We visited Leeds First Arena as the cherry on the top of a special day . . . expensive lunch, hotel stay, and fabulous Prince!
Couldn't be more disgusted, depressed and disheartened at the sound quality. So much for a new arena with amazing acoustics.
We were sat in block 214, row H, seats 10-11. . . Premium seats that cost £125 EACH!
Our evening was ruined. I complained twice during the gig and we both filed complaints after enduring what can only be described as an old amp turned up too loud. We couldn't even decipher what Prince was saying when he spoke to the audience, let alone when the band kicked in. And, let's face it, it really is about the music with an artist of this caliber.
To place this before a paying audience was nothing less than an insult.
I saw Prince at the O2 seven years ago and he was amazing, in a far bigger venue, with no sound issues at all, so you can imagine how excited we had been and the disappointment that ensued.
We will be booking at Manchester Arena in the future.
We are currently in discussion with First Arena regarding refunding our ticket price.
