Having exchanged several Emails with the MEN Arena about them not wanting to let a guide dog into the arena, I was quite nervous about going to the Jean Michel Jarre concert. The final agreement was that yes I could go into the arena with my dog but if it was thought there wasn’t enough room, I’d have to go and sit on a camera platform.
I eventually decided not to take the dog as I didn’t want to cause an argument and lose the central seats I had bought for a birthday present for my partner.
We arrived at the arena, and I have to say, the staff and assistance were superb. What we particularly noticed was how courteous the staff were. Nothing seemed too much trouble to them and they ensured that we had a very stress free evening.
Jean Michel Jarre was absolutely fantastic. The only slight down side was that he played Oxygene part 4, and then played it a second time for an encore which was unfortunate.
He also played a tune which he said he wrote for his father who has recently died. I have no idea what it was called unfortunately which is a shame because I really want it.
