What is a genting area?

MadForlt Fri 24-Nov-17 19:06:21

Ooh arena. Ignore me.

LardLizard Fri 24-Nov-17 19:08:04

You can see block 17 across from it. It doesn't look great.

Who are you seeing?
I saw Royal Blood sat down at the side last weekend and they were good. Not the same as being at the front, but ok.

Virtual tour thing gives this image from block 17
Google “Genting Arena view from block 17” and click on images

Is it for a concert with a stage at one end?

I've been there are it wasn't as big as I was expecting and I wouldn't dismiss it out of hand but tbh I'd need a bit more info to say definitely one way or the other

MadForlt Fri 24-Nov-17 19:10:58

Overnight, that looks as if it's from block 16,not 17.

SandyDenny Fri 24-Nov-17 19:14:10

I think I've misunderstood, I couldn't see the numbers properly on your photo, if it's level with the stage then maybe not

overnightangel Fri 24-Nov-17 19:14:12

Ah right
This pic says 16 so 17 May be pointless/ massively restricted view/behind stage

LardLizard Fri 24-Nov-17 19:14:39

It’s just a singer
So not particularly a spectical
If you see what I mean

It is close to the stage
But didn’t know if I’d be better getting one facing the stage but far back
As there none at the front

overnightangel Fri 24-Nov-17 19:15:02

Sorry didn’t send pic

overnightangel Fri 24-Nov-17 19:15:52

If you’re seeing Foo Fighters don’t bother
If you’re seeing David Copperfield, May be excellent seats 🙂

It's not a massive arena tbh (think capacity for concerts is around 15k). I also find that every artist uses video screens these days so you can still see most of it. The car parking/traffic management on that site however leaves a lot to be desired, and after the last concert we attended there took us nearly 2 hours to exit the car park we've not booked anything else there.

Not worried about parking as will get the train or stay overnight
