> What was Joe's issue with the venue?

There were lots of complaints from his fans - ive copied a couple of posts from another forum below. These were typical of the complaints given at the time. (spelling/grammar mistakes arent mine - just copied them as is lol). Stressing the views arent mine as i've never been but there were too many at the time on multiple sites for my liking..

He issued a statement shortly after (which I cant find at this moment) saying words to effect of that he valued his fans input and cares about his fans etc etc and for that reason he will never play there again.

Chances are the venue has learnt from the problems and there wont be any this time but it just puts a doubt in my mind..

"I went to see Joe bonnomassa last night. Even though he played wonderfully I didn't enjoy the gig. It was badly set out, took half an hour to get into the venue then we had to join another que to get into the audatorium! This que also took half an hour to get through. Not only that the corridoor was long and thin and the only had two tiny dors open for thousendsof people! The security were clueless! The venue was long and thin and moveing through the crowd was imposaable. We allmost didn't make it to the wheelchair platform. For the first time ever I didn't mind leaveing early as my dad over heard a security guard say they planned to "kettle" us on the platform while the main crowd left. Hopefully no other bands ar book on this so called "venue".

Same as you mate, Joe Bonamassa was amazing but the venue was terrible. As well as the problems you mention with access and egress, they stopped us at the roundabout and said the car park was full. We had to walk 3/4 mile in which we weren't happy with as our friend has a bad back. When we got there, there were plenty of parking spaces, as we got to the building, they started letting cars in again. The security guys were just a joke. Once we were inside, the auditorium was terrible. I'm 5'11" and couldn't see a thing as the stage was too low and there's no natural slope, so my wife who's 5'2" didn't stand a chance. Why the hell he didn't play Sheffield City Hall which is a far better venue is beyond me.

I would strongly advise anyone not to go to a gig at Rotherham Magna, it's just not fit to hold concerts as it simply isn't set up for them.
