So the official opening of the Edinburgh International Festival, one of the world's great festivals, and the prestige that entails, is tinpot? Ok then. 

Also, without the revenue that that and other non-footballing events brings into the club, we may not have been signing anyone this week.

I suppose in your world the grass is always greener........or perhaps not.

I wonder how murrayfield seems to cope with much larger concerts and allegedly the same surface ?

Think we did it to soon. The grass is only a year old and we should have left the grass longer in length before doing it.

Maybe quite similarly. After all, there are far fewer matches played there than at Tynecastle--it just may never have created a conflict so close to a game.

Why is that?? Has half the pitch suddenly transformed itself back to a lovely grass covered surface from a cut up dirt pitch in a matter of a few days?? 🤔

For a start it wasn't cut up and secondly it looks like it's going to be back to perfection for the  next home game . 

So for ONE game the pitch looked bad but played ok . All that hyperbole from some clowns , Hearts fans of otherwise made for hilarious reading tbh .

Folk are frustrated with the way things are going. Yes the outrage may have been over the top. 

 

But the pitch shouldn’t have looked like that for the first game of the season. 

 

Anyway we are where we are.

Nothing funny about it! Were you at the Ross Co game or see it on TV??? The pitch was a disgrace END OF!

As for going back to perfection - let’s wait and see!

Did the pitch affect the game or the football played on it (or what little there was) ?

The answer is no.

So in order to earn the wages of one of our new players for a year we had to play one game with the grass looking not very nice.

A disgrace ??

It looked a wee bit discoloured in patches.

Our old pitch was a disgrace, Fir Park's old pitch was a disgrace, ER's is a disgrace.

The surface was fine just it's appearance didn't look great. It will be back at it's best for the next home game and the club are £100k + better off.

Did Ann Budge not say Tynecastle was offered to the festival organisers FOC as long as they picked up the catering and security costs etc. 

 

I would imagine we would have charged for electricity usage & sold drinks etc. So Hearts would have made a small amount of money at least.

Whilst undoubtedly the pitch looked crap it played ok. I would imagine the plan was always to try this kind of event at Tynie and lessons will be learned. I doubt we envisaged holding a 150 piece orchestra (I think) so soon but if you look at the pictures its where the stage was and not where the seating was that's the problem. Im sure if any further events are held they will have a better understanding of what needs to be done to stop this happening, for instance I would imagine a boxing ring or smaller stage for bands could be erected far quicker so presumably not cause damage. Anyway we were crap on Saturday and absolutely nothing to do with the pitch.

I also think it was seen as a 'loss leader' to show off Tynecastle can hold large events in the future.

You really need to calm down. You weren't ranting like this when the pitch under Cathro looked like a mud bog--far, far worse.

 

Seriously, go have a piña colada or something.

Is that from Saturday though? I can’t imagine we’d have stewards every twenty  yards at last nights game.

Go and find someone else to argue with.

Not looking for an argument , this fact ha s been posted many times already on this thread usually by anti Hearts bams. If you don't align yourself with them , fine.

Next home game is 31st, I bet when we look at the pitch we won't be able to tell that it was used for the concert.

Good question. I think the big concerts are built up and taken down within 48 hours as the tour moves to the next venue.

 

Does anyone know how long the staging at Tynecastle stayed up for in total.

I've done the tour at Murrayfield and they do a small part on the hybrid pitch, they explained they actually kill off the grass each summer and grow new grass for the next season.

Stage Crewe were still in Gorgie on Sunday.

Can't confirm how much of stage still had to come down, but they were still working as it was hard hard and boots all round.

I guess the panels protecting the pitch were the last things to be removed. 

 

For next time the contract should state that the pitch should be cleared within 12 to 16 hours of event finishing. This would mean the riggers are  working night shift to clear the pitch.

Hard hard and boots is one of the kinkiest films you'll ever see.
