seated sections really that bad though? I mean I bet the sound system would be amazing throughout the arena but visibility wise? (okay Myles' thighs come to mind....)
