Rolling With The Stones At Murrayfield
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
We arrived at Murrayfield & were directed to handicapped parking which was close to the stadium; there were no hold ups or delays. A member of staff then took us to the entrance & left us at the lift where we were met by other stewards who were happy to help. Although there was a raised viewing platform for wheelchair users on the pitch (which was floored over) our seats were in an accessible section on the first tier. The view was fantastic & we were protected from the weather. The raised viewing platform, however, offered no shelter from the elements but I am unable to comment on the view or access though the access certainly looked good. Overall it was an amazing night with an electrically charged atmosphere.
Transport & Parking
We drove and parked on site in reserved disabled parking spaces. There were no problems in getting parked, it was straight off the public road & a two minute drive on site.
Access throughout was very good with stewards on hand at all times. The only aspect that I felt could have been improved was the lift which was only accessible for 1 wheelchair at a time. This was not a problem on the way in although we had an approx. 15 minute wait at the end but the staff made every effort to keep things moving. The seating was excellent & struck the right balance between a clear view & inclusivity.
Although I did not use them, there were 2 accessible toilets close by. They were clean & spacious with handlebars & an emergency cord. It appeared that the stewards were controlling access to these toilets.
All the staff were really helpful & friendly & could not have done any more to help.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
I definitely recommend it to others & hope to return for another concert although the next one has a lot to live up to.
