ATLANTA - Garth Brooks took the stage Thursday night for the first ever concert at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Channel 2 Action News viewers tweeted that there were issues with the audio during the country star’s performance.
Sound is terrible on level 3. We cannot understand a word!— Darlene Hayes (@marvwick) October 13, 2017
People at the concert said they heard a loud screeching and a bad echo. Viewers said some concert-goers decided to leave early. Some were asking for refunds.
Please fix the sound ! This is horrible! @wsbtv— Susie Hammond (@SlammHamm) October 13, 2017
A Mercedes-Benz Stadium spokesperson sent the following statement:
Garth Brooks played the first concert tonight at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and it was a spectacular show that tens of thousands enjoyed. We have heard some fan concerns about sound quality in certain sections of the upper concourse and sound engineers are looking into that now. We do know that a breaker was tripped that powered speakers in the parts of the upper level for a small amount of time and was resolved.
