View for Amsterdam Arena

Hi U2 meisters ...

Quick question for you all: If you go to www.Amsterdamarana.nl and do the following you can see the seating plan:
- Click on UK flag on top right hand corner to get the site in
English
- Click on Events (top left hand circle)
- Click on any one of the U2 links (Vertigo World Tour, Sold Out)
- Click on 'stand sections' on right hand side list
- Click on seating stage North

My question is, is that I reckon the podium, ie stage, is further forward than it shows. We are in block 407, and we are concerned that all we will get to see will be the speaker rack (side view) and only get to ses the band when they come out onto the 'B-stages'.

What do you think? Has anyone been to the Arena to tell me otherwise?

Thanks in advance guys,
TD.

I think you will be just fine. the 409 sectiona nd maybe 408 has a real shitty view. I think you have a great view to be honest

It depends what block number you are in as to the view.

Sounds like 270 is the actual seat number, so its a bit difficult to say, although I do know it is one continuous seating stream all the way round. For example, seat 1 may be in block 401 and the last seat, say 500 is all the way round in block 430.
I also know that the seat numbers go from right to left inside the block, so in block 405, say, seat 101 (for example) is closer to the stage than seat 100.

okay, seat numbers always go from left to right.
When you're in Block 117, 118, 408 or 409 you might have a limited view of the stage.

..it doesn't work that way.

You first determine in which block you are. Then your ticket states in which row you are en finally your seat number.

At Amstedam 1, I'll be in block 121, row 2, seat 191
At Amsterdam 3, I'll be in block 104, row 3, seat 99
