Popular French singer Michel Sardou is the latest artist to tour with Meyer Sound’s LEO large-scale sound reinforcement system as he performs in France and Belgium.
Last summer’s Way Out West festival in Sweden was the site of LEO’s under-the-radar launch. FOH engineer Jean-Marc Hauser and long-time Sardou supplier DUSHOW opted for the LEO system following an impressive demo: “LEO delivers a bigger sound even at low levels,” said Hauser. “Enormous and precise low/mids and amazing vocals which are loud and clear are just a few of its characteristics. Coverage is consistent and my shows are benefitting from a great stereo image with every detail well represented.” For the Sardou tour, DUSHOW is carrying 24 LEO-M loudspeakers, 12 1100-LFC elements, eight MICA and six MINA line array loudspeakers, 12 MSL-4 loudspeakers, two HD-1 audio monitors, and one USW-1P subwoofer. Signal processing is handled by four Galileo Callisto systems and two Galileo 616 AES processors. “Collectively, the LEO package constitutes a masterpiece,” said DUSHOW’s general technical manager, Marc de Fouquières, “LEO really is the next generation touring system.” Hauser added: “I'm delighted to say that we have received many, many compliments during the Sardou tour. It is the most amazing PA that I have ever tried to tame.”



Sziget goes live with Meyer Sound LEO

Sziget isn't your average festival; this week-long annual spectacle began life 20 years ago as a low-key student affair and is now one of Europe's largest music events. At the audio helm this year was Meyer Sound's LEO - and it was quite the talking point.
