Following its 2011 – 2012 refurbishment, the LG Areana is a great concert venue. I went to see Billy Joel and were seated towards the rear of Block 7. Approaching the venue from the Motorway (M42; Junction 6) you follow signs to the designated car parks (first come, first parked). There are numerous car parks on site. After you park you need to buy a car parking ticket (usually £8.00) from the adjacent kiosk before you catch the shuttle bus to the Arena. These are frequent. The electricity 2pm lyrics nearest car parks to the arena are on the south side. Parking for those with special needs are immediately outside the arena. The west car park is often the quietest car park, but the access under the railway to the rear of the Arena (past the stage door) is not always in use – if not, you need to go via the Birmingham International station and the NEC Piazza. Buses take only 5 minutes to reach car parks; walking times (along clearly defined and signposted routes) are West – 15 minutes; East – 15 minutes; South – 10 minutes gas prices going up in nj. Arriving by train you get off at Birmingham International Station and walk through the NEC piazza – 10 minutes. In the piazza are some catering outlets e.g. J D Wetherspoons. Taxis drop customers near the piazza or by the South Car Parks – that is where they pick up after the show. There is an express parking area that is situated only 2 minutes from the Arena. The main entrance is at the southern end of the building. There are 2 major areas in the venue, immediately behind the automated ticket barriers (Stewards are there to help by scanning your ticket) you enter the Forum. This contains two large bar areas and 2 sweet/snack kiosks and 4 take away eateries for Fish and Chips, pizzas, burgers and hot dogs. There are scattered tables and chairs. There is also a couple of food outlets next to the smoking pass out area. There is no cloakroom. Before the show there is some entertainment in the Forum. Also in the Forum is a merchandising stall. There are mobile electricity and magnetism study guide answers programme sellers. There are also toilets and access to the Box Office. There are 2 cash machines. There is free wi-fi in the arena, but demand is huge when there is a big audience!!! If you are on the Amplify packages you have pre-show food in the Tower and Show decks with special entrances and seating. You approach the arena bowl down 2 sloping walkways that lead onto concourses either side of the arena. If seated in upper blocks 7 -11 you do not use the concourses but enter from behind the merchandising stall. Blocks 1-6 are to the right (eastern side of the arena) and blocks 12 – 16 are to the left (western side). If standing or in seated blocks A-F you can approach from either side. If you are in the standing area you are given a wristband on entry which you must not remove. The arena seats gas and water mix 15,000 when full and there are plenty of stewards in and around the arena with clearly marked shirts. They are very knowledgeable and give good advice when asked. Both concourses contain bars, merchandising areas, sweet stalls and take away food outlets. Also toilets, including disability facilities. Drinks and food are allowed in seating areas, though they are usually decanted when in the standing areas. The arena is generously sized with ample spaces around the bowl for circulation. There is an on-site medical room. Acoustics can be an issue but this depends on the concert gas in spanish production team. It can get hot in the bowl when full but the air conditioning can be boosted. There are some restricted view seats but talking to the Box Office (near the main entrance) can usually resolve problems. The tribune seats are steep to get to and sometimes can feel very far away from the stage. Seats have been improved and are generally comfortable and there is plenty of legroom. Most people stand when the concert is on – so expect this. There is a lost property booth near the main entrance. The venue has a very strict policy on unruly behaviour or drunkenness and smoking and a warning is given out over the public address.

Had a great night at the LG Arena to see Billy Joel. We hadn’t been since he last appeared here and in the last 7 years the venue seems to have been improved somewhat. Plenty of helpful staff, good to see security in operation, and loads of toilet facilities! They could do with putting some seating in the various food halls and other areas, as lots of people were sitting around on the floor eating their incredibly harry mileaf electricity 1 7 pdf expensive fish chips etc! The food is very expensive so we prefer to have tea before we go and then a picnic supper in the car, at the end of the concert, while we watch everyone queue to get out of the car parks! The seats at the LG are about as comfortable as you can get at this sort of venue and the place seemed clean and tidy. I think it’s a mistake to allow alcoholic drinks to be taken into the auditorium as it means people continually getting up to presumably go to the toilet. This is very annoying! As we were sat grade 9 static electricity quiz on the side in the tiered seats, people in front of us didn’t spend most of the night standing, so that was great as we could remain seated until the encores. However, people on the flat level, had to stand for virtually the whole show as people at the front seemed to insist on standing, even on the non-danceable quieter songs. All in all a great night out. (If you think a Billy Joel ‘Hoodie’ at £50 is expensive, try a bag of Revels or Maltesers at £3!)
