Went to see Russell Peters at Flash Forum. Overall, the show was okay, would have been better if not for two annoying audiences. The venue's parking space is good enough for the number of viewers/venue capacity. Helpful ushers/usherettes to assist you to your seats and other inquiries (directions to ticket collection booth, washrooms, bar, etc.). However, as the venue is near the airport and not sound proof, we could hear the airplanes landing/departing while the show was on going. Russell just made a joke out of it. Also, a map on their website would be helpful. The seatings are good considering we paid for a closer seat. Crew should ensure though that the microphones are and will work well throughout the show. Would have been better if the audience would refrain from standing up to go to the loo or get a beer or two. Can they not do that before the show start? Doors were opened an hour before the show.
Also would suggest to have tickets sent on email to avoid having to queue at the booth, having the option to print it at home and present at the gates.
At the Scissor sisters concert we went right to the front of the stage, I asked security if I could rest my drinks the other side of the fencing and he said no but when some girl who barged her way to the front tried to knock my husbands camera out of his hand, constantly jabbing him in the ribs to get to the front and the guy next to her security did nothing. I have witnesses to this. When we wouldn't let her in bit my husband and left bite marks on his shoulder, he bit her 2 times. When we called security over they did nothing.
Secondly I don't understand why the VIP section is at the back of the Forum, it makes no sense at all. If you pay more money you expect to get closer to the band you have paid for not further away.
