Imagine Dragons, which has gone from playing basements and dive bars to touring major arenas on multiple continents within a few short years, embarked on the Evolve world tour, their biggest yet, in support of their June 2017 release of the album by the same name, After the extensive opening trek across North America in late 2017, the tour has found the Las Vegas-based foursome performing 35 dates across three additional continents in 2018, starting with Malaysia’s Malawati Stadium on Jan. 6 and continuing with more shows in Asia, Europe, South America and back to Europe through Aug. 31, 2018.

• January 17, 2018

The 2018 NAMM Show returns — as usual — to the Anaheim Convention Center this month, from January 25 to 28. That part is perhaps familiar, but this time around, it’s going to be a whole new NAMM event. Often phrases like “new and improved” are simply misused marketing tools to denote fewer crackers in a slightly smaller, “more convenient” box. However, this is hardly the case with NAMM 2018, which truly will be expanded, and actually improved with additional exhibit space, more educational opportunities and an expanded focus on the pro audio, lighting, sound reinforcement and event production community.

Before I get started, I should confess that I have been a fan of Audix gear since day one, especially its popular OM- and D-Series microphones. These have always yielded solid, dependable and great sounding results, making them a real favorite in my book. That said, I have no experience with the company’s wireless mics, making this outing with the new Performance Series RF systems a venture into some new territory, and I was anxious to check these out first-hand.
