“Freidrehen”, “Gewinner”, “Keinen Zentimeter”, “Cello”: Erfurt singer-songwriter Clueso has been tearing up the German charts in recent years, scooping up a series of gold and platinum records in the process. His tours regularly sell out – including his latest Stadtrandlichter (“Lights of the Outskirts”) Tour 2014, which saw the singer on the road from 24 November to 28 December. For his stage appearances, Thomas Hübner (for that is the name in Clueso’s passport) puts his faith in environmentally-friendly technology.
Hamburg band Revolverheld conquered the German charts with songs like “Freunde bleiben” (Stay Friends) and “Mit Dir Chilln” (Chill With You); and in November they received the award for Best German Act at the MTV Europe Awards in Glasgow. During their successful Immer in Bewegung (Always in Motion) tour, the pop-rock group have been using wireless microphones from Sennheiser’s 2000 Series to help bring the earthy rock sound that characterises their atmospheric shows to life.
An acoustic guitar, a loop pedal, and the unique voice of British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran – that’s everything you need to draw in the crowds. Or rather: almost everything. An audience of more than 10,000 fans is dying to hear every note, even if they aren’t in the front row, and the linear sound reinforcement systems LEO and LYON from Meyer Sound make it possible. They are accompanying Ed on his live concert tour – from Manchester to Paris, Berlin to Prague, and Sydney to Auckland.
When Michael Bublé goes on tour, then his fans can expect great things. The singer and multiple Grammy winner, who became famous with songs like “Feeling so Good”, “Everything” and “It’s a Beautiful Day”, is so multifaceted that his stage technology has to be able to keep up. The technical equipment for his current “To be loved” world tour is from the TAIT company. Giant moveable LED displays, video screens and ingenious lighting set the stage for his performance. However, all this technology has to be set up and taken down before and after each performance. Today’s find shows you how all that works. Enjoy!
