Patti Smith Says Barclays Center is Like a Cockroach

Patti Smith and Neil Young played Barclays Center Monday night and, naturally, folks tweeted about it.

One fan wrote, “patti smith just likened the barclays center to a cockroach… while playing barclays center.”

    I was at that show. I missed the cockroach comment but can affirm that she played and epic set!

    I was there last night, yes Patti did say that, felt it was a bit rude… But she still put on a great show. Neil Young & Crazy Horse were excellent, as expected.

    The huge disappointment was the acoustics at the Barclay’s Center. The sound quality was terrible, it is clear absolutely no consideration was given to acoustics in the design or construction. The reverberation was so bad my girlfriend commented “I feel like I’m hearing sounds from last week”…. Sadly, the BC is a failure as concert venue.

      Well, I think it looks more like a rusty armadillo than a cockroach– but it folks like her won’t speak out about this monstrosity, who will?
