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.

“Ed 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,” Kandace Jenkins wrote on PerthNow’s Facebook page. “I still enjoyed myself thoroughly. Stadium just needs to sort those things out if they want to continue using it for musical concerts. It’d be great for the footy.”

“Yes, I agree the screen at the top back was not working. I feel he should of been in the middle,” Vicki Rawlings responded.

Sara Brown wrote: “Yes I agree – no big screens just the front stage… also the sound echoed poorly when he spoke. Couldn’t really understand what he was saying.”

“Dreadful. 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!,” wrote Rita Gatenby.

“I agree; Ed great sound quality very poor. Won’t be going to any more concerts there unless it’s sorted,” wrote Shona Ballantyne.
