The Pet Shop Boys at the NIA

Went to see the pet shop Boys at the National Indoor arena in birmingham last Friday. they were brilliant. they played a mixture of their old hits and some meterial from their latest album which is really good. They finished off with an excellent cynical song called “it doesn’t often snow at christmas” which I hadn’t heard before and downloaded from amazon when I got back.

I must say that having been to the NIA twice now, their support for disabled people is fantastic. our seats were way up high, but when we showed the tickets to staff, we were moved to the disabled area on the concourse almost directly opposite the stage so ended up with far better seats than we’d expected. the setup there is very good. If you require assistance you can present yourself at the stage door reception which is very easy to get to and they radio for help for you there. A definite thumbs up to that venue.

    Hi Mel! I’m glad to read here that you enjoyed the Pet Shop Boys concert you went to in Birmingham. It’s also great to know that the staff at the National Indoor Arena are very helpful to anyone with a disability.
