Tickets now available!

Marianne Faithfull will also perform on July 2 in Berlin - what a coincidence (as even "long time friend" of Leonard):

where to stay

Postby roselynn » Sun Mar 22, 2009 8:03 pm

I have just bought tickets for July 2nd in Berlin. Never been there and wonder if anyone can help me decide where to stay. A guest house not too far from concert site would be great. Any help appreciated, I will be flying in from Bangkok. Went to the centinial park gig in Australia in February, cant believe how lucky I am to be in Europe for the summer and see him again.

Last October the majority of our meetup members stayed at the East Side Hotel, which in fact is the neighbour buildung of the O2 and at the Junckers Hotel which is 10 Minutes walk from the O2.

I use HRS to book hotels.

It's good because you can cancel most reservations at last minute without a financial loss.

At "Show distance" please select "Berlin Ostbahnhof" and you will have listed the hotels close to the O2.

Hi Henning

Thanks for the hotel tips. As I will be travelling to Berlin on my own I have opted for the East Side Hotel as the nearest to the O2. Hope to see some of you there!

Have been looking at the Berlin show and the ticket page. Is the stage somehow in the "middle" of the arena. It seems seats are located around the stage. Is this true or is it just me :)

Hi Wendy - I am glad I could help. Unfortunately I won't be in Berlin this time but I will organize something for Cologne.

Tuelo - the stage is in center front of everything and each and everyone.

While there are seats located behind the stage, they are not on sale (in the seating chart they are marked red). Those seats are used for sports events only.

[quote="Caren"]I can't believe my luck. 3rd row center. Yay :)

Oh, lucky you :)
Well I've just grabbed my tickets now, after I'd persuaded my husband to go with me (and drive from Prague ;-) ), and though they're not so "golden" as yours, they're pretty good, too - 18th row right. Hooray!!! Another dose of eternity awaits!

Thanks, Henning! VERY helpful information indeed; I have just booked our room at the "Ars Vivendi"... So looking forward to July, to the concert and, of course, to meeting you all again - or for the first time, depends! Oh, I am happy... :mrgreen:

Berlin: part of concert hall turned into restaurant

Postby Amrei » Thu Mar 26, 2009 11:35 am

:( One side of the o2 arenea in Berlin has been reserved for VIPs (bl 101, 102, 103) to be a restaurant with buffet, where people can get their food and drinks are being served. Tickets 188 € each.
This also includes a special entrance and better seats with more space.
Anyhow - I fear, that this will cause a lot of noise during the concert. Has anybody experienced something like this before?
