Spice Girls Fans Walk Out Of Concert As Sound Messes Up For The Second Time
Some fans who scrambled to get their hands on Spice Girls reunion tour tickets have so far been left disappointed, complaining of sound issues for the second night.
During their performance at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on Monday night, a few claimed the Spice Girls' sound quality was so poor they could barely hear what song was being performed.
Others complained about getting wet as the stadium roof was left open.
This follows similar complaints about the band's sound at their opening night in Croke Park in Dublin on Friday.
Feeling extremely disappointed with the Spice Girls. Left after 30 mins sound was awful. @GeriHalliwell @MelanieCmusic @EmmaBunton you need to sort this out for your fans! £85 a ticket and left a concert for the first time ever

One fan wrote on Twitter: "Feeling extremely disappointed with the Spice Girls. Left after 30 mins sound was awful.
So apparently the sound at spice girls Cardiff gig is still as bad as what Dublin was. And I read it's raining. And they won't close the roof.

There's something wrong when the crowd at @spicegirls concert are all sitting down because no one has a clue what song is on because the sound really is THAT bad. @mcd_productions @CrokePark @IrishTimes @LovinDublin #SpiceWorldTour #SpiceGirl pic.twitter.com/QkENc7BJ8Y

One fan who walked out on the girls' Cardiff gig was Alison Powell, from Chepstow, Monmouthshire. Alice paid £70 for a ticket but ended up leaving 45 minutes early.
"It was really, really disappointing," she told BBC Radio Wales. "You couldn't hear anything they were singing. The band drowned them out. You couldn't hear the harmonies, you couldn't hear the words."
She added: "When they started talking to each other and there was a bit of banter on stage, you just couldn't hear it.
"It left us totally flat, so flat that we actually left early - about three-quarters-of-an-hour before the end.
"We weren't the only ones leaving. People were saying they were also really disappointed."
Some fans have even demanded refunds for the gig.
Despite this, the negative reviews have been weighed up with positive ones, with many calling the shows "amazing".

One fan called the Cardiff show 'phenomenal', saying: "That was an absolutely phenomenal show in Cardiff. Thank you so much, made amazing memories with my 11 year old daughter who is basically me at my first Spice Girls concert [sic]."
The girls' opening night in Dublin was the first time they have officially reunited since their performance at the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony.
Next, the girls will be heading to Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Bristol, before finishing their tour at London's Wembley Stadium.
