DR Koncerthuset Reviews

I happily caught Bobby McFerrin and his new show. The venue was perfect in that you feel so close to the artist. The acoustics were spot on for the eclectic jazz styled show. I can just imagine how a.... more »
Lovely, modern venue with interior design in warm and welcoming colours, great spaces and a concert hall optimised for excellent sound. I went there for comedy and now want to go back for a musical experience as well!
The premises and acoustics are great. Their beverages policy is not. Cheap and nasty wine sold for good money; leaves a bad taste in your mouth, in more ways that one ... but worse than that, and the reason for such a low rating, is that their policy is to allow people to take drinks into the hall itself during the concert in plastic cups. Completely ruined the atmosphere to be trying to immerse yourself into beautiful music and surroundings only to be disturbed multiple times during a concert by the sound of someone accidentally kicking/treading on a plastic cup. What a farce; and, worst of all, a complete insult to all the time, effort and energy that the performing musicians invest in trying to make their performances as magical as possible.
