The band’s longtime tour provider, Rat Sound, knew it needed to deploy a concert reinforcement system that could go mile for mile with the band, which is why it chose to carry an L-Acoustics K1/K2 rig for the outing.

The main stage PA was comprised of main L/R, side L/R, rear L/R, subwoofers… View this story
