Forget the chaotic entrance organization
How did the pit line work? Did people without numbers get into the pit?

The pit line worked well apart from Bercy security not been able to count. Graham was explaining to the for ages how it worked but in the end he gave up and had to bring one of them out to explain that the first guy in line was No 1 , that I was No 7 and so on and walked him down the whole line. When we were let in they insisted on scanning tickets even though our tickets got checked when we got wristbands.
Security water issues inside. Not sure if your referring to Bruce or Bercy security but neither had access to us without going up on the stage. This was because the barrier was inline with the stage, there was no walkway for security like you would see at a stadium show

Checking the tickets - tickets were only visually checked when wristbands were given out, therefore it was necessary to scan them at the entry point to ensure they were genuine (I witnessed one person who had bought a fake being turned away - he was gutted - don't know the outcome of this one.
Water WAS allowed to be brought into the arena.
It must be scary to be in a toilet when the power goes off (disabled or not) but the power was restored fairly quickly. I'm guessing when you say "locked" it was a manual lock and she could have opened it if she could see what she was doing, not an electric lock where she would truly have been trapped - that would be very scary.

Anyway, tonight was a very different story, staff were very helpful and actually helped us get a better seat. They were helpful without being pushy which is perfect, because what most disabled people want is to feel that help is there if they need it but not to be fawned over. The last thing my wife wants is to be fussed over because she happens to have a severe disability but she does expect large venues to make reasonable provision for basic human needs - and this venue does not come close to that. I will be advising them of these and other shortcomings.

Glad things were better for you on night 2 and hope you had a great show (unfortunately I was on the Eurostar heading home by then so was happy to have night 1, complete with power cut, lack of air conditioning, and obnoxious Dutch/Danish? woman who insisted in barging everyone out of her way if they even touched her!)
