Indoor vs outdoor. 90k vs. 10k. And it's not supposed to be a concert.
Both pretended as such and D's blew out the A's. Event size has no bearing on the lineup and execution of the singers/music. Bottom line, A's focused on providing a posh event for their one percenters while D's focused on providing an experience for every last person in the rafters. Both were very successful.

So we are measuring the success of two events based on the music and food?
Choir, music, sound?
So basically Dirshu through a better concert then Agudah?
I attended the barcley center last month and was truly inspired by the speeches (and one man band at the barcley) there was no food, no crazy band and singers but there were yidden getting together to celebrate the finishing of Shas.
People finishing shas has no bearing on whether organizers did a good job. They're tasked with providing a comfortable and enjoyable celebration. Music, sound is not the core of the event but it is the core of the organizers' jobs.

Dude I love Jews. I am a Jew. My mother is Jewish. They had the best musicians and choir in the world! Just when it comes to sound production it all matters in experience. Very simple. Keep your hate to a minimum if you can.
Agree. Agree. Agree. (Was kinda kidding around  8))

That movie/opera thing was a 100 piece puzzle and they had a few minor hiccups but in the grand scheme it worked out. Plot was ok. Seemed like a Yankel Hakoines wannabe. Didn't come close though.

Yes it was. And maybe cuz they hired a goyishe company with real event experience
Man you have it out for the Jews tonight. At least you're not asking for Taylor Swift. I'm sure he/she is better than Ahrele.

In Dirshu’s defense, it was the first time they did this in America so cut them some slack...Perhaps they should’ve brought in sound guys from Israel. They’re the best
The concert lighting was very cool.

Worship his money....
You obviously don't know him and I don't think the event gave that impression at all.

In addition, the ushers (heimishe Yoilys) did terrible job keeping ppl from coming down to the aisles. Also for those of us who had $180 tickets to get “food” was total fluke. They had to close the restaurant in middle cuz there was no food anymore
Lol. Guys were marching around the $10 with cartons of food they brought up somehow.

The one thing where he leaves Agudah in the dust is the non worship of the $$$$$.

Ehem eHem... sound was horrendous by the last dance set at the end. And throughout the entire event was decent at best. They didn’t nail it unfortunately. Time to hire real goyishe sound guys that do these mega concerts for a living instead of using the sound guy who’ll be tomorrow in Ateres Chaya...
Same here. I sat in the highest section and there was zero coverage. I literally went down at every music production so I can hear.

Speaker lineup here was pretty solid, but Novominsker, R Frand, R Shmuel, R Antwerp were also no disasters. Plus the on field snippets, plus the videos which were all great hits.

Choir. Music. Sound. Production. Actually gave people a few bottles of water, a sandwich and danishes, instead of the super stingy Aguda.
The fact that this was a better concert doesn't make Agudah a disaster. Levine, Daskal Helfgott are no disasters. Of course sound is better in a smaller indoor venue.

I was at both too. What exactly are you calling a disaster there vs success here?
