Kygo played Red Rocks Amphitheatre a few days ago, and the venue asked fans in the 40th and above rows to bring wired headphones to the show, so they could use an app to hear the show “straight from the soundboard.” This created such a stir that a petition was created to repeal the noise ordinance at Red Rocks. At the time of this post the petition currently has 15,082 signatures.
This is the Tweet that has everyone all riled up.
Coming to Red Rocks tonight? Rows 40 & up, bring WIRED headphones & download @mixhalo! Mixhalo lets you listen to studio-quality, in-ear audio straight from the soundboard. Even if you’re in the back, it’ll sound like the front row! Free! https://t.co/vC7PAlJKst pic.twitter.com/2i2qJj5Nmz

Sound ordinances are so strict now you can’t even utilize the acoustics of an amphitheater renowned for its acoustics
Love it. Stay gold Morrison.
