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.

HORRIBLE SOUND

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.

BLONDIE WAS GREAT, ELVIS SOUNDED DISTORTED AND KEYBOARDS OVERWHLEMED EVERYTHING ELSE

My wife is a great fan of Elvis and she was looking forward to hearing him. Our seats in the 102 section well-positioned. The volume was too high and distorted you could not hear the vocals. We left early after we had enough, and apparently we were not alone because many others were walking out, we spoke with one of the security team who confirmed a lot of the others who left early said the same about the sound. Very disappointed.

BLONDE GETS THE STARS, ELVIS IS EMBARRASSING

I never was into the guy who names himself Elvis in 80s. I thought he was a Buddy Holly want a be. Blonde was fun and showed up with a great band, especially guitarist who channelled Eddie Van Halen. Elvis straight up sucks, can’t sing, can’t play, legend in his own mind, name drops, looks like he just hired his band in the parking lot for minimum wage, giant AHole, horrific sound system, how he has the balls to get on stage is beyond me, sooooooo overrated, we walked out.

WHAT A RIP OFF

Horrible sound. We left while Blondie went on too long. From what I see we didn’t miss anything by not seeing Elvis Costello. Pechanga should be ashamed of themselves for calling a confederate center a theater. Won’t be back no matter who plays there.

BAD SOUND MIX RUINS THE EC SHOW!

Agree with the other reviewers. We set right next to the mixing board and the heavy bass frequencies and distortion ruined what should have been a Hall of Fame performance. Accidents will happen but this one was the fault of the sound engineer who evidently didn't notice that her truly horrendous sound mix literally drove people out of the arena. The sound for Blondie was fine. But for EC and the Imposters they plugged in a new mixing board and brought in a new sound engineer. She was oblivious to the disastrous affect her butchering of the mix had on the show. We were five feet away from her and were tempted to pass her a note begging her to "turn down the bass!" The low end sub-woofer tones for the bass drum, floor toms and bass guitar were mind numbing. Fine for a hip hop show but not for the subtleties of a master song writer and his four piece band.

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
