The SpiceWorld Tour kicked off last night in Ireland's Croke Park stadium, with up to 80,000 attendees said to have shown up.
Conflicting rumour of how many people were actually in attendance in Croke Park seem to be rife - but as long as everyone had a good time, who cares, right? Well, apparently, some people were left upset with the return of the Spice Girls.
It appears that there may have been some vocal and sound issues, that plagued their set and hindered some concert-goers nights.
There’s something wrong when the crowd at @spicegirls concert are all sitting down because no one has a clue what song is on because the sound really is THAT bad. @mcd_productions @CrokePark @IrishTimes @LovinDublin #SpiceWorldTour #SpiceGirl pic.twitter.com/QkENc7BJ8Y

The #spicegirls put on a fabulous show tonight. But am really surprised that nobody seems to be talking about how poor the sound was. Could hardly make out the words they were saying at times. Was worst sound I’ve ever heard at a concert pic.twitter.com/UnKsi3B4Wo

Sound was just awful! Couldn’t hear them sing and the odd time the mic sound would spike and give feedback making it even worse! Lucky they’ve such iconic songs that we just got on with it!

And one Spice Girl in particular addressed the problem on social media. Uploading to her Instagram story, Mel B let her followers know her thoughts on the first night of the tour. Thanking her fans, and riling up anticipation for the groups next stop in Cardiff, the singer went on to say "... hopefully the vocals and the sound will be much, much better".

However, not to make our nation sound all high and mighty but... sure, aren't we just the best at just getting on with it? Apart from a few people, thousands of attendees seemed to have had one hell of a night. Just take a look at this pre-Spice Girls Irish dancing set if you don't believe us.

Congratulations girls & all the team! It was INCREDIBLE ? The atmosphere was electric - the huge crowd sang & danced all night! A couple of sound issues didn’t spoil the fantastic night! The girls seemed genuinely bowled over by the amazing reception they got! No encore though?

We also commend everyone who wore fancy dress to the gig, and would very much have liked to have seen this man in person.
There is a guy dressed at the Mel B character from Bo Selecta standing outside Flannerys on Camden Street and that’s made my night.
