Atlanta Symphony Hall
« on: March 16, 2012, 03:45:07 PM »
Saw John Hiatt and Lyle Lovett at the Symphony Hall.  Acoustic show with just the two of them on stage (very much like the show they did several years back at the Tabernacle with Guy Clark and Joe Ely).  Francine Reed, who sings in Lyle's Large Band and lives in the ATL, was in the audience.  Lyle recognized her and she got up on stage for a duet.  I'm sure the Hall is great for symphonic music but I was getting an echo when Hiatt was singing.  A friend who in the second balcony said the acoustics were terrible and he couldn't understand any of Lovett's lyrics.  V heard people complaining when they were leaving after about 1/3 of the show about the amount of banter between the two artists.  That is one of the appealing aspects of seeing these two together.

The Hall is NOT great for symphonies - everyone has complained for years about it, they tried to fix it with some baffles a dozen or so years ago to no avail.  This is why they keep trying to build a new hall!

Yeah, it's very disappointing.
