Move El­ton John to Em­bank­ment

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

In all the eu­pho­ria sur­round­ing the re­cently an­nounced El­ton John Concert in June 2017 at the ABAXS­ta­dium, has any­one, A BA X or the City Coun­cil, given any thought to the con­sid­er­able noise and in­con­ve­nience the hold­ing of this event will cause to the thou­sands of res­i­dents who live within the en­vi­rons of the sta­dium?

Why couldn’t this event be held on the Em­bank­ment?

This venue has been good enough for pre­vi­ous con­certs, e.g.Bry an Adams re­cently, and causes min­i­mal dis­tur­bance to res­i­den­tial neigh­bour­hoods.

I’mno­takill-joy, in fact, I’m an El­ton John fan.

If this event goes ahead, it is to be hoped that strict noise lim­its are laid down, to be mon­i­tored through­out the event, and a cut-off time of 11pm for close down is im­posed.

If fur­ther events of this type are planned for Pe­ter­bor­ough, then the need for a proper concert venue, ei­ther fully en­closed or, if open, sited well away from res­i­den­tial ar­eas, be­comes all the more ur­gent. Tony New­ton
