The band was great. The vocals were also great. Michael McDonald was off and pitchy. That’s too bad. I saw him as a solo performer in a smaller venue 2 years ago and he sounded great, but not last night.

3.0 star rating Don in Spokane from Spokane, Washington


The sound mixing seemed off; much too harsh and, dare I say it, too loud. This harshness detracted from the evening. The band played for 2.5 hours; that was great. A mixture of old and new songs. Michael McDonald still can sing great. Covid-wise; mask compliance was about 25% and no enforcement; if that worries you, probably should stay home. But why did the band ask the audience to sing along? That is a well-described way to start a super-spreader event. That is a disappointing oversite.

3.0 star rating Tom from Seattle, Washington


I love the Doobie Brothers, but I was really disappointed with the sound mix. In particular, Michael McDonald's mic washed out horribly. The bassist and percussionist were hard to hear, too. And Michael McDonald was off on his vocal timing. But the harmonies were tight, and the other vocals and musicians sounded great.

3.0 star rating Dockmaster Michael Atilano from Marina Del Rey, California


We had 3rd row tickets, because of the rain lawn crowd was allowed to fill empty seats. Shortly after the concert began the people around me became upset because I was dancing and by 'Dependin' On You', the 6th song in their set, we decided to leave. Crowd was atrocious and wanted to sit the entire time. Doobies sounded fantastic, too bad the crowd sucked

2.0 star rating Marybeth H from Nashville, Tennessee


Excited to finally come to Nashville for the Doobie Brothers Concert that was cancelled twice. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The sound was horrible. Too loud drowned out the vocals. Sound Team? We tried to stay, but had enough of the ear piercing volume level.

We moved from Nashville last year so would be flying in for this show. The last band on my bucket list and I was so excited! I was also very happy you needed to be vaccinated or had a negative Covid test to attend. Flash forward, we're sitting in our seats, the band is late, which we expected, and it finally begins... THE WORST ACOUSTICS of any concert I have ever seen in my 55 years. It was so over-amplified and loud that it was distorted and hurt our ears. I must think they had it turned up to match Michael McDonald's power, as I have no other explanation as to why. You couldn't distinguish between instruments. It was awful! We left about an hour into it as we were disgusted.

After almost two years of waiting, due to rescheduling, to see/hear one of my favorite bands of all time I sat thru nine songs then got up and walked out. Why? Simply because the sound system was cranked up so high that every instrument, except drums, and every voice was so distorted that it ruined the music. Lyrics so loud could'nt understand a word sung. sounded like singing with a mouth full of mush into an empty can. The audience applauded between songs but I can't say how enthusiastically cause my ears were ringing from all the distorted noise of the band. I've been to many concerts and never experienced such disregard for the quality of the music and the audience with way over the top volume that distorts every sound coming from the stage. So disappointed. And to make matters worse it was a gift from my son who was with me and had to come find me after I walked out. Hearing my reason he said he would agree it was way to loud. I can handle loud, after all it's rock'n roll, but so loud it distorts the music is not acceptable.
