Looking at those sightlines of the stage put me in mind of the possibility of staging large muscial events (like the Proms) with double the audience size of the Albert Hall.

Of course, it would need a pipe organ! (No, I know that's not going to happen - wishful thinking.)

Does a Prom need an organ per-se?
Nothing wrong with a "Leeds" Proms idea

Perhaps not, but much better with. It's just that organs are an interest of mine. I reckon a sufficiently large one for the arena would cost a paltry additional couple of million only!

Organs are beautiful things, but expensive and are always drowned out by orchestras. There's no way the arena would invest in one, let alone have need for one.

I beg to differ. It depends on the instrument, of course, but there are recorded instances where the Albert Hall organ, for example, has easily shouted down a large symphony orchestra. Obviously, a (polite) organist would temper the output to blend with the orchestra.

There is a story - not anecdotal, I believe - of an American organist (Carlo Curley) arriving at the Albert Hall to begin a pre-recital practice. A rock group (I can't remember which) were just finishing up their practice - rather loudly, of course. Carlo quietly went up to the organ, pulled out all the most powerful stops and gave a blast. The rock musicians instantly stopped in their tracks and deferred to a superior noise-producer, all in good humour I might add!

The "last night of the proms" will never leave the Royal Albert Hall. The private boxes change hands for over £1m. Those owners wouldn't look kindly on their premier event being held elsewhere!!!

The Leeds Town Hall would be well paced to host a mini-proms, as it is in a beautifull classy and historic setting and has the required magnificent classical organ, it can host over 1000 people.

Definitely will be a fantastic addition, i actually saw a sample of the cladding around a year ago and the quality looked good and it had a lot of detail and depth, almost 3D looking to be honest.


And great updates Ps60!

It's starting to make an impact on the skyline. Should look great when it's finished with a decent lighting scheme
