Default Lyon - Halle Tony Garnier

Going to see the Foos in Lyon on 17th November (booked as Wembley cancelled then also got to see them in MK - woohoo!!). Does anyone know the venue and much about the French fans? It's general entry but looking at pics of the venue there seems to be a standing area and a seating area, so will it change to all standing and is it first-come, first-served? I'd like to get there early to get near the front if possible as I'm hoping the French fans aren't quite as bonkers as the UK fans and I might have a chance of seeing the guys as more than a far, far away dot. Any advice much appreciated!

Hi Hornet!

I live in Lyon and will be attending the show.
there will be a seating area (there was one for the QOTSA show last year).
There is a fairly long way between the gates and the scene, so it's first-come first-serve but if you run fast you can be pretty well located.
I guess that there will be die hard fans who will be at the gates very early.

any other question about the location, public transportation, please ask

According to the venue website, doors at 5:30PM and show at 8:30PM

are you ok with the public transport form the airport to the venue?

rhone express (shuttle) from the airport to "Part dieu" train station
take the subway (all the way across the train station) ligne B stop Debourg.

there are food stands outside the gates.

Thanks for the info, Nicode! We are staying at the Ibis Gerland close to the venue and planning to indeed get the Rhone Express from the airport. In spite of last night's tragic events in Paris we are still planning to go to Lyon if the flights are going even if the Foos cancel. The terrorists will not beat us. Vive la France et l'Europe.

I think it depends on what they are officially advised to do.

Still can't believe it is true.

I hope that your wife's friends are ok.

Regarding the shows, it seems unlikely that the Paris show will happened. For Lyon's, no idea.

That's the band's decision. Let's just hope that they are not canceled, just postponed. But this is just music.
