I’d consider Placebo as one of all time favourite bands – and they have been for such a long time. This would be my third time seeing the band and also the largest venue I’d seen them play – an arena!! I decided to go for a seated ticket because I’m quite short and I wouldn’t be able to see anything if I was on the floor. Plus, the last time I was standing, the crowd was pretty rowdy – was not a good experience having drunken middle aged men bashing into me.
It was my first time alone being seated at an arena show. I have to admit it was a bit awkward because I arrived a little bit early. I had one row of people in front of me before the floor, and there was a young security guard who was facing directly towards me – his job was to check that only people with standing tickets were allowed onto the floor. I bet he was looking at me and thinking I was a bit strange. And I could all around and opposite me that the seats hadn’t quite filled up yet. However, my seat was amazing in my opinion haha. I was sat in number 1, so I had no one to my left. And I had a wonderful view of the stage.
