Disappointed with the sound quality of the band, but really my disappointment lies with Paul Banks vocals. Muttering, muffled, indiscernible at times. Ive read how his vocal stylings seem to be ever evolving due to age and smoking, but it’s like they over modulated the instruments to drown him out. I’ve been to shows at the Ritz before and I know it’s not their sound system or the venue. Everyone I spoke with that went to the show had a similar response. Many left early. And don’t get me started about the opening act...The overwhelming positive responses sparked me to post this.
Easily one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. Fogarino’s drumming echoed throughout the Chicago Theater tirelessly, while Kessler’s slick guitar riffs balanced out the must-see light show that went along with each song; Banks’s voice was a beautiful sound to hear. 10/10
