ABEL SOARED-PER USUAL!!!😍👊🏿

The Weeknd was lit as hell!!! Abel was electrified , played every hit that I was hoping for: Often, Wicked Games. The Hills, Acquainted., Earned it and of course the whole Starboy album. His voice is one of a kind sultry, crazy, SUPERB!!!

WEEKND AMAZING, ALLIGIANT BRUTAL BAG DROP

The Weeknd lit the place from the first song, sound was great where I was. Production well coordinated. Abel worked the stadium. Definitely would see him perform again. Alligiant stadium’s money grab and total chaos following the concert was disgusting, get organized half the concert goers were lined up for over an hour and a half.

THé WEEKND

Pretty good! Great voice! The sound was not the best. Light show was cool! Way to hot in there tonight, like 45 degrees! No encores , it ended pretty abruptly. Like that’s it, lights on , go home . I was surprised , maybe he was to hot?

GREAT PRODUCTION; SOUND QUALITY POOR

After keeping the sold-out crowd waiting way too long, the show was good not great. The production strong, although the post-apocalyptic city set didn’t seem to square with the 20 or so “dancers” who walked around in a stupor and the giant inflatable moon. But whatever, it was entertaining. The sound mix was incredibly poor and most of the time the lead vocal was completely obscured. Had Abel been able to hear his own show, I suspect we’d have a new sound crew for the rest of the tour. Quite a bit of grouching from fans on the way out about the set only being 90-100 minutes.

CAN YOU SAY "HYPE AND FAKE

Saw Weeknd w my sisters, didn't know what to expect, but the waste from the 1000's wrist bands that lighted up handed out to play with the music was neat to see but garbage after the show , it you stamp them with the concert show they become a collectors item for the fans, just a thought to try to keep them out of the ground where they won't break down for a very very long time leaching battery acid and mercury. Don't know what he was going for w the red head to toe covered dancers, using the hype from "HandMaidens Tale" I suppose, wouldn't be surprised, hype fake BS, karaoke and pre recorded music, just what you want at a "live" concert you pay premium money for tiny ass seats. Count me out of this "music venue" it has nothing I want.

MEH

Was like a giant dance party so that part was fun but agree about the sound-my ears hurt from too much bass. It was super hot inside, so had no idea there was no AC in that stadium. Also he didn’t come on until after 9 so a lot or boring waiting around with no entertainment and then he was done by 1040, like wth? And the ending was abrupt and disappointing because he literally just walked off stage so you expected an encore but nope. Not even a thanks and good bye. So that was a let down. And even tho it was sold out there were rows and rows of empty seats on the floor so I don’t get it. Was that fake ploy by Ticketmaster to up the hype for sales or did that many people eat $600-$1000 per ticket with fees thanks to Ticketmaster’s BS dynamic pricing aka roadside robbery tactics. So for the price we paid, we expected more, and as for Doja cat opener replacements, he could have done better,

MUDDLED SOUND - PRERECORDED MUSIC

Sure the light show was impressive and Able is a good entertainer. But the music itself was terrible. No live music, it was all prerecorded and Able sang over it. So it was basically Karaoke. Well, Karaoke with such a terrible sound mix that it was nearly impossible to hear Able’s voice which was the only thing that was live. In fact the muddled sound was so bad many times it was nearly impossible to even tell what song was being played. The music isn’t that complex and could have easily been played live. I’d think this would have given the sound guys a much better input to balance the sound mix to where it was listenable.

GIANT MOON OBSTRUCTED OUR VIEW

The music was great however, the huge moon obstructed our view which made me , my boyfriend and thousands of others unable to see the show. I had center seats first level and paid a premium to see the Weeknd perform not the F$&@%!# moon. I am so disgruntled that I called my credit card to dispute the payment. I read the reviews and daw the pictures on 303 and it is funny how in those pictures that were Supposedly taken of the Weeknds performance in Denver had no pictures of the gigantic inflatable moon. I was so excited to see his performance and was left very much disappointed!!

VISUALLY STIMULATING, SOUND WAS TRASH

Out of 100s of concerts I've attended, this one had the most amazing stage setup & light shows that's i e ever experienced. The sound on the other hand was like being forced against the bass canon at a rave. The entire show I was unable to make out a single word Able said let alone enjoy the music. I like bass like everyone else but this was absurd & sounded like one thick note carried on for 60 minutes. Concerts are my life but I'll be scratching The Weeknd & Lumen Field off my list of of repeat shows. Very bad

DEAD SILENT HOUR AND A HALF WAIT FOR MAIN EVENT

I have been to 25+ concerts and this was the worst experience to date. The whole concert seemed very unorganized and drawn out way to long. In between musicians there was silence (no background music) and the most entertaining part was the “wave” started by the 70K fans. Sound quality was poor. I can say one positive was the light show it was off the charts amazing. (Reason for the 2 stars). Overall for the amount of money spent on the concert it was not worth it!

2.0 star rating Weak End from Seattle, Washington.

HORRIBLE SOUND QUALITY

If you attended the concert for the music, you were terribly disappointed. The sound was overwhelmed by ear shattering bass.. It was impossible to make out a voice and melody. This also affected Snoh Aalegra, who I later found out actually had a nice voice. No amount of lasers and pyrotechnics compensated for that feeling that you just got robbed of what could have been an amazing experience.

UNORGANISED

took almost 5 hours to come out and preform. basically leading everyone on by turning the lights on and off. everywhere is unorganised and it’s huge here. opening was not good
