The Who 2009

Having recently purchased the D & B J system JAS was contacted by the Who to supply the system for their Australian tour. Paul Ramsay their FOH operator was keen to use the system if it was available as they had been using it worldwide. The tour consisted of arenas and some outdoor shows.

The system also required 3 x Digico digital consoles and was the first, in Australia, to use the SD7.

The SD7 was doing the FOH duties and the 2 x D5 consoles were on monitors. All the consoles were running with dual racks (112chls) and we also supplied a recording system.

The schedule also meant JAS needed to supply a 2nd L-Acoustics VDosc system due to an overnight run back to the Melbourne Grand Prix. At the Grand Prix the Who played to a crowd estimated at 40,000.

The tour also featured the Counting Crows as support.
