Simple Plan Oz 2012

We recently completed Simple Plan's 2012 Australian tour. For this one we supplied a complete package including audio (W8LC Line Array, AVID Profile console), lighting (LC Panels, MAC301's, MAC101's, MAC700's, Grand MA), crew and production transport (45' pan). The dates went all the way to Darwin and were a great success and a fun time was had by all.


Jan / Feb 2012 sees us out touring with the recent X-Factor winner Reece Mastin.

Shows in NSW, QLD, VIC, ACT + flyaway gigs in WA and TAS.

Full houses and screaming girls are the order of the day on this tour, with girls camped out at the venue and hotel waiting to get a glimpse of Reece.

On the audio front Phil "Kez" Kesby is taking full advantage of our Martin Audio W8LC Line Array with WS218X subs to get over the crowd screaming. He's using one of our Digidesign Profile consoles at FOH.

Simple Plan

For their recent Australian tour Simple Plan chose Entertainment Installations for lighting for their 2 East Coast shows - Tivoli (Brisbane) and Enmore Theatre (Sydney) 

We've worked with their LD before with Simple Plan and other acts and he was happy to have us back on-board. 

In these days of LED fixtures it was interesting that Jay (LD) went for a show without any LED fixtures. 

However, it looked great and he knows the songs so well, his programming and cues were spot-on. 

The rig used:
