Default Queen Concert Venue

Has anyone noticed that next weekend's Queen concert is being held on a converted construction site next to Ace Hardware rather than the usual Festival City event venue. It looks horrible right now. No seating organised and I dread to think what the catering and toilet facilities will be like. For a minimum AED400 per ticket, it seems like yet another potential Dubai rip-off, also clashing with the Fergie concert on the same night. What a shame.

Really looking forward to the concert, am of the age were i used to follow Paul Rodgers with Free at Sunderland Top Rank, Newcastle City Hall, Redcar Cotham Bowl, its a shame its on the same night as Fergie though would have liked to have seen her, one good thing as well the weather is guaranteed>

Are you sure it's the same venue? It's just that the guy on the radio specifically mentioned that the concert was being staged next to Ace Hardware, so I had assumed that the Paul Weller gig had been staged elsewhere, presumably at their normal events venue. Anyway, you know best.
