'Noise Police' Happy With Calgary's MONSTERS OF ROCK Festival

CTV Calgary reports that the massive Monsters of Rock festival at McMahon stadium in Calgary, Alberta, Canada was not as loud, or as rowdy, as some had feared.

There were a couple of noise complaints, but authorities say the Monsters of Rock — which featured such acts as OZZY OSBOURNE and JUDAS PRIEST — did not breach the noise limit.

Calgary bylaw officers monitored the sound levels throughout the day and evening, but bylaw boss, Bill Bruce, says all of the fears appear to be unfounded.

"We did get two noise complaints on the issues around they could hear the sound. We tested, sound levels running around the 57-decibel range for the most part, well under the bylaw level. So all in all, we wrapped up as a fairly successful event."

McMahon Stadium Society worker Jason Garson spent time Sunday morning going through the surrounding neighborhoods, cleaning up anything left over from the Monsters of Rock concert.

"We did a pretty good job of keeping people's plastic cups inside when they were leaving," he said. "I thought most of our stuff would be in the parking lot around the vehicles, and that's mostly what we've found so far."
