- Fans are reporting that the sound at the Spice Girls' first reunion tour concert was so bad that people were walking out.
- FYI, this is a highly anticipated and mostly sold out tour, so they prob want to fix these issues ASAP!
Last night the Spice Girls (minus Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice) kicked off their reunion tour at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland. Fans have been freaking out about this tour for months now, and tickets sold out in minutes, so it's fair to say that this show was a big deal!
However, according to Twitter, it looks like the Friday night performance did *not* go as planned. In fact, fans who had paid hundreds of pounds for a seat were literally walking out! Apparently, the sound quality was so bad in certain parts of the venue that concertgoers couldn't hear what was going on, which is (duh) the whole point of a concert!
Fans did not hold back about their disappointment on Twitter, posting things like, "I was at their show in Dublin last night and it was a disgrace. Sound was shocking. Tons of people left early and it was a very expensive waste of money," "Too bad you can’t hear a thing. The sound is awful...Loads of people leaving," and "There’s something wrong when the crowd at @spicegirls concert are all sitting down because no one has a clue what song is on because the sound really is THAT bad." Yikes!!
I really hope theh sort out all the sound problems before theh actually perform in the UK.- Gary Banks (Garrii) (@Garrii) May 25, 2019

Sound was shocking. Tons of people left early and it was a very expensive waste of money.

The #spicegirls put on a fabulous show tonight. But am really surprised that nobody seems to be talking about how poor the sound was. Could hardly make out the words they were saying at times. Was worst sound I’ve ever heard at a concert pic.twitter.com/UnKsi3B4Wo- Louise Sullivan (@lousul) May 24, 2019
Too bad you can’t hear a thing. The sound is awful. Was perfect for Jess Glynn & is horrific now. Loads of people leaving.- Yvonne Rossiter (@msvonage) May 24, 2019
That said, it seems like those who could hear the concert really enjoyed it, so there's that!
Mel B, aka Scary Spice, responded to the complaints on her Insta stories, saying "hopefully the vocals and the sound will be much, much better" for their show on Monday. So, uh, maybe people won't be walking out next time!
