The Spice Girls kicked off their long-awaited reunion tour in Dublin’s Croke Park on Friday, playing to a sold-out crowd of more than 75,000.
And while fans were overjoyed to see Mel B, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton together again onstage, the group’s first performance since opening the 2012 Olympics in London was beset with sound problems.
While fans close to the stage reportedly experienced a great show, numerous concertgoers sitting up in the stands took to Twitter to complain they were unable to hear the women singing, and that they struggled to make out what song the group was even performing.
On Friday, reports People, “Scary Spice” Mel B responded to the complaints in a video on her Instagram Story.
“Hey guys, thank you for attending our show tonight in Dublin. We will see you in Cardiff and hopefully the vocals and the sound will be much, much better,” she said, ending with a sigh.
According to People, a rep didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Spice Girls’ 13-date tour continues through to June 22, with the next concert to take place Monday in Cardiff, Wales.
