Outrageously loud bass overwhelmed all other sounds. Could barely hear the melodies, definitely NEVER heard those gorgeous voices or harmonies that make Pentatonix great. Poorest fidelity ever heard in the amplification (way too loud too, but that’s a separate issue). You guys have reinvented pop music — so why borrow it’s worst features for your concert? Incredible DISAPPOINTMENT!! I finally left early — couldn’t bear it — after looking forward to it for months.

1.0 star rating Kristin Watkins from Greensboro, North Carolina


Terrible acoustics at Greensboro Coluseum. We were looking forward to seeing Pentatonix. So sad their powerful acopella was lost behind the shrill overall loudness. No excuses Greensboro Coluseum.

1.0 star rating Shirley Zielinski from Orlando, Florida


Extremely disappointed. This is not what we expected to see. We expected Pentatonix, the Acapella Group. The first two acts were fine. Rachel Platten could have been the show by herself. But it was far too long. We waited too long for Pentatonix to come on and then it was to a shocking space like, hip-hop music which was so incredibly loud you could not hear a word they were saying. We bought very expensive tickets months ago so excited to see what we thought would be the Pentatonix that we have been listening to so long. If we had wanted to go to a rock concert where our seats were actually vibrating beneath us from the intense loudness of the sound,, we would have saved all that money and gone somewhere else or donated it to a charity. What a complete waste and disappointment! The people behind us left early, as did the group in front of us and the ones to the side of us. We looked at the aisle and there was a stream of people leaving. We never leave a venue of any kind early, concert, play, game, but this one was the one we did. The first time they left the stage, we left. Unfortunately I bought a $40 T-shirt before the concert. It means nothing to me now. I won’t wear it. What a waste of their beautiful talent and voices. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT and major waste of our time and money.

Really looking forward to Pentatonix show in Montreal, however very disappointed at the sound quality. Very loud volume, to a point that some of the voices were dampened by it. What a shame! 5 stars to Rachel Platten, she continues to amaze with her energy, and vibe! Wonderful voice, amazing lyrics! Rachel, you can hold a show of your own, WAY TO GO!! You were the highlight of the evening!

1.0 star rating Ken from Mohegan Sun


You would think that all these negative reviews would wake this group up. They have amazing voices but they need to be heard to hear them! We left after 30 minutes with our ears ringing. We’ve been to other concerts at Mohegan Sun and never experienced sound this bad. We were told by Mohegan Sun employees that this was at the discretion of the group. Rachel Platten who proceeded the group was great and not nearly at the same volume. When I see this same complaint on this site, regardless of venue, you know this is the group calling the shots. Good grief guys, get the message. You’re phenomenal, but nobody going to your concert would know that with ear-splitting 120db sound levels and insane bass. Just sing and let your voices do the work!!

1.0 star rating Jennifer from Vancouver, British Columbia


Shockingly disappointing. It shouldn’t be all about the bass - and that’s what we got. Only Chance to enjoy their talent and harmonies was when they unplugged and sang without mics.

1.0 star rating Ejg from Jacksonville, Florida


So many people from so many different venues have sad the same thing. "If you like Pentatonix for their amazing vocals, you will never hear them at this concert. You would think you went to the wrong concert. It was overwhelmingly loud, bass was ear shattering ... Could not hear any harmonizing much less any words..." (our seats were second row orchestra). Sound system at the Daily Place was awful, lighting seemed poorly planned, almost an hour wait between the opening act and PTX. The group seemed like fantastic performers but considering the consistency in all of the bad reviews in many different venues you'd think they'd make some changes. The one positive - the staff at DP seemed outstanding. From the time we were greeted at the lot until we left everyone was very polite and appeared to really know what they were doing.
