Flo Rida and his guests from the Phooson audience monitored via L-ACOUSTICS 115XT HiQ wedges
The month kicked off with a bang as PCS shook Phoenix's U.S. Airways Center on December 2 for Phooson 2011, an annual pop music festival hosted by KRQ/KISS FM's Johnjay & Rich and featuring Selena Gomez, Flo Rida, OneRepublic and Gym Class Heroes, among other acts. PCS supplied a concert sound system for the event comprised of 30 V-DOSC, 30 dV-DOSC and 12 SB28 subs. Eight 115XT HiQ coaxial wedges provided stage monitoring, while two ARCS paired with two SB series subs served as sidefills.

"Phooson was a high energy show and required a sound system that could truly back it up," Stern notes. "L-ACOUSTICS products made the show special because they really brought out the best in all of the artists and gave the fans the concert experience that they were hoping for and more."
Alice Cooper's eleventh annual "Christmas Pudding" was another high-profile event to utilize PCS' L-ACOUSTICS gear. Held at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix on December 17, the original shock rocker and his special guests Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Brian "Head" Welch (Korn), The Tubes, Bruce Kulick (Kiss), John Corabi (Motley Crue, Union), Kip Winger (Winger) and Orianthi rocked the crowd to benefit Cooper's charity, the Solid Rock Foundation. The house system for the evening consisted of 24 V-DOSC, 12 dV-DOSC and 16 SB28 subs, while the stage featured ten 115XT HiQ wedges, four ARCS and four SB series subs.

"Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding was an all out rock show this year," adds Stern. "With heavy metal hitters like Alice Cooper, Rob Halford and Brian 'Head' Welch, we needed a system that would be able to handle the raw power of those acts and make them sound larger than life. L-ACOUSTICS delivered with its high quality, crystal-clear monitors, cabinets and subs. It would not have been anywhere near as successful and enjoyable without them."
