We are, though, broadly on the same page. :thumbup:
You're right there, I went to a couple of performances by one of my favourite guitarists, Bill Frisell, the sound wasn't just bad, it was inaudible. I felt so strongly about this I wrote to his management who really didn't seem to care. One was at Ronnie Scott's, the other at the Cadogan Hall, there were also others in the audience that were unhappy about it too, it wasnt just me. I complained to Ronnies also, but customer services there leave a lot to be desired.
I think the quallity of PA systems is the best ever, it has to be pilot error, and it is surprising how amateur and inexperienced some engineers seem to be on what are quite important and prestigious tours. It's like they aern't hearing or taking into account any audience feedback, they are right, end of story, after all, what does the audience know? Well, it's us who have to listen, and we've paid not insignificant amounts for our tickets!
