Hi guys just thought I'd try and address the elephant in the room regarding swans, by which I mean the bone shaking, ear splitting, tinnitus inducing level they play at. I love swans and can't walk t to see them and from the set lists I'm seeing its going to be a real treat. However a few friends of mine went to see them in Leeds, one of them got full on tinnitus and the other two had pretty knackered hearing despite earplugs. My question if anyone can help is will earplugs be needed or will they tone it down (outdoors at a folk festival). I'm hoping not, as it may spoil some of the experience, but I don't want to waste cash on earplugs (that could go towards cider).
Just curious as to what I should prepare for.
