Their sound mixers failed. Music too loud and distorted. Could not hear and understand the singing. Was not worth the visit

1.0 star rating Kent from Kansas City, Missouri


I should have learned and taken heed of all the reviews I saw prior to the KC concert. Train nailed it !!!! Crisp, clean and fantastic interaction with the crowd ! Not piling on, but Hall & Oates need to hang it'd think with all the negative reviews, they'd "fix" whatever was wrong, but then again, they probably don't read the reviews (time to start boys....). As with others, the sound mix between the 2 bands was night and day. Couple that with H&O turning old 3-4 minute classics into 7-8 minute overtures and we left before the encore.......time to retire......

I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but Train gave a better show last night than Hall & Oates. Admittedly, H&O can still sing and play. They are legends! But the devil can be in the sound engineering. Hall brought along his stellar musicians and singers from “Daryl’s House of Blues” TV show. The Hall of Fame duo is still great, make no mistake about it, but unfortunately the sound engineering for their portion of the concert was nothing short of horrible. Digitized to the max, tinny sounds, volume distortion, and extreme echoes ruined the classic sound of H&O. It was so loud the music was completely distorted and the jumble of instruments tramped all over Hall’s sweet vocals.Understanding words and hearing instrument solos was near impossible. The songs dragged on too long too. You found yourself hoping that they would move on to another classic instead of just playing one song to death. Train, however, stole the show and was nothing short of fantastic. Patrick Monahan, lead singer for Train, sang is a— off while taking selfies with the crowd, signing Penguins shirts for fans, and tossing large beach balls into the crowd for fun. My husband, who has heard Train on the radio, was not a true fan until last night. He was amazed at how terrific and tight the band was live. I have seen H&O many times in the past. I was truly disappointed in how the sound engineering ruined what could have been a really great concert.

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! i have been a fan for 45 years and it was my first time going to a Hall & Oats concert. i left after 6 songs as i was sick of hearing their classic's just not sounding right. The sound mix was really bad, as TRAIN was very clear, so someone wasn't on their game. I came to hear their classics not a Jam Session! I realize their in their 70's, so i wasn't expecting the good old days. However, this was something that i could not sit through after listening to their music all my life. Extremely Disappointed!

I was so impressed with Train. The sound, voices and tightness were spot on. Then H&O entered the scene. What the heck happended? I know I am old but the sound quality didn't change in 30 minutes. They were out of sync, the percussions and guitars over powered their flat voices. What a shame. Time to retire. Highlight; Charles DeChant (sax), Mr Casual, was awesome.

Our 1st date was H&O at Kingswood/Wonderland (Toronto, Canada), July '83. Awesome! I surprised my wive (of 33 years) w/ tickets to last night's ACC (Toronto, Canada) concert. Only 1/2 full venue. Kinda tells you something.TERRIBLE! 3x feedback on mics! They can't sing anymore!!!! Sound sucked. OK, it's a hockey rink. Warm up band Train was much better entertainers. I'm tired of the gouging! Retire guys! No good for even the casino circuit. Stay home, & play their old LP's/CD's/DVD's. Daryl: get a (good) haircut!
