Yeah, sure, because, soundmen just LOVE hundreds of random geniuses coming up to them during a show to tell them how shitty they're doing their jobs...

Not much you can do with technology at the moment to fix a poorly recorded mix. I'd say use some EQ to try and zero in on the frequencies in the vocals , but that's not really gonna do it...

Short of asking the soundman to mix it better, maybe focusing on getting a better recording by being in a better spot in the hall to capture the sound with a more balanced mix is the only solution...
