Grand evening - 2 x great bands and just the right amount of people!
Liked: It was all fine.
Disliked: Nothing in particular.
Carole D, Ediy
Love an all standing venue - it really adds to the experience.
Liked: Quickly in. Plenty of room. Bar service efficient.
Disliked: Ladies toilets downstairs.
Deborah R, Edinburgh
Liked: Good lay out in bar and arena area.
Disliked: The queue management was poor. Security staff didn't have a clue. Concert goers with online tickets reached the doors only to be sent back to queue again at the Ticket Office to exchange online tickets for proper tickets, and then queue a third time to get in! We were there primarily to see Banfi, the support band and only got in in time due to the kindness of other concert goers who let us jump the third queue!

The Stranglers were in their best form yet. The Ruts DC were fantastic too. Just a brilliant night!
Liked: Excellent seating with good view. Good bar facilities.
Disliked: Pity the outside of the building looks so tatty.

Went to see Parkway Drive and I have to say one of the best security teams - they never let anything get out of hand, were very quick to scan tickets and search you in order for you to see the gig quicker. When the crowd began to crowd surf, security kept it under control and made sure everyone was safe. Size of venue was great, the gig was very busy but you still had room to move around. Great venue overall.
Liked: Friendly security staff.
Disliked: Queueing system was not the greatest.
A good venue, just not served well by taxis after the event.
Liked: Toilets relatively clean.
Disliked: Drinks very expensive and cocktails/beer tasted watered down.
Liked: Fantastic atmosphere.
Kenneth T, Carlisle
Good, well organised show.
Liked: Good sized venue; excellent staff.
Disliked: Price of drinks was extortionate - Â£8.50 for two drinks. Ridiculous!
Mike S, Kindeace
Nice to see this grand old theatre being well used today. Easily accessible from the city centre by bus and tube with good nearby (200 yards) parking. Staff and bouncers were chirpy and helpful. The balcony seating means us older guys don't have to endure the mosh downstairs. Very civilised!
Liked: Great views of the band from everywhere in the house.
Disliked: Nothing at all, honest.
