The latest leg’s 17 dates, which marked the first time that Pearl Jam had traversed the US since October 2014’s domestic sweep, typically featured a… View this post

    The veteran French rock band Les Insus and Danish pop singer Christopher have a common denominator: the two diverse European acts have each relied on Meyer Sound LEO family systems for their recent tours. A hard-driving rock quartet formed by members of the group Telephone, Les Insus is touring major arenas throughout France with its LEO Family rig throughout the year. “I was able to choose any system I wanted for this tour, and LEO was an obvious choice,” says… View this post
