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.

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!!

BLONDIE ROCKED , ELVIS NEEDS TO RETIRE
We loved the Blondie set! Fun, high energy , great sound . Young guitarist great addition to the band . Elvis was awful from the first note. Terrible cacophonous sound , off the beat and out of tune . He’s milking his old fame but he has lost his voice.

Blondie's set went on too long and I didn't understand her choice of songs. Elvis's set was great but the sound was so bad that it became intolerable. I can't believe it was mixed and EQed so bad.

NOT LIKE HE USED TO SOUND
Sad but true. Elvis is through. Couldn’t hit a note. Took a vote. Left early couldn’t stand another song

WTF COSTELLO ?
After an entertaining set by Blondie ( the band was great, Debbie mostly quire good) . Elvis hit the stage with Pump it Up and was so off key I was questioning my buzz. I think other reviewers are kind to blame the mix. I'm a big fan and first saw the attractions in the 70s. He's a great songwriter and knowing his material made it even harder to listen. We were among the early departures Unpleasant listening
