I want my $200 back!
So we saw Elvis Costello & the Police at the $print Center on Tuesday night... and it kinda blew ass. It was our first time at the $print Center and we were completely underwhelmed. Why, oh Why, when they are building these new arenas do they not consider that bands will be playing these places and do something with the acoustics? The sound was so bad for Elvis that at times I was wondering just what the hell he was playing! It was better for the Police but not fabulous... the sound guy should be dragged out in the street and shot, that's for sure. The Police seemed to be just going through the motions, played all the hits but they did do some great versions and some of Andy Summers solos were amazing. I wish I could say something about the Elvis set, but other than Sting coming out and singing with him on Allison, I couldn't hear shit so nothing to say, which sucks 'cause I LOVE that man! We forked out $100 a seat and our seats were pretty crappy, I can't imagine how bad the nosebleed seats are! I give the evening a B.... hanging out with good friends always makes things better and even if the sound wasn't up to par, live music is great! I probably won't go see another show at the $print Center anytime soon though.. unless the tickets are free!
