Sometimes I wonder what goes on in the minds of people setting up seats at a concert. As I type this I'm at the City Winery in Nashville, waiting for the Nick Lowe concert to start. The people sitting around me just arrived, and suddenly it's a sardine can impersonation. I guess they want to fit as many people as possible in here, but DANG. Can't we have a little room to move our elbows when we applaud without running the risk of breaking the nose of the person next to us??

I suppose they have to fit all the seats into a limited space. My local concert venue only supplies seats to 80% of the ticket holders.

It all boils down to the money... The more seating available the more money they can earn from the tickets sold... Might as well forgo seating and have standing room only.

I find old historic theatres seem to have been made for short people with very narrow butts.
