THE SOUND AT THIS VENUE IS ATROCIOUS

Blondie was great. Good show. Was pleasantly surprised. Sound mix was acceptable. Elvis played every song I wished he would play. Now if I could have heard him ? it would have made it much more pleasurable. From what I did hear ? The man clearly couldn't hear himself either as he was off pitch for 80% of the show. The bass and drums overpowered everything. His guitar was a joke in the mix. The same thing happened to me when I saw Styx there last year so it is clearly a venue issue. Will not return to the venue, which is too bad as it is a great setting and location to see a show. This venue will begin to suffer atrophy if they keep this up. No one is going to want to pay that kind of money for a less than professional sound mix or show.

MIXED RESULTS

I thought Blondie did well, but went way to long and she had the same issue Elvis did, an awful mix. I was 20 rows back stage right, so I thought maybe it was where I was seated, but it sounds like many people felt the same way. I also thought Elvis was rushing thru the tunes and did way too many tunes I did not know.

DISAPPOINTED

Been an EC fan for years. With his different signature voice, I think he's a great singer. What the heck happened last night? Throughout, he was a semi tone flat....consistently. Could have there been a strange abnormal pitch shift in his earbud monitors? An electronic digital Doppler feed to his ears? No way could it be tired singing. After all, he is a professional. As a singer myself, it hurt to hear Elvis off key . We even walked around the venue to se if it was the acoustics in the tent. The band was on fire and the two backup singers were spot on. This remains a mystery.

ELVIS IS BEING DONE A MAJOR MISSERVICE BY HIS SOUND CREW

Saw him in Gettysburg a week before this tour. All of the same problems as others are posting here. Sound WAY too loud, he was completely unintelligible. Completely disappointed. Sure hope he sees these reviews.

I WISH I WAS IN THE TOWER THEATRE

Blondie plays too long, closes w a blast of From Russia w Love , needs a more compact set. Elvis, is it the venue or the mix? Terrible, painful at times. Mud and volume, ugh. Come back to the Tower, little Sheba.

ELVIS’S VOICE WAS FLAT OFF KEY AND EVEN WITH THE LOUD SOUND IT WAS THE WORST

I have seen Elvis over 50 times and his vocals at Bethel were atrocious Perhaps he asked the sound board to cover his problem with ear splitting volume When he augmented with the back up singers you could see them working hard to auto tune the melodies Was he sick ? Is his voice shot? The band was terrific Steve Nieve is a magician and Pete Thomas one of the last of the living rock drummer giants If his voice was off he should have cancelled or at least admitted it was not up to par Debbie Harry at 74 was surprisingly agile and was a good opener with Clem Burke providing outstanding drum support The venue is nice and the museum was a lot if fun But I won’t be going there again

ELVIS IS MY #1 AND I ALMOST HAD TO LEAVE

WHOEVER IS MIXING FOR ELVIS NEEDS TO BE FIRED. IT WAS THE SAME ISSUE AT HARD ROCK IN ATLANTIC CITY LAST SUMMER. WE WERE IN 2 ND ROW FOR 2018 AND 9TH ROW AT BB&T AND THE SOUND IS AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. ELVIS... PLEASE SIT AT THE BOARD AND LISTEN! NOT FAIR TO YOUR FANS! WE WANT TO HEAR YOU, NOT JUST THE BASS AND NOISE!!
