Oasis - Thursday 16th October - Wembley Arena

Basically what a farce. Why can't Wembley get all standing ticket holders into the venue before the show starts? Queued for nearly an hour from just after 8pm and missed 25 minutes of the show! Not happy! Neither were the hundreds still behind us when we got in to the 2 single file search lines inside. Total incompetance and a near riot.

After calming down, what was left of the show was really good (although watching later the recording on MTV, Liam's vocals were pretty rank!).. nearly every song is a singalong and the advantage of being further back was that we didn't get soaked by the idiots throwing beer.

Afterwards spent 30 minutes after the show at the management office writing down the details of our dis-satisfaction... glad we got there quickly - there was a long queue soon afterwards!

[As a footnote I should add that I got a nice reply from Wembley to my complaint, explaining what went wrong on the night and making a suitable gesture of goodwill]
