Empires touring is in full swing for 2016 and having completed the first run, I have to say that I’m having a great time mixing the event. Its certainly a step up from anything we have done in the past. With this new tour comes a new production company, Solotech who are handling all things production.
The week prior to the first run had us in rehearsals in Sydneys 301 studios with full production, enabling us to get a handle on the new elements and instrumentation for the tour.
On the audio side, the PA consists of a main LR hang of 12 x K1 over 6 x K2, 8 x K1SB (flown per side), sidefills of 6 x K1 over 8 x K2, 18 x SB28’s on the floor and Kara front fill. Coverage has been stellar. FOH and monitors are being handled by Digico SD7’s with waves extreme servers at FOH for plug in capabilities.
Empires #2 and #3 are coming in April/May and July..details are here!
Here is some footage from the tour as well as the newly released music video ‘Say The Word’ from Empires.
