Port Perry, Ontario (July 15, 2014)—For his recent Shut Up & Hold On tour, Toby Keith brought along an Adamson Energia system for his Canadian dates, provided by Halifax, Nova Scotia-based Tour Tech East. Nashville, TN-based Sound Image Nashville provided all the other sound equipment for the tour.
Tour Tech East hung left-right line arrays consisting of a dozen E15 enclosures with an underhang of three SpekTrix W boxes. Outfill coverage was provided by two E12 line arrays made up of eight enclosures each. A total of 24 E218 subwoofers provided low frequency support. Four were hung left and right with eight ground stacked below each array.
“Load in and out with the Adamson system was great,” said Stephen Doherty, systems tech for Tour Tech East. “Because we can preset all of the angles on the ground, the system is very efficient to fly, and the weight is a big advantage as well. It is very light in comparison to similar enclosures.”
The PA was powered by Lab.gruppen fP 6400 amplifiers with Dolby Lake DLP processing, also provided by Tour Tech East. All processing and amplification was located under the stage with the Pram wireless access point and control located at FOH.
