i need to work out what time is best to get there. obviously, because it's seating, the earlier the better

I wonder if us "normal" people upstairs will have a different entrance from the "stars" downstairs? I mean, maybe there will be a red carpet and press and the like?

Normally at Brixton you can move up/down the stairs easily to access the different bars but I am sure there will be restrictions on Wednesday.

That's what I'm wondering. Although they have that funny standing pit bit at the front don't they? What's the deal with that?

My friend who works in industry is going, she said she's having to stand cause they don't have a table..
I didn't really understand what she meant. i.e. why she doesn't just sit where we do?


Also: of course there'll be a different enterance for us, if the "stars" all came in the same door, they'd be harrassed etc.

well that was last year...there was a standing area for either fans...or VIP or whatever ..im not sure. tickets to the general public were only seating (though when i bought my ticket, it was standing initially...then they changed it to seating).

not sure of the layout this year. though it's gonna be more of a 'Foo Fighters' night than anything else, there SHOULD be a standing area infront of the band to play.

I hope they have that little pit thing in front of the band, gives it more of a concert vibe and some lucky people will be able to see the performance up close!
Not me though, my plane only lands at 4 pm, so no hope for good seats.

I imagine the Poo Crew would go in earlier though?

I'm not really sure about how long this will take me, but I need to go from Stansted into London, find my hotel, drop my bags there and race to Brixton...I'd imagine at the very least two hours, more like 2 1/2?

You've not been able to get an earlier finish then?

Doors are at 7 I think. If the queues still outside by the time you get there you can still jump in.

That would be great..I'm not sure if it works out though, as I'll also have to pick up my ticket at the venue still, but I'll try to be fast & not to get lost on the way.

Get on the Victoria line southbound and get off at Brixton. When leaving the station turn right. Cross the road whenever you can and head down the road you're on. You'll come to what looks like the end of the shops and a left turn. There's the academy. You can't miss it.

I've got to pick mine up at the venue too since See are shit. Apparently ordering a whole week before the gig isn't enough time for them to send it in first class mail, despite their T&Cs saying that some tickets won't be sent until... a week before the gig.
