Ed Sheeran concert at Optus Stadium: social media backlash over venue

Screenshot from 2018-03-03 10-14-20.pngDozens of concert-goers took to social media to vent their frustration over what they say was poor sound quality, long queues and lack of screens.

โ€œEd was great however sound system was shocking with echoes and also no big screens for people to see him who were way up at the back,โ€ Kandace Jenkins wrote on PerthNowโ€™s Facebook page. โ€œI still enjoyed myself thoroughly. Stadium just needs to sort those things out if they want to continue using it for musical concerts. Itโ€™d be great for the footy.โ€

โ€œYes, I agree the screen at the top back was not working. I feel he should of been in the middle,โ€ Vicki Rawlings responded.

Sara Brown wrote: โ€œYes I agree – no big screens just the front stage… also the sound echoed poorly when he spoke. Couldnโ€™t really understand what he was saying.โ€

โ€œDreadful. Sound with echoes all night. We could barely understand him when he talked and were sitting directly opposite stage. Such a shame as an awesome show. Thanks Ed!,โ€ wrote Rita Gatenby.

โ€œI agree; Ed great sound quality very poor. Wonโ€™t be going to any more concerts there unless itโ€™s sorted,โ€ wrote Shona Ballantyne.
