My first and last concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center was last night. Was looking forward to seeing the Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox Twenty, particularly the latter. The setting was easy to get to from Philadelphia via a short ferry ride. The setting was attractive, but the positives stop there. The audio equipment and the accoustics of the venue were horrible. At first I assumed that the opening act could not sing as we could not understand anything they were singing, but even when speaking into the microphone it reflected poor quality. Then the assumption was that the opening act did not do a good sound check that day. Nope. The Goo Goo Dolls started to perform and it was only the fact that I know some of their music that I could recognize some songs. Although we had prime orchestra seats, we move further back to see if we got a better accoustics. Nothing. We left the venue after only about 5 songs in by this band, totally missing the main band. To us, it made no sense to not enjoy a garbled performance so we lost out on our money for the tickets. We will never attend a concert here. Susquehanna Bank should rethink having their name associated with this venue.
