OK, so I stand in line for five hours, I'm one of the first into the Arena, and the crisis hits: where's the best place in front of the stage to be? The "catwalk"? The stage itself? Left or right? I'd really appreciate any input on this one.

Thanks in advance,

Greg

At the front of the mini-stage. No doubts about it.

That's what I think as well. It's going to be a bit "crowdier" ;) there near the catwalk

I went to Dortmund and Rotterdam.
Dortmund I was at then end of the Catwalk, so sometimes very near to Paul,Bri,Roger.

In Rotterdam I was RIGHT of the catwalk in the corner at the front of the stage. Because Brian plays on that side!

I found the base of the catwalk was a stellar place to be...you got a perfect view and then were really close when Brian sat down right there in front of you to play LOML and '39 and when Roger played the bongos for Seagull...

Yes, front of the catwalk is by far the best place to stand.

On stage or backstage or hanging in the lamps, sitting on the big screen...

i think that the best place is in front of Brian May, at the right of the stage, you can see him playng guitar and all the techinque that he uses.

Also, you don't want to stand too close to the stage. because you will miss all those wonderful light effects! Believe me, they are worth watching!"

Hey, thanks for asking! 'Big Cicadas' is selling well, although I need to find another publisher to reprint it since the current one went out of business...Hopefully not because of me ;)

The poetry chapbook also did well, and a full collection of my work is coming out over the summer. It's called "Four Autumns."

How'd you find out? But if you want copies, let me know and I'll send them along...

Right in front of the catwalk, without any doubt!!!! That's where I was in Budapest, at first just a little to the left, but managed to get right in front of it. Of course, you'll probably get some bruises, but it's worth it!!! Brian and Spike touched my hand, I'm not washing them any more, lol;))))))))))


Give me a good guitar, and you can say that my hair's a disgrace, oh, just find me an open car - I'll make the speed of light out of this place...
