London (January 5, 2006)–Blondie recently toured the UK in support of its latest disc, The Curse of Blondie, with original members Deborah Harry, Clem Burke, Jimmy Destri and Chris Stein joined by bassist Leigh Foxx, keyboardist Kevin Patrick and guitarist Paul Carbonara. The band performing through a Canegreen-supplied audio system, comprised of 14 Meyer Sound Milo high-power curvilinear array loudspeakers.
A pair of Milo 120 high-power expanded coverage curvilinear array loudspeakers provided frontfill for the array, with six of the company’s 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofers covering the bottom end. Frontfill and sidefill were handled by a half-dozen UPA-1P compact wide coverage loudspeakers.
“The band is spot-on and very powerful,” commented Canegreen managing director Yan Stile, “and they played almost every night during a two-month tour. The venues were all quite different, which makes the Milo an ideal choice. It’s powerful enough for the larger arenas but articulate enough for the more intimate venues. And the self-powered system is really a time-saver, particularly with a busy schedule like this one.”
