Over 60 thousand people were in attendance at Bonaroo this weekend. Eminem’s performance is drawing some criticism, however, because in the middle of the set, they used a gunshot sound effect. The crowd started ducking, panicking and screaming. A spokesman for Eminem told Billboard that contrary to the reports, it was not a gun effect, it was “a pyrotechnic concussion which creates a loud boom”. He has been using this effect for years, as have many other artists. Without complaint.
