Capital Sound sets the controls
for Australian Pink Floyd Show
Since 1988, The Australian Pink Floyd Show has been taking the ‘tribute act’ concept to extremes by bringing the aural and visual spectacle of Pink Floyd’s live shows to enthusiastic audiences around the world. The band’s current European tour includes a month of UK dates, which start in mid February, for which Capital Sound Hire is providing the audio system.
The tour’s venues are a mixture of theatre and arenas, so Capital is supplying a flexible Martin Audio MLA system, comprising MLA, MLAc and WS218x subs with LM front fills. FOH sound mixed by Jonathan Brooks on a DiGiCo SD8, whilst monitors comprise a comprehensive package of Sennheiser G3 IEMs and Martin LE1500 floor monitors, mixed by Matt Coton on a DiGiCo SD10.
The Capital Sound crew includes MLA technician Marty Beath and monitor techs Robin Conway and Bheki Phakathi sharing duties over the tour’s four legs.
“We’re delighted to be working with such a phenomenon,” says Capital’s general manager Paul Timmins. “It’s a demanding tour and, as always, audio quality is at the forefront of their requirements. We’re looking forward to a great tour.”
