L-Acoustics’ K2 system provided scalability and sound on John Legend’s recent European tour.
The tour played at venues from the 3,500-seater Mehr Theatre in Hamburg to London’s 20,000 capacity O2 Arena.
UK rental company BCS Audio deployed main hangs of 14 K1 with 4 K2 downfills, inverse stereo out hangs of 14 K2 and a flown centre hang of 6 Kara.
“As is so often the case, the client specified an LAcoustics system,” explained BCS owner David Shepherd. “Its systems are rider-friendly simply because they make great sounding products and consistently deliver the high quality of sound the artists want. And we want to provide our clients with that high quality – you always know what you’re going to get with L-Acoustics.”
L-Acoustics’ K1-SB were flown behind each of the main arrays, with additional KS28 in front of the stage in an arc sub configuration to provide smooth low end coverage throughout the venues.
The entire system was driven with AVB-ready LA12X amplifier controllers. “The rig performed very well throughout the tour,” continued David. “It’s easy to fly, safe and quick to work with and provides us with the scalability we needed for the varying venue sizes. We’ve worked a lot with John Legend over the last few years. Everyone is always happy with what we do and the L‑Acoustics systems we provide. This tour was no exception.”
