After a break of more than ten years, Shania Twain is back on tour. The Rock This Country tour is coming to 59 towns and cities in Canada and the USA. Shania can still fill the giant big ticket arenas with her fans, and its a chance for both to say goodbye. Joining them are the Meyer Sound LEO linear array loudspeaker family – designed for the big jobs.
Shania’s Front of House Engineer Chooses LEO
Twain’s long-time FOH engineer Nigel Green picked out the LEO system: "One of the difficult things for me, coming out of the studio world, was that a lot of PAs had an identifiable 'horn' sound with mid-range coloration. With LEO I get a much flatter, cleaner, and less coloured sound, and it's more musical as well."
Besides which, the Canadian singer is always on the move during her concerts – through the audience, and through the air. “When Shania flies on her saddle right in front of the arrays, we run a separate voice matrix through the Galileo Callisto processors which allows us to EQ every box individually as she passes in front of it – very difficult to do without a self-powered system."
Main arrays: 14 LEO-M each, and four LYON-W wide-coverage line array loudspeakers as well 24 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements
Mid-side-arrays: eight LEO-M each and six LYON-M main line array loudspeakers
Rear arrays: 12 LYON-W loudspeakers each, and eight MINA line array loudspeakers
Front Fill: eight MINA line array loudspeakers
Rear Fill: two UPA-1P loudspeakers
System command and control: a Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system with ten Galileo Callisto 616 and two Galileo Callisto 616 AES array processors
Meyer Sound Systems are no novelty for Shania Twain. Her team used them for her Still The One residency in Las Vegas between 2012 and 2014 – more than 100 shows.
