    It seems I’m not alone in my opinions:

    A quick Googleing of “MEN Arena” throws up a large number of reviews (not particularly about a Kylie concert) such as:

    * “One of the worst concrerts I have had the misfortune to attend. From where we were sitting (Block 114 lower) the sound was awful and why were there no video screens?”

    * “started 20 minutes late. Distorted sound. Over-amplified to a painful level.”

    * Gigwise columnist Gill Ripley sums it up rather succinctly in her opening paragraph of a recent review. She writes: “In the intestines of hell, otherwise known as the MEN Arena…”

    Seems they got it right in the end. A friend of ours went to the last night of Kylie’s Manchester stint and reported on our Facebook page:

    “She was great – like you – I hate the MEN – always get lost trying to get back to my seat – she sounded good though.”

    Nevertheless, a good sound engineer get’s it right first time!
