Def Leppard/Journey PA provider
« on: June 03, 2018, 11:18:11 am »

Does anyone know what rig is out with Def Leppard and Journey this summer? I saw them last night at PPG Paints arena and the PA was excellent. Just curious as to what brand PA it was.

I'm going to see them on tuesday here at PNC Arena in Raleigh so I'm hoping for a good sound. It makes a huge difference to my level of enjoyment although I am sure most people don't care.

Huh, I didn't realize that Clair would provided a PA that wasn't their own.

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

Clair bought out Britannia Row, and with it their inventory, which is mostly L' Acoustic.

Saw the show last night and WOW !...
Super impressed with the sound for both bands - but LOUD!.
I forgot to take my ear plugs and it was tough sometimes trying to protect my hearing. As good as the sound was, I really don't think it needed to be that loud - maybe I'm getting old - LOL.

I was SO happy to hear the drums cut through - yet not dominate the mix. Vocals were loud and clear, all guitar solos came up and then backed off once done. Bass could be heard - louder in Def Leppard set but nice tone. Piano was  a bit much in the Journey set - good job he's a great player - LOL. And that Arnel Pineda... boy he's good and if I closed my eyes, it could have been Steve Perry up there in places.

Light show for Def Leppard was crazy good - bit less for Journey but nice images on the back drop screen.

Arena was quite full but I was surprised to see so many empty seats. The tickets were very expensive and if they had dropped the prices a bit that place would have been a capacity crowd... shame.

Well worth seeing the show - lots of dates still to go on the tour ( I got the T shirt- ha ha)

If it's too loud, you're too old  :P

This tour was just here in Toronto this past weekend and I wish I could have gone to see this concert.

One thing I liked was that there were at least a  couple of references to Steve Perry when introducing some songs that he had a part in writing.

Journey has always been too loud as Neil has one of the loudest stage volumes of any guitar player.  I have worked with them a few times and basically the engineer has to bring up the band around Neil so the band is always too loud for the venue.
