TREMENDOUS BAND, HORRIFIC SOUND REPRODUCTION
REO played their hearts out. The sound was so garbled that what lead singer Kevin Cronin said in between songs was unintelligible. When he spoke into the mic it sounded like a fast food drive thru speaker at 125 decibels. The sound was so muddled that the only performances that shone thru were Dave Amato’s guitar solos. Since I really liked the venue, I would like to know if the issue was on the part of REO Speedwagon’s sound engineering or was it an issue with Ruth Ekerd hall?

REO SPEEDWAGON 7/21/21 CLEARWATER, FL
Have seen REO 3-4 times over the last 25 years. This show was at Ruth Eckerd Hall In Clearwater. Acoustically a perfect venue. The show wound have been great if the REO sound guy wasn’t deaf. Overall volume was at a consistent 107-110 decibels. Way too freakin loud which ruined the show.

OMAHA CONCERT 12 OCT 2021
Good band but too loud for sure. Would have been much better if the vocal volume were left alone and the instrument volume dropped. My ears rang though the night after the concert. Vocals were hard to understand.

GREAT THEATER, BAND NOT SO MUCH
We had great seats and loved the theater, however lead singer for REO was sick and they trucked in a cover band to waste and hour and then REO tried to perform and it was a train wreck. I feel as if I wasted $300 on a high school band gathering. Why was this concert not canceled and rescheduled? If the lead singer is so sick that he can not hardly speak how can REO justify taking everyone's money for a sing along. Completely feel ripped off by a band I have always loved so much

THOUGHT THIS WOULD MAKE A NICE XMAS PRESENT FOR THE WIFE
Very disappointed that they called this a concert. Cover band was good but that’s not who I paid for. They could have lip synced and put on a better performance.

REO @ RUTH ECKERD
Horrible! Went to celebrate our 40 th anniversary , having loved REO that long and it was terrible. The music was unrecognizable because of the volume and the terrible sound system. Waste of money and time. Very disappointed.

TERRIBLE SOUND QUALITY
The sound quality was terrible. For one, it was too loud, and the two the lyrics were muffled. We left along with the majority of the others before it was over. It wasn't the venue, it's the band. The warm up band was fine, REO was a big disappointment.
