So, who's sitting where at the Royal Albert Hall?

Postby Born With The Gift Of A G » Wed Nov 12, 2008 8:47 pm

Just thought I'd commence a new thread out of curiosity to see where the various members of this Forum will be located for the concerts at the Royal Albert Hall next week.

As for me (and my first wife):

Monday, 17th November 2008

Stalls
Block M
Row 1
Seats 83 & 84.

As it's my birthday, all gifts would be welcomed, particularly in the form of Jarkko using his considerable influence with LC's management to arrange for the sublime Webb Sisters to jump out of a huge cake in my honour....

HI Born - I am just behind you row 2 seat 84 and 85.

I suppose you call her your first wife to keep her on her toes.

Tinderella - glad you are going to the RAH I was hoping for some advice on my Dedrie Barlow glasses.

And you would be SITTING on the stage? Poor performance indeed, even 74-years old Leonard keeps skipping about, standing, kneeling and moving a lot... So I would always be lurking at his backstage door instead of yours, if I were into lurking at doors at all! :D

I've had this on my HD for a while.
This may also be of some help. If you squint enough you should be able to locate actual seats. Or download the image and blow it up in a photo programme
Please excuse size but it was a low resolution to start with and reducing it would only make it even more illegible

Seats 80 and 81, to be exact... so that means there's a single mystery person between myself and Barry. I hope it's Alan Rickman, so I can surreptitiously put my hand on his leg. :razz:

Gina - don't make Leonard jealous! :shock:
Might well be Bill Nighy, too! Not bad, either, but in case you don't agree, he could probably introduce you to Alan, don't you think? Although that might involve having to put your hand onto his leg first...

List updated...

@ Jarkko: I see you have completed your own seats in the list, but shouldn't it be the other way around? Stalls M of Monday and Stalls H for Tuesday? That seems more logic to mee, no?

Take care,
Maarten

I hope whoever is responsible for all this detailed seating information realises that if one of our forum members falls prey to an assassin's bullet on Monday night they will have a lot to answer for.
