  • Aside from the bad acoustics that have enclosure (that it is what it is, we assumed), a few highlights: went to the Metallica concert, last Monday, February 05. It was a day of dogs: snow, rain, wind and cold. There were people waiting from the morning. We got in the queue from 14:00 in the afternoon. We passed a first "nominal" control, i.e., the person who had bought the tickets had to teach his flesh, ID card, etc... Up here well. The problem arises when - companion - someone wants to leave a moment to the bathroom, therefore directly cannot, unless it is always accompanied by the holder. Since you do sales nominal (in order to prevent resale), do it for all visitors (each one your ticket with ID) and pass you will have everyone signing. The security company / organization Wizink could have a minimum of consideration with those attending the event: hours in the queue in miserable, crowded conditions like goats, frozen in cold and not able to open the doors 5 minutes before... Just before opening doors, the Coordinator of safety, with chulescas and threatening forms, warning of "don't run and pass 5 on 5, but I bust your face". Does this attitude seem normal to you? For you to give training in "education and manners". Well, cross the street to be cached by another person: go, "laughter": throw bottles, food, umbrellas (up to here well, understand it), but then we even played! I was wearing a belt with plastic and I can assure that within me could have taken everything: knife, American fist, until a gun... The girls even touched them, nor looked at the bag (come on, that any liquid could have crept with disastrous consequences). THEN REGRET AN ATTACK NOT?... After the non-existent "pat-down", we have to remove the entry for the third time. We are already inside, but we have to morvernos down to enter track: again remove entries (shouting, a queue,...). Much chaos the truth... During the concert, the security surrounding the stage (which was mounted in the middle of the track) was more aware of the small flash/lights of mobiles and some stupid guy lighting a cigarette instead of tension that prevailed among participants event: stacked like sardines, people pushing, some fight, come on nothing nice... would exceed the permitted maximum capacity? It certainly seemed it... At the end of the concert, my partner bent down to pick up a needle from the ground (which had just pulled one of the members of the Group) and was punched in the face by another woman. The security saw him and laughed in our face... this behaviour is common with the companies that need to watch over our security? A shame gentlemen... At the end, we are abandoning the site, and blocked us the roads (as a flock) to "Guide" the people out. We get a moment to one side, stuck to a fence in order to get the sweatshirts and jackets (not molstando anyone or blocking the passage) and force us continue walking: "come out, keep marching, walking!". That is, to enter, hours in the queue, opening the doors later and, when it comes out, not 5 minutes so we can a garment? SHAME. This clear in the WIZINK are not prepared to carry out macro. If not take measures, one day, it will be a misfortune. Learn from your mistakes and that it is a matter of concern and I do not think that the community cannot afford a second case "Madrid Arena".

  • In my case, I went to see a basketball game, but when you get close you discover that there are other very interesting events to hundreds.

  • Palace of sports and Palace for concerts, great location, half-acoustic, very well organized entry and organization inside the exquisite Palace, very well organized, somewhat expensive snacks, and drink but what have these sites.
