One woman tweeted that she suffers from mild PTSD and called the use of sound effects "irresponsible and distasteful".

At the end, one loud bang can clearly be heard in footage uploaded by a fan at the concert.

Eminem doesn't use gunshot sound effects during his live show, his spokesman said, after the rapper came under fire for a series of blast sounds that were mistaken by several festival attendees as gunshots. "Would have been good to have a warning before show".

Supporters of Eminem back this claim and those in attendance during the performance Saturday night say they did not feel threatened at all by the concussion sounds. Following the mass shooting at Las Vegas' Route 91 Harvest Festival previous year, Eminem's controversial artistic decision has been branded "EXTREMELY irresponsible and distasteful" by one attendee.
