Tennis Stadium promoters receive citations for noise violations

Following what promoters thought was a near flawless concert series at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, new complaints have surfaced and citations for noise violations have been issued by the city.

Despite hip-hop beats from a late summer performance by rappers Lil Wayne and Drake, as well a handful of A-list musical acts that played the legendary concert and tennis venue, complaints from nearby residents were few and far between according to some local leaders.

Community Board 6 (CB6) reported just eight total complaints for the entire summer. There were some warnings regarding the noise levels from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) during a recent Friday night performance by The Replacements, so promoter Madison House Presents representative Mike Luba said his company brought in sound blankets to dampen the noise for the final performance from Phil Lesh and Friends on the following Sunday night.

“We weren’t issued any problems all summer,” Luba said. “When we left Friday, we were told everything was fine, and did the show Sunday and everything was fine there. Then early in the week we were issued a citation, so it’s a little frustrating.” [FHT]
