Great concert in a great place. Didn’t feel rammed in and had lots of floor room around us.
Lots of staff and Security which make you feel safe and was welcomed by the staff when they where checking our tickets.

Having visited the Symphony Hall on several occasions we have concluded that seats on the side do not offer the best sound.Seated on level 4 A14 and 15 the view was excellent allowing for good photos to be taken (brilliant that this was allowed) but the sound for the two support acts was poor only heard from the left ceiling mounted speaker and did not do them justice.
The sound for the Shires was good but still could have been improved.The performance was superb and perhaps the best contemporary concert we have seen there. Chrissie and Ben made sure the audience were fully involved and seemed humbled by the fantastic audience response.The lighing effects for the Shires was excellent but did they would benefit fromspot lights from the front the pick the duo out. Despite the poor sound at the start it was a great night.

My wife and I first visit to the Symphony Hall, and I was most impressed. Helpful staff, lovely plush seating, plenty of toilets, and bars. The acoustics were excellent, and the concert fantastic.

Nice venue, well organized, good seats and good sound. As the Bunnymen themselves would say “It Was A Pleasure”.
