It seems that not just Maiden Revelations were critical of the sound quality at Friends Arena in Stockholm this summer…
Blabbermouth reports that promoter Live Nation conducted an “internal investigation” after the stream of complaints from Iron Maiden fans, but that there will be no refunds for concert goers who were unhappy with the sound quality.
Regular concert goer Per Svedenbring was utterly disappointed with Maiden’s sound production this summer, saying it was “the worst sound I’ve heard in 40 years.”
The no-refund outcome is probably a given, so it seems a little strange that Live Nation would do the investigation at all. “Sound experience is subjective,” the promoter claims, rather weakly. But at least they took the fans seriously enough to investigate the matter and conclude that the sound quality was “good enough”.
So, is “good enough” really the proper Maiden standard, Steve and Rod?
