The L-ACOUSTICS system consists of 24 K1 boxes with eight K1-SB subs, 36 V-DOSC and 12 dV-DOSC cabinets,18 SB28 subs and a stage monitor system of 115XT HiQs, all driven by LA amplified controllers in 14 LA-RAKs. Such a versatile system means that the configuration can change depending on the requirements of the venues hosting the tour's 35 concerts.
For example, at the Olympia Halle in Munich, 12 K1s and four K1-SBs were flown per side, with three dV-DOSCs beneath each for downfill. The system also included two hangs of six SB28s, an additional six SB28s as ground subs, a side hang of eight V-DOSC and three dV-DOSC, and eight KIVAs as near fill.
"I am impressed by the simplicity of the K1 rigging which greatly simplifies the system setup -- 15 minutes to rig a cluster! And, of course, the sound is a real innovation," says Sirius crew chief and system engineer Klaus "Bob" Bolender.
Supertramp founder, singer and keyboard player Rick Davies, together with longtime band members, sax and clarinet player John Anthony Helliwell and drummer Bob Siebenberg, are joined on the tour by singer, guitarist and percussionist Jesse Siebenberg, bass player Cliff Hugo, guitarist Carl Verheyen and trumpeter Lee Thornburg.
