    With its emphasis on modern dance and its integrated video elements, a Sia show is as theatrical as it is musical. That’s certainly been the case on her “Nostalgic for the Present” excursion, the multiple award-winning Australian pop singer’s first arena concert outing. A foundational element on the tour is a pair of DiGiCo consoles: an SD5 loaded with DiGiCo’s new Stealth Core 2 at front of house, and an SD10 for monitors. “I picked up the SD5 right after… View this story

    For better or for worse, cinematic representations of roadies tend to fall short of reality, and that seems to be the consensus of critics and actual roadies of Showtime’s comedy-drama Roadies, which debuted earlier this year. However, the show is getting high marks on its efforts for the authenticity of the environment they work in, and a DiGiCo SD9 console played a major role in that achievement. Marking a return to music-themed scripts by creator Cameron Crowe, whose 2000 film… View this story

    Tulsa-born, Nashville-based Ben Rector has put out seven albums on his own indie label, Aptly Named Recordings, selling over 450,000 albums and four million singles in nearly a decade—a large accomplishment for an indie artist. Jake Hartsfield, Rector’s front of house engineer and production manager, has added a new tool in Rector’s road kit: a compact pair of DiGiCo SD9 digital consoles, used for front of house and monitors. Rector has been touring all year, and his schedule is still… View this story

    It is 50 years since England’s FIFA World Cup win of 1966. To mark the anniversary, the FA held a series of events culminating in a live stage show at the SSE Arena, Wembley on 30th July at 3pm, exactly 50 years to the minute since kick off on that historic day. Skan PA Hire provided the entire audio system, with four DiGiCo consoles deployed for front of house and monitor mix positions. The show, which brought together music, fashion… View this story

    Two years ago, a catchy little pop ditty titled “All About That Bass” hit the Internet and radio waves. Although some might have assumed a quick, one-hit-wonder-fueled-by-YouTube ride for writer and singer Meghan Trainor, the video for that song has amassed a staggering 1.6 billion YouTube views and Trainor now has six top 15 Billboard Hot 100 hits and a 2016 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Monitor mix engineer Tony Luna has been with her since her first tour… View this story

    With over four million tickets sold to concerts that have taken place in 35 countries, The Australian Pink Floyd Show has amazed millions of concertgoers with a replication of the classic UK band’s live show. Employing a collection of visual aids (including lasers, inflatables and 3D stereoscopic projection), the group’s live shows recreate the look, feel and sound of Pink Floyd’s later world tours. For over 120 shows this year, the touring ensemble has had DiGiCo SD consoles on tour… View this story

    The power of social media, combined with the fast picture taking ability of today’s smart phones, has overtaken DiGiCo’s plans to launch its latest product, the S31, later this year. “The intention was for the S31, which is currently in its final stages of development, to perform on some shows in the real world before we announced its arrival to market,” says DiGiCo managing director James Gordon. “But it seems to have really captured people’s imagination and once some pictures… View this story

    The first World Youth Day (WYD) was held in St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican by his holiness John Paul II in 1984 as a response to his invitation for an International Jubilee of youth on Palm Sunday. 300,000 young people from around the world gathered that first year and it has become the tradition that every Palm Sunday WYD is celebrated in a different city around the world.

    This year, Adele made a welcome return to the stage with 25, her first arena tour, which is now travelling round the US.

Front of house engineer Dave Bracey has been using DiGiCo consoles since the company first started manufacturing 14 years ago but is new to the Adele crew. Whilst Joe Campbell at monitors is new to the… View this story

    Once again evidenced by the fact that eight of last year’s top ten highest-grossing tours carried SD Series consoles for front of house, monitors or both, many of the world’s premier concert sound companies are reporting that DiGiCo desks are still their “first choice” for handling the audio needs of the most complex and challenging touring productions. According to Brent Dannen, VER executive director, Audio, whose company has had 14 SD7s, 19 SD10s, 12 SD9s, one SD11i, two S21s and… View this story
