Wembley, a Nightmare to Remember
Madonna fans who attended yestreday’s Sticky & Sweet Tour in London didn’t know they were embarking into a day that was going to become a nightmare.
Both Live Nation and the Wembley National Stadium staff were treating customers in a totally unacceptable way.
The Hot Ticket customers – reportedly counted in as much as 1.250 people – who paid £249.00 to live what they call “an experience” were continously treated with no respect by the rude and very aggressive security staff of the venue and when they were just trying to ask normal questions about the utterly unorganized way they were handling their entrance in the stadium, they were told they didn’t even know that people were let in.
A shot and bossy blond security manager even had the gut to tell people who paid £249.00 to get the famous “priority access” to shut up or she wouldn’t let them in the pitch but kicked them out of the stadium.
Security kept telling people to “talk
to the promoter” (Live Nation) because it was all their fault. Live Nation people were blaming local staff. So basically it was the fans that didn’t get the respect they deserved in the end.
To make things worse people a lot of people from the seated sections report that they could hardly hear anything during the show from their over priced seats and when they told the venue staff, they simply said they had to “complain to Madonna”.
To complete the night, thousands people, a sea of people (as you can see from the photo below) were left “trapped” in front of the tube station that simply closed its door after midnight and all the only way police dealt with the situation was by saying “go away, get back to the Stadium to make phone calls and to get water, find a bus”. It was a really shameful way of treateing turists, families, happy fans who assumed London was a civil city to live in and people are being taken care of in case of need when these huge events are taking place.
Fans and Live Nation customers are really fuming today. Please contact Live Nation and the Wembley venue to complain about the unbelivable disorganization they have handled the only Madonna date in London, ruining it for so many people.
