“One direction- stewards reply.”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Hello everyone, I hope everyone enjoyed there visit to the etihad, it was a pleasure to be able to host you all. I've read most of the reviews posted around the one direction concert dates, very nice to hear a lot of the reviews commented on our work, and how we acted. And also an apology to everyone who wasn't happy with us, I read one review mentioning a female steward commenting on telling the reviewer to sit down and there not allowed to dance. I think this is horrible, and I'm sorry that you had this experience. I apologise. Many thanks.

“One Direction Concert 30th May”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Went with my daughter & granddaughter, 1D were amazing well worth the money, the stadium is impressive the only thing that went wrong was the traffic chaos after the show, what should have been a maximum hour journey home took 3hrs ! very bad planning the car park was left unmanned by "event parking" which was disgraceful and 5 queues of traffic trying to get out of one entrance. No traffic cops around. If this had been a football match this would not have happened, so come on Manchester get organised for next time.

I took my daughter to see One Direction on Saturday 31/5/14 and unfortunatly she was taken ill shortly after the start with her heart condition. We were sat in block 116 and as soon as I alerted the stewards, they did everything in there powers to help us. Infact they weny above and beyond their roll.
I would like to personally Thank those members of staff who helped my daughter and I.
