No complaints after toned down Pete Murray show

HARVEY Road Tavern nailed the noise levels at the Pete Murray concert on Saturday night, with neighbours saying levels were significantly lower than the Hilltop Hoods concert last month.

That concert drew the ire of residents because of the level of noise and swearing.

More than 900 people attended the well-organised gig at Marley Brown Oval that finished at 11pm.

Mindii Collins said she could "just" hear the concert from her backyard and was impressed the venue had taken on board negative comments after the last concert.

"We could still hear it and enjoyed it although it wasn't too loud," she said.

Shift worker Kylee Haines agreed, but said there had to be a balance between attracting acts to Gladstone to build a live music scene and keeping the peace outside.

"I could hear the Hilltop Hoods concert clearly, but Pete Murray concert seemed to be toned down," she said.

"We have to support entertainment coming to Gladstone and we can't please everyone."
