Was in section 121, Â£150 seats, near back row of the lower tier. Sound was terrible for The Hours, better for Elbow and better again for U2, but far fromperfect. Bono's voice seemed slightly helium-ish at times, like all the lower mid had been removed. He was unintelligible when talking.
During all of The Hours, most of Elbow and during parts of U2, something in the stadium near us was rattling like crazy. I think it might have been the metalpanels underneath the overhang of the middle tier, or thinking about, maybe there was an ad or sign on the face of the middle tier. Whatever it was, veryannoying.
Night wasn't helped by the fact one off the legs of the claw completely obscured Bono and Adam whenever they were in their traditional positions on thestage. Didn't see Bono at all in his laser jacket or any of his antics with the suspended mic for example. We still enjoyed the show loads, but would haveenjoyed it loads more if our seats had been the two to the left or right of where we were as at least we'd have seen the whole band at pretty much alltimes.
Hoping for better at Sheffield and Cardiff.
