Glasgow Stage built sideways?

Anyone have thoughts as to why the stage was built along the long side of the stadium?

Do you think it had to do with ticket sales?

Clearances of the roof?

What could it be????

(I actually like it better this way...)

There's a huge new main stand directly opposite where the stage was. The stands behind the goals are not that large. I think that might have been the reason.

I'm think it was to give the people (and corporate hospitality) in the newly built main stand the best view. This stand is also the highest.

.........but hey, I could be wrong too???

PS I was there and it was a fantastic concert. No sound problems where I was standing and the band were on top form.

You can view my photos here....

What's the guestimated attendance difference between a halfline stage as apposed to the endzone setup?

gotta be upwards of 10k

this setup actually reminded me of Elevation at Notre Dame where the tip of the heart was at the back of the arena - it was very unique and interesting - bono could basically reach out and touch the lighting and sound booth...

The halfline setup could also be a way to give euro fans something slightly different - from a fans point of view.

Seeing as the UK easily sold all tickets within a day - I doubt it's a matter of putting asses in seats.

Thanks!

That is odd though! If you were too far to the side you wouldn't see half of that screen.
