In May, Mexican rockers Mana launched a year-long world tour with shows planned in over 70 cities in the US, Latin America, and Europe. The tour’s first shows were at the San Diego Sports Arena and the Universal (Gibson) Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. The US leg of the tour will culminate at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Pro Color from Guadalajara is the production contractor for the tour, providing sound, lighting, and rigging. Pro Color is a sound and lighting rental company that supports Mana and other touring acts including Alejandro Fernandez and Alejandro Sanz.
Included in the equipment specified for the tour are four ProPower RPD power distribution racks, over 400 feet of ProSpan truss, and over 20,000 feet of ProPlex data and ProCable power cables.
Says Javier Barba, the principal of Pro Color states, “The ProPower distro racks are the best. They look great, have many useful features, and we have found them to be completely reliable. On the Mana tour, we use two on each side of the stage for audio and two for lighting. We particularly appreciate the Socapex LED status indicators, which allow us to instantly see which circuits are live and which are not. The quality of the ProSpan truss is remarkable. We use ProPlex and ProCable because in our experience they are the best data and six-circuit cables and seem to never wear out. Best of all, we get this equipment from TMB who have given us great, reliable support for many years. They completely understand the needs of a company touring in Mexico, USA, and around the world.”
