I love Barbican Hall. I have yet to find an unsatisfactory seat. It seems no matter where you are in the hall, the sight lines are good, the sound is good and seats are comfortable and well spaced out. It's a large space that somehow feels intimate. The rake is well judged; even a 6'8" gentleman's head couldn't block my view. Most people choose to see a show depending on the artist but some venues are so hideous or uncomfortable that you struggle to enjoy the show. That definitely won't happen here. 


The Barbican Hall is a wonderful space in which to showcase whatever music it happens to be. For me, it was Anton and Erin (of Strictly fame), with the musicians and vocalist on stage. The music was good. The dancing was good but the singer and dresses were marvellous! Anton has an easy patter and that made for pleasant listening when they broke away from the dancing for two or three minutes. I had been given the ticket as a present and found the evening entertaining. However, I'm quite glad I didn't pay to see the show.
