Saw MM in rogers AR, the sound wad terrible, couldn't make out any words, even when he was talking between songs. Drums were so heavy it drowned out everything else, couldn't even make out what song they were playing most of the time. They had technical difficulties and had to start over on a couple of songs. A waste of money to see a band I really like.

I've been a fan of Modest Mouse and their indie rock music for almost 10 years. Anticipating their smart lyrics and energetic songs, I'd give 5 stars for anticipation - I was excited for this concert in Milwaukee. When the opening band Mass Gothic started playing bass-heavy brooding punk, it became clear this was not the concert I was expecting. From the first Modest Mouse song to the last, the sound quality and balance was terrible. Twice they chose to address their sold-out audience between songs, and no one could understand him. Chants of "turn up the microphone" sounded through the crowd. The MM fans who came to bang their head to harder alternative rock were satisfied. Us fans of the moderate indie rock songs like "The World at Large", "Missed the Boat" and "Float On" that helped earn their widespread success were not awknowledged. Every song had a harder edge which made the entire setlist sound similar. The nearly 2.5 hour concert drug on. We loved Milwaukee, but not the show

1.0 star rating Disappointed from Seattle, Washington


Been going to concerts for 28 years and this was definitely the worst show I've ever seen -- terrible sound, terrible engagement by the band. A real shame -- I've seen Modest Mouse before and they were great. This venue also has potential to be awesome. Not a great way to get back to live music after all we've been through the last 18 months.

Saw modest mouse at red rocks last night There is nothing this venue or any sound crew could do or not do, to make this venue less than EXQUISITE I’ve never been more disappointed in a band Not only was their stage presence, song selection and engagement absolutely HORRIFIC But the first time the lead singer decided to say something it was to suggest people in the cheaper sections pay more for beer Modest mouse is the definition of ungrateful assholes and as a music lover I deeply regret giving them a cent I’ve deleted their music from my playlists and encourage all to think twice before supporting this band After what we’ve all been through-come in with a spirit of gratitude, openness, fun and love You suck modest mouse

1.0 star rating Carl from Denver, Colorado


I genuinely feel refunds should be issued for this show. They started late, the sound was blaring out totally unbalanced and somehow traveled in a circular pattern like a siren throughout the ENTIRE evening. It was impossibly bad and I am gutted to have spent so much on four tickets.
