Very few shows back "then" had speakers setup in all parts of the arena. Pink Floyd had speakers around the arena for the 2 of the 3 times I saw them (the first time the venue was way too small) and ELP's Brain Salad Surgery tour concert. That's not saying nobody else did, but just shows I went to pre-1975. Smaller venues, like old movie theaters, had better acoustics than "arenas" and the theaters were designed (acoustically) to have all the audio coming from the stage/front.
