Athlete runs with evolution
2 June 2005
World Athlete are set for a massive year of touring with concerts around the world and numerous festival gigs. For these, they will be using Sennheiser evolution mics and in-ear monitoring. During April Athlete headlined a sell-out three-week European tour and fitted in a Radio One Big Weekend before embarking on a full 22-date US tour in May and June. Festivals this year will include Germany's Hurricane and Southside, T4 on the Beach, Glastonbury, Denmark Roskilde, Belgium Rock Werchter, Ireland Oxygen, and Scotland T In The Park.
FOH engineer Suneil Pusari comments: "It seems to me the new range of Sennheiser microphones are the most natural and open sounding range they have produced to date. From their vocal mics, to guitar mics, condensers and bass drum mics they all possess the same characteristics - a very smooth and true frequency response with a slightly sparkly high-end response."
Monitor Engineer, Rabbit (Pete), adds: "Athlete have been using in-ear monitoring since early in their career. Introducing them to the Sennheiser e300 G2s has vastly improved their on-stage experience. The radio performance, and specifically the new scan function, ensures that any interference issues can be quickly, and effectively dealt with.
During the festival season Athlete will also be supporting U2 for three stadium concerts at Manchester, Twickenham and Amsterdam Ajax, while the band has confirmed a further twelve UK dates for October and November.
