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. Do not waste your money.

I don't even know where to start. I usually love this group! 1st they had their pet acapella group Citizen Queen open & it was so awful I wanted to leave right then. PTX - leave your pet projects for another venue rather than force them on us. They are REALLY BAD. 2nd - The Forum is WAY too big for all of you. It was so empty every note had a loud echo. The bass was ridiculously high & drowned out all the voices. Rachel was the only saving grace although the echo destroyed her sound. As for PTX - stick with smaller venues. The compilation of "medley's" was horrific. Jumping around from one bit to another rather than singing a song all the way through was painful. The audience couldn't get into it. Their new song fell flat. Trying to get the audience involved was a total failure and people actually walked out. The cello (at an acapella show?!) had a scratchy sound techs didn't get rid of. The lighting part of the show was ok. I enjoyed maybe 1 1/2 songs. MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT!

I splurged on expensive tickets to hear ( try to hear ) this ACCAPELLA Group, EXCEPT could NOT HEAR ANYTHING except the Ear Torturing Beat Box Bass!!! MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT- could barely recognize the songs-harmony was destroyed. I almost cried about the waste of time and money, not to mention the damage to all of our collective ears! SHAME!

Outrageously loud bass overwhelmed all other sounds. Could barely hear the melodies, definitely NEVER heard those gorgeous voices or harmonies that make Pentatonix great. Poorest fidelity ever heard in the amplification (way too loud too, but that’s a separate issue). You guys have reinvented pop music — so why borrow it’s worst features for your concert? Incredible DISAPPOINTMENT!! I finally left early — couldn’t bear it — after looking forward to it for months.

Terrible acoustics at Greensboro Coluseum. We were looking forward to seeing Pentatonix. So sad their powerful acopella was lost behind the shrill overall loudness. No excuses Greensboro Coluseum.

Extremely disappointed. This is not what we expected to see. We expected Pentatonix, the Acapella Group. The first two acts were fine. Rachel Platten could have been the show by herself. But it was far too long. We waited too long for Pentatonix to come on and then it was to a shocking space like, hip-hop music which was so incredibly loud you could not hear a word they were saying. We bought very expensive tickets months ago so excited to see what we thought would be the Pentatonix that we have been listening to so long. If we had wanted to go to a rock concert where our seats were actually vibrating beneath us from the intense loudness of the sound,, we would have saved all that money and gone somewhere else or donated it to a charity. What a complete waste and disappointment! The people behind us left early, as did the group in front of us and the ones to the side of us. We looked at the aisle and there was a stream of people leaving. We never leave a venue of any kind early, concert, play, game, but this one was the one we did. The first time they left the stage, we left. Unfortunately I bought a $40 T-shirt before the concert. It means nothing to me now. I won’t wear it. What a waste of their beautiful talent and voices. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT and major waste of our time and money.

Really looking forward to Pentatonix show in Montreal, however very disappointed at the sound quality. Very loud volume, to a point that some of the voices were dampened by it. What a shame! 5 stars to Rachel Platten, she continues to amaze with her energy, and vibe! Wonderful voice, amazing lyrics! Rachel, you can hold a show of your own, WAY TO GO!! You were the highlight of the evening!
