GERMANY: CAMCO and NEXO equipment accompanied Kaiser Chiefs' historic show at Munich's Olympic Stadium, reports David Davies. The Leeds-based band recently became the first group to play a show under the celebrated roof construction of Munich's Olympic Stadium. Audio for the historic concert - part of T-Mobile's series of Street Gigs - was provided by Lleyendecker GmbH.

Fronted by vocalist Ricky Wilson (pictured), Kaiser Chiefs is currently touring in support of third studio album Off With Their Heads.

As with the other shows in the Street Gigs series, Lleyendecker GmbH drew on its extensive inventory of NEXO line array equipment for the Kaiser Chiefs concert. In addition to using its entire complement of GEO D modules (18 in total), the company also deployed NEXO S1230s, PS15s and RS15s.

The FOH system was powered by CAMCO Vortex amplifiers, used in conjunction with NEXO NX242 controllers.
