It was interesting that Mark Kelly said the position of the screen by the  Atyeo allowed articulated lorries to drive into the pitch. I’m sure that if the Atyeo is ever redeveloped Ashton Gate won’t become a complete bowl as a bowl would remove this facility. It seems that big summer concerts in the summer are here to stay.

The comments about the park and ride were also interesting. It wasn’t perfect, but the buses transported a lot of people. If this can be done for the Spice Girls, surely  we could have better park and ride arrangements on match days.

I take it, that they still didn't open the LA Park n Ride?

I'm told the gates were locked at 10:45. You would have to miss the end of the concert to get (walk) back to your car. Last Metrobus at Ashton Gate stop was around 10:10 I believe.

They seem to be doing this stuff on purpose don`t they? The only event I can recall it actively being promoted for was the Balloon Fiesta and, surprise, surprise that`s not held at AG.

A load of bloody jobsworths in charge IMO.

It’s a great article, well worth the read. Interesting point about the lorries getting access to the pitch. I know at one point there was 18 lorries on the pitch, after Take That, and they looked tiny such is the scale of the stadium.

i can only echo that my experience ( Take That) and the experience of family members ( Muse & Spice Girls) was one of the most organised, friendly gigs that I have been to. A lot of thought and organisation had gone into the planning as the article says. This has got to hold us in a good light for future events.

He struggled to sell out Cheltenham Town a few weeks ago, maybe he'd be better in the Heineken lounge?

You realise that it's the end of the season, right? Not much happening at the moment...

I didn’t realise you were forced to click on this thread.

Mods, can we have an option to skip threads that don’t interest us? It’s not fair that these threads open up without us choosing to open them.

Don't worry, we understand how inconvenient it can be when threads randomly open and force us to reply. We're looking in to it after a similar complaint from @Robbored.

A dedicated forum for obscure Swedish bands who haven't yet made it, but could be a good fit for Ashton Gate forum.

This is what the people want.

How do you think we played last night? What do you reckon about the new Keeper ? I think we are onto a good thing with our new Striker too. A Hat Trick on his debut and what a celebration, he already has a great song too. 

Well if you can chat shit so can I ! 😀

Not the gate but we went to Elton John at Cardiff on Saturday and that was certainly not how to put on a concert. Forty minutes to get in with one man tearing each individual ticket , big queues for drinks once inside and no food offerings whatsoever if you wanted it. An utter shambles if i have ever seen one , certainly wouldn't go back there through choice .

The wife who went to TT at the gate said it was no comparison and made Cardiff look like the 3rd world which it is . :laugh:. Just goes to show what a great job @Mkelly and his team have achieved at the Gate. Big round of applause for all involved .👏
