Video Games Live from James Stalley-Moores, 11/11/14
To start with, the event was great, five stars easily, the performances were fantastic, everything I had hoped for. Tommy and the orchestra were fantastic, and the video screens were good...when I could see them. You see, I booked seats on the Circle 11, Row F, 1 and 2, and as soon as we sat down it became apparent that we couldnt see the main screen, due to a massive speaker blocking it, now I booked the seats a while back, and its really tough picking a good spot, however no where did it indicate that the seating was low visibility. Video games are a visual medium and my partner and I were pretty miffed we couldnt see anything. Now its worth noting we spoke to an usher and found spare seats, but at £45 a pop, I am pretty disappointed the first 15 minutes of the performances were spoiled by the lack of visibility. Additionally the left hand spot light was nearly constantly pointed at our faces, and I had to mask the light with my hand, pretty disappointing. So good show, very poor seating and it almost ruined it for us.
