West End musical theatre star Elaine Paige recently completed her Oct/Nov Australian tour.
With shows in almost all states and a live DVD filmed in The State Theatre (Sydney), we had a busy schedule on this tour.
2 x Yamaha PM5D's were used for FOH & monitors as well as some extra outboard gear including Dbx 162S, BSS DPR901, Midas XL42 channel strip.
Her wireless mic of choice was a Shure UR system with Beta87 head.
A bunch of EV XW15 wedges, Shure & Sennheiser PSM's completed the monitor rig.
We used our Martin Audio W8LC Line Array as spec'd by her FOH engineer.
Lighting used an array of MAC700 Profiles, Martin TW1 wash, ETC profiles and 2 x Robert Juliat "Victor" follow spots and a 18m x 9m LED Star Curtain.
We also debuted our new Martin MAC301 LED wash lights to great effect.
Control was via our new Grand MA2 console with an extra Jands HOG1000 brought in for room lighting for the DVD shoot.
For the live DVD at the State Theatre we brought in and additional 48 x Par64 for room lighting, 12 x LED Par64 for wall washing and more Martin TW1 and MAC250 wash for highlighting the internal architecture.
