The 37 date tour, which began in November and runs through the end of February, celebrates the four-decade anniversary of the album’s release and marks the band’s first major North American tour in four years.

    The new Manna Methodist Church in Bundang New City, South Korea, has a seating capacity of 4,000, with around 10,000 worshippers attending each week.

The church consulted DiGiCo’s South Korean distributor Soundus Corporation, who supplied and installed an SD7 console at Front of House,… View this post
