Coldplay 2016 Australian tour

Coldplay tour 2016 5

JPJ Audio supplied Coldplay with a massive d&b system for their four stadium shows in Australia and for their Mount Smart Stadium show in New Zealand.

JPJ has a great relationship with the Coldplay production team and it was a pleasure to be asked again to supply audio for their tour. Dan Green pulled an amazing sounding show out front with the system in full array mode. A big thanks to, Tony Smith and Nick Mooney the chiefs of CP audio and the entire Wigwam crew for making it a seamless show for us. Looking forward to the next one.

The local JPJ crew worked around the clock to get the system ready in 4 days and a big thank you for the effort. A great result for JPJ and the Coldplay tour.

The System

It was the largest D&B “J” system yet to be seen on our shores. With 176 x J8/12 boxes and 60 subs, a mix of J-sub and Infra. We also used some Q’s for some front lip fill.

The system design also incorporated array processing to cover entire stadium, which required over 120 x D80 amplifiers! Wigwam supplied the touring consoles and infrastructure and we supplied the entire speaker system with all the opening act kits required. There were also some ring delay systems for the Etihad and Alliance shows. A mad amount of speakers.
