Just do ADR in post. That's how all the big interviews are done these days.
Wouldn't that require you to bring the interviewee to the studio? I'm not sure if you're just joking or I don't understand how ADR is done.

We are at a lot of very large live events such as car shows, bike shows, etc and when we interview people the background noise ruins all the audio. Any tips, tricks, techniques, technology, etc for handling this issue. Handheld mics seem to freak people out so was hoping for some type of easy lav mic that can be quickly attached and detached or something...

Thanks!

I have had very good results with 2 unidirectional lav mics.  where you do the interview should be in a relatively quieter place but even in the middle of a crowd at NAB, the 2 lavs gave very clear voice quality.  If you want better use a headset mic like Shure SM35 which is easy for an interviewee to put on.

If you have the coin, buy a cedar dns 2. It's a very well made noise suppressor.  It's pricey, but if doing interviews in loud environments is your gig, this should be in your toolbox.

I looked into one of those once. The price was eye opening to say the least!
They do work, though.

Isn't that only necessary for live work? It sounds more like the OP is recording to be published later. There are a ton of great noise reduction plugins that can be used in post.

Used these a bunch.  Kinda miraculous, although easy to overuse...

Essentially, yes. 😀

Taken too far things start to sound a bit robotic and weird. Still a pretty amazing device. Especially good at removing air handling and other steady state background noise nearly seamlessly.
