According to information from the GB News, tickets to witness the tributes cost around £40 (approximately R$260 at current prices) per person. In the vehicle, several people who went to the show reported how they didn’t know which song was playing.

“We’ve been looking forward to this for weeks and really excited. We thought it would be a really cool night, but no,” one concertgoer told The Telegraph. “The noise level was unbelievable. You couldn’t understand what track they were playing until there were some interruptions… my ears were ringing.”

I’m not sure if it was the acoustics of the cathedral. I don’t think the band could have been that bad. I feel for them.

Furthermore, a spokesperson for Winchester Cathedral spoke out to GB News and explained how both parties are “disappointed” with the way the presentation went — and are working “to understand what went wrong.”

“We are very disappointed because the quality of the concert we held on Saturday fell short of the expectations of the cathedral and our guests,” he said John Blakecommercial director of Winchester Cathedral. “There were some areas of the cathedral where the acoustics and sound levels were not satisfactory. We recognized this and worked with the production company Beatles by Candlelight and our sound engineers to understand what went wrong and ensure it doesn’t happen in the future.”
