John Farnham ‘The Last Time’ with DiGiCo D5

John FarnhamOn Sunday June 15th, 2003 John Farnham chose to perform his last concert at Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne Park. This was John Farnham’s 86th show at Rod Laver Arena and celebrated his one millionth patron in the arena alone, a milestone that no other performer has ever achieved. The final performance of ‘The Last Time’ tour was an emotional farewell concert for a great Australian artist.
Jands Production Services provided the sound for the live audience and supplied the very latest in digital live mixing technology, ‘the DiGiCO D5’ for FOH, along with an L-ACOUSTICS V-DOSC System, powered by Crown MA5002VZ amplifiers with BSS controllers, and an audio crew of six. John Farnham’s FOH engineer, Grant Walsh, had specified the D5 for FOH and this was the first time an Australian artist had used the D5 in a concert setting.
Also used on the event by Metropolis Audio, in conjunction with another D5 console for the broadcast, was the DiGiCO DiGiTRACS 56 track hard disk recording system. This recording was used for the now released 5.1 DVD of the concert.
