I am giving up with live, amplified, concerts. More often than not, a really good, to great performance, ruined, by having to listen to some shit hifi, managed by a dickhead knob twiddler.
I have heard a number of systems, in peoples homes, at shows, etc, and almost without fail, the live music sounds worse.
Then the other punters who have almost anything to do, other than shut up, and listen to the music.
It is nice to see a really personable performer, tell stories, do alternate takes, and just engage with the audience.
But with the price of tickets, shit sound, and all the hassle, it is just going to be classical, or nothing.
