Vertigo by O2 not U2

August 1, 2008

On Wednesday night due to the generosity of my friends I got the chance to take in the O2 Experience. What I wasn’t expecting was sheer terror.

The seats looked fine on the layout of the venue, we were in Block H Row U that should have been some indication of our location in the venue. The good news was we could see everything once we took our seats the bad news, well. It took 15 minutes for the fear of falling and vertigo to subside and the sudden urge to ask for a safety belt. Kylie who I knew was petite was about an inch high on stage I measured her from our vantage point using my thumb and forefinger and on the tiny video screens as she is so slender looked like a mini pepperami dressed in gold lame. I told this to some clients who were in the Cavendish the next day and they said that this image would stay in their memory for quite some time being that Kylie Minogue and a small convenient meaty snack had never been put in the same sentence before.

Did I enjoy it, well no did I want to yes! The reviews have been universally 4 star, however that may have been for someone who could actually experience the show properly, there were times when it was good but on the whole I was not really impressed. Though in fairness to Ms. Minogue she can really sing live and shames a good many other artists who rely on pre-recorded tapes.

So what does all of this have to do with Cavendish Conference Venues? We guarantee you will not suffer vertigo no matter where you are seated in any of our venues and we will ensure that you can always see and hear what’s being presented.
