I loved the mix of old and new songs, but the sound mix was not good, and it was way too loud. After about three sax solos I was over it - it became monotonous.

SHORELINE AND THE DOOBIE BROTHERS ALL NEED WORK!
I purchased tickets months ago when I realized that the 50th anniversary dates had been extended and we would be able to see Tge Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald. We got there early, I had purchased tix in the seated area as we are no longer able to sit on the ground. Just as the music is getting started the employees of Shoreline started sitting lawn seat purchasers in front of us! Not only that but the people they moved proceeded to talk over the music! Then after waiting to see the band again and everyone sounded sharp except Michael. It seemed like he couldn’t keep up with the tempo, nor could he sing the song! It sounded like he was trying to sing and play while running a marathon! I was extremely disappointed. Performers need to learn to admit when they are done and retire. It’s either he’s not kept in musical shape or the sound system for him alone was messed up. Very sad. And Shireline I deserve free tix to a show where you aren’t going to seat low life loud mouths in front of me! You want to have a visit?! Go to an effing cafe! You want to sing and dance and enjoy the mipusic, then a concert is where you belong!

Excited to finally come to Nashville for the Doobie Brothers Concert that was cancelled twice.
Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The sound was horrible. Too loud drowned out the vocals. Sound Team? We tried to stay, but had enough of the ear piercing volume level.

NOT WORTH WAITING 2-YEARS FOR!
We moved from Nashville last year so would be flying in for this show. The last band on my bucket list and I was so excited! I was also very happy you needed to be vaccinated or had a negative Covid test to attend. Flash forward, we're sitting in our seats, the band is late, which we expected, and it finally begins... THE WORST ACOUSTICS of any concert I have ever seen in my 55 years. It was so over-amplified and loud that it was distorted and hurt our ears. I must think they had it turned up to match Michael McDonald's power, as I have no other explanation as to why. You couldn't distinguish between instruments. It was awful! We left about an hour into it as we were disgusted.

LITERALLY BLOWN AWAY.
After almost two years of waiting, due to rescheduling, to see/hear one of my favorite bands of all time I sat thru nine songs then got up and walked out. Why? Simply because the sound system was cranked up so high that every instrument, except drums, and every voice was so distorted that it ruined the music. Lyrics so loud could'nt understand a word sung. sounded like singing with a mouth full of mush into an empty can. The audience applauded between songs but I can't say how enthusiastically cause my ears were ringing from all the distorted noise of the band. I've been to many concerts and never experienced such disregard for the quality of the music and the audience with way over the top volume that distorts every sound coming from the stage. So disappointed. And to make matters worse it was a gift from my son who was with me and had to come find me after I walked out. Hearing my reason he said he would agree it was way to loud. I can handle loud, after all it's rock'n roll, but so loud it distorts the music is not acceptable.

DOOBIE AT BUD GARDENS LONDON ONTARIO
I am a huge fan and was so excited to see them (in my top 5 of all time). The sound quality was extremely distorted. It was hard to hear anything that was said. Much worse, it was even difficult to identify the song until several bars in. Michael McDonald was the biggest disappointment...he went out of his way to sing all my favourite song differently. Different timing, different intonation...I wanted to hear the songs I love note for note. He changed them so much, it was impossible to sing along. The set (lighting and visuals) was low-budget and dated. It was a great vibe in the audience because we all love them and sang with them. ust wished they had put more effort into the sound. Michael needs to be more engage.

NOT WORTH THE WAIT
The Doobies can still rock after 50 years on the road. But they need to give the audience what they want - to hear the hits! The band played 17 songs before we recognized one of their hits. Don’t play 3 songs from your new album - no one cares! Also, if you say the concert starts at 7:30 don’t start at 7:56. Very disrespectful to the audience.
