“Peter Gabriel”

Barclaycard Arena Hamburg
Ranked #63 of 334 things to do in Hamburg
Attraction details
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I attended Peter Gabriel's "Back to front tour" last month. There was security at the entrance. And everything moved forward at a good pace.

Food: We decided to get a quick bite to eat at the arena. There was plenty to choose from. We decided to have a hotdog with the works.. which ended up being a sausage in a hotdog bread. We had to make "all the works" ourselves. I don't mind making my own hotdog.. but with that price.. and 50 other people using the only "one" cucumber utensil, I find it unappetising. Hygiene should be a serious consideration for the o2 team.

Unfortunately there is quite a difference from the o2 Berlin. Here the toilets were not clean, the eating areas were left with left overs. And the fountains where we had to make our food to order were messy with leftovers and droppings.

The staff: helpful and sweet as always.

The sound: There were no delay issues - just the vocals were way too sharp. Which made me use my 15 dB filtered earplugs. A bummer if one wants to hear the clean sound.

The seating area:
The row numbers are located on the steps and not on the side of the first seat. It was next to impossible to find our row. With the lights turned off for the warm up act, we had to ask people which row they were seated on. It would have been helpful if the row numbers were lit or the o2 staff could highlight the row number with their torches. Space wise, the seats are pretty tight. There was not much leg room [ good to be short! :-) ]

I saw Neil Young in concert here band it's the usual soulless sports arena come concert venue. The bar area however does sell good food. The venue is situated outside the city and is s 1.4 km walk from the S-Bahn though there is a shuttlebus. The HSV football Says is over the road

Attended concert by James Last the fantastic 84 year old band leader. Naturally most fans are of mature age yet door staff treated them like football fans searching bags for water bottles and removing tops! Yes they could be a missile but how ridiculous was it that because of the rain most visitors were allowed in with umbrellas. Surely a golf umbrella with its metal spike is more dangerous than a plastic bottle?

Apart from this the venue is great with food and drink at just about acceptable prices. The floor staff in the arena were excellent. Very helpful and friendly. Happy to return for other concerts.

Have been to O2 World for numerous concerts and, to me, it is the perfect indoor arena.

Catering is absolutely perfect (yes, prices are high but not steep and by no means vertical), staff is professional and acustoming and great acts find thir way to O2 World.

Go there and be amazed!
