Dave Matthews at O2 Academy Brixton

Jan and I went to see Dave Matthews at the O2 Academy in Brixton last night. He mainly played from his new album. He and his band were excellent but the sound at the O2 was ridiculously appalling and the heat in the venue was unbearably stifling - we had to leave early to stop expiring.
Also Dave Matthews band fans were, in my opinion, disrespectfully talking (more like shouting above the music) during the ENTIRE performance.
The journey was also a nightmare. There was an accident on the M4 at Junction 11 on the roundabout and the tailbacks meant a delay to the journey of at least 90 minutes. On the return journey the M4 elevated section was closed which meant a horrible detour via Slough.
All in all, not a good day. I am now fully resolved NEVER to go back to the O2 in Brixton unless air con is installed (sorry O2).
