While Bruce Springsteen's first gig at Croke Park on Friday night was deemed a resounding success by the vast majority in attendance, a number of fans were disappointed by the sound in the Dublin stadium.

A small selection of the 80,000 fans in attendance took to social media to complain about the sound quality, which appeared to be a particular issue in the stands, including Cusack, Davin and Hogan.

Some fans claimed that many people left the concert early due to their dissatisfaction with the sound.

Sound quality appeared to be best on the pitch.

Organisers Aiken Promotions have also revealed that they received complaints, but say that these were acted upon during the three and a half hour concert.

"A small number of complaints in relation to sound were brought to organisers’ attention, and we in turn brought them to the sound engineers’ attention and believe they were rectified," they said in a statement.

This would appear to be corroborated by Fingal County Councillor Darragh Butler who tweeted about the "appalling" sound in Upper Hogan around 8pm.

However, he later tweeted that it had "improved somewhat" so the gig "turned out okay after all!".
