\u201cwe are now aiming to start the second Louis Tomlinson show half an hour earlier at 8:30 to allow more time for people to get home with the train strikes. \n\nearlier show remains doors v soon, show time of 6:00\u201d
However, the venue shared a subsequent tweet about who gets to go into the show first, noting that they know it will “upset” some people.
According to the post, each fan was given a coloured wristband.
The red wristband was given to people who were getting in the queue “very early,” and the silver band was given to people who arrived before 8pm.
There was also a third wristband that is blue, which was given to people who got in line at 8:30pm, as requested.
But despite people with red wristbands camping out early, the venue decided that they would make the blue wristbands come in first, “then silver, then red.”
\u201cWRISTBANDS \n\nRed: people camping / queuing very early \nSilver: others who turned up before 8:00\nBlue: others in queue at 8:30 \n\nwe are letting in blue wristbands first, then silver, then red.\n\naware this will upset some but there has to be repercussions for queuing too early\u201d
Although some people online didn’t understand why those who arrived at the venue earliest would be let in last, others praised the venue, noting that other establishments need to move the same way.
One person on Twitter wrote: “Damn!!! respect for this more venues should have the balls to do this.”
“Queuing overnight, way too early, etc., is so strange to me and causes issues where there shouldn’t be issues. Follow the rules. The fan systems piss me off even more. Glad to see a venue stand up to this culture,” another added.
A third wrote: “Yes, finally, people [are] being held accountable for their ridiculous behaviour!”
