Roger Hodgson in Argentina with D.A.S.
26 July 2012
Argentina - Roger Hodgson, one of the founding members and voice of Supertramp, recently completed the first leg of his Breakfast in America Tour 2012 in South America. A total of 16 concerts were offered across the continent, and in Rosario, Argentina, where Hodgson played to a full-house at the city's Salón Metropolitano, D.A.S. Aero Series 2 sound systems provided sound for the event.
Local company Marti Audio, with Ariel Marti at the helm, rolled out the big guns for the concert. A comprehensive D.A.S. sound system was set up, which included Aero Series 2 line arrays, specifically 12 units of the large D.A.S. Aero 50 for the PA, set up in two arrays of six units each on either side of the stage in a traditional left-right configuration.
Another 12 units of the powerful D.A.S. LX-218R subwoofers were brought in to reinforce the low frequencies at the concert. The units were ground stacked on opposite ends in front of the stage in two groups of six units each. To guarantee proper sound coverage for the first rows of the audience, a front-fill comprised of eight powered D.A.S. Aero 8A systems were used.
