Fortunately the band is not playing for just you. There are 3 bands every night, just head out to another square. Problem solved

I am sensitive to loud music, so always have an earplug with me (one will take care of the discomfort).

Yes the music is way way too loud at the squares!! When you ask the sound guy to please turn it down he laughs at you and then proceeds to turn the volume higher!! You know what we pay for this music would be nice if we could enjoy it at a decent noise level!! But then who are we only the people who live here and listen to the sound barrier breaking music!!!

Do not understand, the squares are rather large areas, can you not just move back until the volume is at your liking? Go to the back side of the stage or the side to again have the sound level at your preference.

Me too - I have two. I always wear them at the movie theaters. We went to the Sharon one time, sitting in front row near the speakers, and we had to leave at half time. WAY too loud - I was afraid of it damaging my hearing.

If the music is too loud, you might try to position your seats out of the direct line of fire of the speakers. Sometimes that is enough to make a difference. If you like being in the direct view, try some inexpensive ear plugs to filter the db down some.

You can get ear plugs. Go to Walmart to sporting goods and they have small ear plugs that shooters use. $4 for 32.

I discovered this many years ago. I went to a lot of concerts in the 70's, Deep Purple in '72 doing Child in Time was unreal and probably Journey with Steve Perry in 1980 was the loudest, very high pitched especially Steve's vocals and the keyboards. However, it wasn't until 1984 when I saw Def Leppard on the Pyromania Tour with Krokus opening that I had noticed a hearing problem, everything sounded muffled afterwards for 3 days. Ever since then when I go to a concert I take ear plugs. I don't always use them, depends on where I'm sitting, I still have great hearing at age 69. I sat in the front row of Mickey Thomas and Starship last year at Savannah Center, the sound was perfect without the plugs.

Default Loud music at the squares

I used to enjoy going to the squares at night but over the last year the music has been so loud that we often leave. It seems that Brownwood is the worse and maybe it’s because of the bleacher area. I realize many may be hard of hearing but all off us will be if we listen to it that loud. Even walking across the street and listening is sometimes to loud to have conversations.

That sounds correct. Some of the bands are extremely LOUD. Some are not.

Maybe the music is no louder than last year or the year before but the listener(s) are one or two years older....maybe less tolerance for the same volume...maybe hearing ability has changed with aging....

OK to observe ones likes or dislikes....can't please everybody...
however as some have been noted there are many options available to solving the problem if one really enjoys the music and being out.
