ESCONDIDO, California -- Following a three-month North American arena tour earlier this year, Kid Rock is now out on his second US sweep in support of his latest album, Born Free. Joined by Sheryl Crow for most of the dates, which run into September, Rock and his entourage are also touring with another stellar performer: L-ACOUSTICS' K1 stadium line source system.

"For me, the thing I most appreciate about K1 is that everything sounds extremely natural coming through it. If I put a vocal into a system and know that it sounds proper coming out of the console, I should expect it to sound natural coming out of the loudspeakers -- not aggressive or obviously amplified. A good mix is not determined by its volume or looking the right way on an RTA. It's about accurately sharing what's happening on stage and K1 does that very well. Even without the subs turned on, the mains reproduce such beautifully full-range, natural-sounding music. They're a pleasure to work on."
