Concerts - Do you go anymore?

When was the last time you went to a concert? I stopped going... why? The sound in the venue was terrible.

The last one I went to was Eric Clapton when he toured with a 40 piece orchestra. I thought that having an orchestra with the band would be great. Surely they would have good sound. Well they didn't. I believe the touring company was Showco and I usually don't to concerts where Showco does sound because they use their own boxes loaded with JBL components. (not a good sound very harsh on high end). I don't know who mixed the show but we didn't hear the orchestra until they got to the unplugged portion of the show. Its funny to see an orchestra playing their hearts out and not hearing a peep from them. There are very few concerts that I have gone to where the sound was great. With the new line array systems out there now, I think I will have to check it out.
