I would like to give feed back on our experience at the Phil Collins concert.
The Adelaide Oval venue was great.
The concert itself was a great disappointment. As long term fans, we were looking forward to a great night of singing and dancing to the old favourites with a live Phil Collins. Imagine our shock when a man hobbled onto the stage with a walking stick, sat in a chair and announced that he had problems with his back and his foot was "fucked" so he would be doing the concert from sitting in his chair. Added to this he was wearing a tracksuit and looked like he had just been wheeled from a geriatric ward. No effort in presentation and he simply sat and sang with little enthusiasm and the occasional arm wave to his band. What a slap in the face for all his loyal fans.

Despite this, we intended to make the most of our evening and wanted to at least stand and have a dance to the favourites. The security guards were ridiculous. We moved to the side of the seating on the oval so that we weren't in anyone's way. We were told we were not allowed to be there and had to dance in front of our chairs only, even though we impeded people's view behind us. This then earned us comments from people sitting behind us about sitting down. I told them what the security guard had told me. During the concert we got up several times to either get a drink or go to the toilet, having a jig whilst walking back to our seating.
we even stayed at the very back of the seating on the oval where there was a very large open space so that we could dance on the spot without interrupting anyone else's view. There were other people standing there also doing the same. When we got back to our seats the security guards then told me I was not allowed to walk around. Seriously!!! His attitude was extremely aggressive and every time we stood up to dance in front of our seats, he instantly went 'on guard' eye balling us. Again, seriously , we were at a concert !!!

We have been to many live concerts and most times, there is an area set aside for standing or dancing, why was that not provided here.
we may be older but we're 'not dead yet'. There were so many people standing in the front rows dancing as best possible and those people behind had to watch the screens as they couldn't see the stage.

We are regular concert goers and living remote we have to fly to these venues). However, the concert has left a bitter taste. Many people on the way out from the concert were of the same opinion.
