How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I think the performance was great but the sound quality in the sides of the first tier was not. It was just not loud enough to feel the singer's great voice. I had trouble hearing what the singer was saying and singing and the energy did not seem to come through since the sound was not loud enough since speakers point to the middle sections but not to the sides. No wonder why there were so many empty seats in 2nd tier...sound must have been even worse. Seems like there were empty seats in the middle of the first tier. Also, there were empty seats in loge but they went to waste since they were not offered to Goldstar. I wish that better seats were offered and available through Goldstar, especially since I pay for a Red Velvet membership. I know that amplified music is an issue in this venue but have been in amplified music concerts there where the sound has been better. The sound seems to be focused on orchestra seats and not elsewhere in the venue.
