Hello folks, may someone from Spain help me? I think I'm gonna come to Benidorm to attend Brian and Roger but I have to find out how to travel from Italy.
I noticed that nearest airport is Alicante but I should fly to London and then to Alicante, which is a bit annoying. I'd rather go to Barcelona by train, but then how can I reach Benidorm? Do anyone know if I can get some train from Barcelona to Benidorm (and timetable / costs?).
And finally, any cheap hotel near the stadium where the concert will take place?
I know it's a lot of questions, thanks in advance for those who are gonna help me (and some other italian fans who are gonna attend the concert too).
I'm from Barcelona. The idea of getting here by train is great, instead of going to London and then Alicante. I don't know about the travel from Italy to Barcelona, hope you'll know, but I can tell you that there's a train line who sure gets from Barcelona to Benidorm.
On the website where is announced that about the 46664 I think there're hotel guides, which would help you more than me.
If you tell me the exact day you're going to get to Barcelona I can tell you the timetable an prices (arround 20€ for sure at least).
Thank you very much Josuè, your help is really appreciated! I think that we'll be in Barcelona on 19th August, anyway I'm gonna tell you more precisely in some days.
just another question: is Barcelona-Girona airport near to the train station? We are also considering to reach Barcelona by plane and then take a train to Benidorm: just if we can get easily from Barcelona-Girona to train station.
Will you attend the concert too? Maybe we can meet there! I know some other qzers will be there too...
Okay then, when you know the precise days then we're going to talk.
I'm afraid I won't go to the concert.
Well, Barcelona and Girona are two different cities. Arround 60 far one of each other.
Barcelona is linked to the bus station and train station as it's the capital's airport. You can easyly take the train there.
So, the idea of getting to Barcelona by plane is perfect. I would take then the plance from Barcelona to Alicante, and there in Alicante take the train to Benidorm (fastest way to get there). But getting to Benidorm from Barcelona by train it's okay as well, but with a lot of hours.
Just to let you know that you maybe will have to take two trains to get to Benidorm (Barcelona-Alicante, Alicante-Benidorm) but I'll check it properly by phone.
The distance between Barcelona and Benidorm is two times the distance between Madrid and Benidorm.
I've got to go now, but anything you want to ask me do it.
Richard, I'll be going too, so we will definitely meet again if you want! I am excited already. You will just love meeting Luca (Hangman) and Martin (Mr. Scully). We plan to go by car and rent a cottage somewhere near Benidorm, so we can sure pick up people on Alicante airport. If anyone can help me find tickets on the net I'll be grateful.
Wow, Queenzone meeting is about to be set!! :)) Today I'm gonna look for some nice hotels in Benidorm and then I check tickets availability: I think they should be advised on 46664 site so I will keep an eye there.
I will post some more details as soon as I have; thank you for the infos so far, Josuè, your help is very much appreciated! I will maybe check the planes from Barcelona to Alicante, that should be faster than going by train...
I wouldn't be so excited... at least not until Brian and Roger 100% confirm their appearance. And IF they do, hopefully the setlist will be more like Invincible Hope / The Call instead of WWRY/WATC with the musical cast.
Hey hey, I think I'll go. I have to meet you people!!!! And of course, if Brian and Roger goes there, it'll be a sin not to go being so near!!!
If we have a meeting, we could gather on the same hotel, couldn't we?
If I go I'd perhaps carry with me a friend.
Wow it has to be great.
Hey guys, it seems like we're gonna have a real great Queenzone meeting! That's great!
I've just found where tickets are on sale, on the net; the site is in spainish and i couldn't find a way to register, so far. maybe some spainish friends may help us all? The site is link
then click on the right on "Servicam venta de entradas". The english version of the site is not covering that section. I hope some guys from Spain can help. Thank you in advance, cheeeers!!!
ps: 60 euro?? quite expensive, anyway...
