Train bringing free concert to Cleveland after Blossom Music Center audio glitch

Train revisits Cleveland after audio glitch

CLEVELAND -- Train is coming to Cleveland to perform a free concert Wednesday (June 28) just days after an audio glitch impacted their concert at Blossom Music Center.

Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica will host the free Train concert at 9 p.m.

Admission to the free concert is limited to people who had paid lawn tickets for last weekend's "Play that Song" tour stop at Blossom.

"Patrons with proof of a paid lawn ticket must present their ticket to the Jacobs Pavilion box office for entry," Live Nation announced. "Entry will be limited and customers will be admitted on a first-come, first-serve basis. No other tickets will be honored."

Doors for the show will open at 7 p.m. Guests can begin lining up at 4 p.m.

"While the issues were beyond our control, we still want to make things right," Train posted on Facebook.

Live Nation is also sending out a code to lawn ticket holders via e-mail within the next 10 days with monetary credit toward a future concert at any Live Nation venue, including Blossom Music Center.

Blossom's lawn speakers stopped working during Saturday's concert after Train had performed a handful of songs. During the speaker outage, chants of "fix the sound" echoed among the lawn guests as hordes left the performance early.

Barry Gable, with Live nation tells WKYC that his engineering staff tried to fix the problem that night , but the sound kept going in and out after the 3rd and 4th song. 

It wasn’t until the next morning when Gable had an electrician come out to check the sound system ,that the problem was identified.

Gable says, "They had to fix a part and we're allocating many hours right now to assure there are no problems for the Grateful Dead Show tomorrow."

Train said they were unaware of the glitch during the performance.
