    First to Review

    I went to see Depeche Mode here (if you have any particular aversion to them don't let it taint your opinion of this review!).

    It was built in 1990, as part of the set of stadia commissioned for the 1992 olympics, but it makes a pretty good music venue despite that. The acoustics are good and it's pretty spacious. We had standing tickets and there wasn't a point that you felt too crowded, on the contrary, but if you did feel slightly enclosed you could make your way to the back of the stadium for a breather.

    Without wanting to position this review too far south of good taste, I have to tell you that the toilets are in plentiful supply and at multiple locations, all easily accessed from wherever you may be in the stadium. This is all the more welcome when you have been downing San Miguel or Estrella Dam for the duration of the event. I drank a LOT, as rather than having to exit the main hall to get a beer there were employees wandering around with huge kegs of the stuff strapped to their back, with holster-esque dispensers of plastic glasses (not, alas, imperial pints!). Efficient, cheap and on-demand - they were heaven to the concert-goers, and they nudge this review up to 5 stars!

    The rest of the stadium is pretty good too - the approach is really spacious and looks cool all lit up at night (especially the tall posts lining the edges). There are lots of places to sit and view much of the surrounding Olympic complex, and it seems a far cry from most English venues.

    If you're in Barça and there's someone playing that you wouldn't mind seeing then it's undoubtedly worth a visit, if only to say you've done something different from the norm.

    Saw Lenny Kravitz here last night. Pretty nice venue, large enough but intimate. Good security, adequate toilets but very very warm. No aircon or fans of any kind.
    Decent acoustics as well.

    An excellent venue for Football games but we went to see Coldplay play and they were amazing. A very large stadium it is located in a beauitful spot of Barcelona it is quite a journey towards the out skirts of the city but it is worth the trek. At our concert Chris Martin was able to go into the seated area of the crowd.
