Dave Stewart, known as the Ringmaster, pulls musicians from across the globe together to play two UK dates to celebrate his 65th Birthday. Guests included Bob Geldof, Jon Stevens, Johnny Borrell, Diane Birch & Candy Dulpher to name a few.


King Sound supplied a control and monitors package for the UK Dates, plus a full PA for the Sunderland Empire Show.

FOH engineer Tom New selected a DiGiCo SD12 console for his mix, supplemented with Waves running via DiGiCo’s Sound Grid.

Over in monitor world, engineer Dean Turner used a Midas Pro2 console. ''The band were all on a combination of In-Ear-Monitors with an additional eight wedge mixes and side fills . The Pro2 was a compact choice for the multiple mixes Dean needed to keep on top of."


For the touring PA, a full L-Acoustics Kara system all powered by the LA8 amplifiers. Additional KIVA II were carried for out fills and lip fills.
