Innovative was all abuzz when the 2Day FM Rooftop Party with Katy Perry was confirmed!
We had the pleasure of providing not ONE but FOUR individual band specs for the special guests which included; Scarlett Belle, Brian McFadden, Vanessa Amorosi and the sexy sassy sensational Katy Perry!
With a ridiculously tight stage, next to no change-over time and a complete FOH/Monitor console swap (and back again!), a welcome challenge was presented. Ben Shannon, Innovative’s resident audio extraordinaire mixed 3 of the bands (including Katy Perry!!!) on our Allen and Heath iLive T112 console, while monitor duties were taken care of by Greg Kershaw on a Digidesign Profile. All the band change-overs were silky smooth and happened with no issues thanks to the wonderful system and cable design by the boys and with Noel Denchfield on stage…it was a sure thing!
Mark Hammer was the Lighting Director for the show and this was his first experience with a GrandMA2. After a little bit of convincing (and persuasion) from Jeremy Koch (lighting system tech and technical manager for the job), Mark felt more than at home on the new version of an industry great. He was very pleased to be using the MA2 and loved the new features and interface. Under control from the GrandMA2 were Martin TW1s, StageBar 54Ls, HoneyComb 36s and JARAGs. The video is testament to how great the lighting was!
Final comments from 2Day FM production crew…BEST ROOFTOP PARTY YET!
