We attended the Classical Spectacular there as a birthday treat for our daughter. The concert was almost a sell-out, so we were right at the top in the very last row of seating. Far from being a bad viewpoint this was actually the best place to be. The view is really quite magnificent and this was actually the very best place in the house to see and enjoy the laser lights, fireworks and the display of the Moscow Militia. We spent more than 3 hours enjoying the concert, waving flags and singing along. It was a beautiful and emotional experience.
If you are up in the back row you can feel a little vertigo at first because the banks of seating are very steep, but it is still well worth putting up with as you get used to the vantage point quickly and the view is just magnificent.
The acoustics are very good so there is no issue hearing the conductor when he speaks to the public and you do get a quite fabulous elevated view of the stage, the boxes and the magnificent decoration of the hall.
One slight inconvenience is that the toilets have a long queue in the break and the bars are after very crowded, but these are minor things. The whole experience of attending a concert at the Royal Albert Hall is just a feast for the senses.
