Rod Stewart 1979

The “Blondes ‘Ave More Fun Tour” was Rod Stewart’s second trip to Australia. For the outdoor shows the sound system was stacked on three levels and was powered by Jands J600S amplifiers.

As in 1977, Patrick Woodroffe designed and operated the lighting which included PAR 64s, Altman Beamlights and Lekos along with a quantity of Arri 2K Blondies for audience lighting. The set featured all-white stage equipment and curtains.

    Hi Guys,

    My name is Denis Spencer and I Directed the Blondes Have More Fun tour from Sydney Showgrounds on Feb 12 1979 for Network 10. A long shot I know but during a bad storm my copy of this TV Special was damaged. I am wondering if any one @JPJ has a copy of the edited version that went to air.
    Best — Denis Spencer

    Love the pictures, but what are those 2×12 rear loaded mid folded horns called? I have been trying for years to find a make and model of those.
