I don't know how people will take the sing alongs. Time will tell. So far so good. The crowds going now seem to have overall positive feedback and it's no longer fans and family. This is the public. I think it would only be a problem if you have a true loudmouth next to you...but you run that risk at any public event. Personally, I like that people are singing.
