This past weekend, The Killers played a show at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium in the U.K., but fans were forced to use toilets outside of the venue which led to huge lines. Concertgoers missed portions of the show and are now demanding refunds.
According to WalesOnline, those who purchased seats inside the venue were able to use toilets inside of the concourse, but fans who had general admission/standing tickets had to wait in lines outside. During the show, the crowd took to Twitter, saying that the venue should be held accountable.
“Who decided to get porter cabins as toilets for 20,000 people?” one fan questioned. “30-40 minutes to get out, queue and get back in. Absolute shambles organisation @LibertyStadium…@thekillers come to the proper part of Wales next time.”
Sam Jones, a fan who traveled from Cardiff to see the concert, told WalesOnline that although she had been to the stadium before for other shows, this was the “most ridiculous I’ve seen it.” She said that everyone was being herded out of two small exits and people were getting angrier as the time went on.
“I was furious,” Sam said. “I missed the first three songs because I was queuing for an hour to use the loo. A lot of the women in the queue were furious, saying they had basically spent £65 for a wee!”
Others stated that they had to relieve themselves in a bush outside in order to get back in time, leaving fans requesting refunds and even boycotting the venue for future shows.
The venue has not made any comments about the situation, nor explained if this will be fixed for future shows at the stadium.
