BOOMING SOUND RUINS IT ALL AT MOHEGAN SUN!
You would think that all these negative reviews would wake this group up. They have amazing voices but they need to be heard to hear them! We left after 30 minutes with our ears ringing. We’ve been to other concerts at Mohegan Sun and never experienced sound this bad. We were told by Mohegan Sun employees that this was at the discretion of the group. Rachel Platten who proceeded the group was great and not nearly at the same volume. When I see this same complaint on this site, regardless of venue, you know this is the group calling the shots. Good grief guys, get the message. You’re phenomenal, but nobody going to your concert would know that with ear-splitting 120db sound levels and insane bass. Just sing and let your voices do the work!!

Shockingly disappointing. It shouldn’t be all about the bass - and that’s what we got. Only Chance to enjoy their talent and harmonies was when they unplugged and sang without mics.

ANOTHER BAD REVIEW
So many people from so many different venues have sad the same thing. "If you like Pentatonix for their amazing vocals, you will never hear them at this concert. You would think you went to the wrong concert. It was overwhelmingly loud, bass was ear shattering ... Could not hear any harmonizing much less any words..." (our seats were second row orchestra). Sound system at the Daily Place was awful, lighting seemed poorly planned, almost an hour wait between the opening act and PTX. The group seemed like fantastic performers but considering the consistency in all of the bad reviews in many different venues you'd think they'd make some changes. The one positive - the staff at DP seemed outstanding. From the time we were greeted at the lot until we left everyone was very polite and appeared to really know what they were doing.

HORRIBLE SOUND AND LIGHTING
I have seen the Pentatonix 6 times and totally loved them each time. However this tour had such horrible sound, mainly too much bass, and lights flashing in your eyes that I left. Very disappointing. I should have read all the other bad reviews before purchasing tickets. They need to find a new sound guy! I hope they read all the reviews and fix these issues for all their other fans in upcoming shows. Didn’t anyone notice people were leaving in droves during the show?????

AWESOME GROUP; AWFUL EXPERIENCE
Bass guy's mic was turned up way too loud; couldn't hear the main singers at all; kept showing brights lights toward the audience; often made it hard to see; waited way too long for Pentatonix to come out after Rachel Platten finished; venue was way too hot....even after the sun went down; everyone was sweating; some people really smelled; it was an awful concert experience.....even though the group is fantastic

PENTATONIX WORLD TOUR
Last night's Pentatonix show at the Bethelwoods was VERY disappointing! When my husband and I first heard this group as a guest appearance on Jackie Avancho's Christmas special, we agreed they were THE BEST vocal group we had EVER heard!! The blend of their voices and harmonies were excellent.....Last night was HORRIBLE! Ear plugs wouldn't have solved the problem! Their unique, shared talent, was LOST! We were blown out of our seats with the shear volume, and overpowering bass. How sad. The only tolerable few songs were "from the couch," " how they began." When artists are good or great, they need NOTHING but their gift to share with the audience....NO moving scenery, NO fireworks, NO additives that do NOTHING but DISTRACT! We were hoping to hear MANY songs like their Utube ,"Hallelujah." Wasn't meant to be. Doubt we will EVER return to such a venue. It's a shame, Pentatonix "share" a gift. All of them make up the package. I pray they don't become like every other ordinary group...... From the heart, Charlotte Hamilton

WORST CONCERT EVER
Everything was alright except for the sound. I could barely hear anything. They should've chosen a smaller venue. It wasn't acapella to me. It's like people fighting and chanting and the bass was horrible. Would never go to another concert of Pentatonix
