PALMETTO, FL — Feld Entertainment, the producers of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus productions, announced in March 2015 that it would be phasing out the use of live elephants in its productions by 2018. Now, as it turns out, the circus productions themselves will cease. The company says the loss of its elephant acts led to a dramatic drop in ticket sales and that, along with rising costs and battles with animal activists, led to the decision to shut down after 146 years of producing “The Greatest Show on Earth.” The last shows will take place in May.

ALLEROED, DENMARK – For French artist Jeanne Added's first pop tour, sound engineer Gilles Olivesi chose DPA Microphones - specifically the d:facto - to reflect the power and emotion of her voice. Olivesi was looking for a "very flat microphone that wouldn't try to enhance anything in her voice," he says, adding that the d:facto "keeps her voice sounding natural." Added's tour continues through the end of 2017.
