I went to the Rihanna gig on Thursday night and have to agree with a fellow reviewer that there was just no organisation whatsoever, it was just a free for all. We kept getting pushed around with the safety stewards having no idea where people were meant to go. In the end, despite paying for standing tickets we decided to keep away from the crowds by sitting in some empty seats right at the top of the stadium and thank god we did as there were fights breaking out all over the place. It was only a matter of time before someone got hurt. I really don't think stadiums should be allowed to sell alcohol either as this seems to fuel the fighting and most people were drunk before the gig even started. Overall a disappointing venue and an even more disappointing gig. I will never understand why artists choose to go here over St James Park, which is more central and a bigger venue. In the end this was not worth all the hassle as Rihanna wasn't very good.
