Cheers on the bag feedback just getting unnecessarily twitchy for nothing! Don't want anything to slow me down on the way in but I guess I don't have a choice

Has anyone ever driven to the Etihad and parked there? Sounds like it's pretty straightforward from all I've read (understandably a pain getting out), just slightly worried there's no pay before you get there, just pay when you're there. As long as it doesn't fill up before I get there then I'm happy

Thanks, I did note quite a lot of more affordable ones near the docklands and Excel centre...in fact we stayed there when G'n'R played the London Stadium and it would have been fine, if the DLR wasn't out of action and replacement buses being used!

Hi All.
Very excited about Saturday.
Not had the pleasure of visiting the London stadium before.
myself and a group of 6 friends want to try and get to the front of the stage if possible.
Does the stadium allow people to get there early and start queuing/sitting on the floor first thing?
thanks

Tonight's PEARL JAM gig has been cancelled (Eddie has lost his voice)... I am consoled by the imminent two FOO FIGHTERS gigs this weekend

I thought you meant the DLR was out of action this weekend! Just had a panic as thats my route to Stratford

I know. I'm in mourning. This was meant to be my gig week, so inconsiderate! In all seriousness it must be bad to cancel so I hope he's better soon. I have Deftones tomorrow, Foos @ James Corden on Thurs then the gigs on Friday and Saturday to get me through. And I have just got back from Download Paris with a distinct lack of energy so may be a blessing in disguise.

Yes, was about to leave my hometown of Southend-on-Sea for the Pearl Jam gig in East London. Very gutted.

I just checked into my hotel around 3pm after travelling from Edinburgh on my own and saw the news.

I know they couldn't play but I am pissed that I won't make a rescheduled date unless its the day before The Cure.

lots of fans cant get into the stadium right now, as their Ticketmaster tickets won't scan.

Ah mate, gutted for you! I remembered you saying you were travelling down. Apparently there's a pearl jam cover band playing somewhere, why don't you check that out?

That is so bad. I feel so sorry for all those people.

Glad to hear it's sorted now though.
