Metallica Tours Europe with Meyer Sound

FOH Staff • International News • July 18, 2007

LONDON — Legendary metal band Metallica embarked on a series of European shows at the end of June for their “Sick of the Studio '07” tour. For its concert dates the band is carrying a Meyer Sound system built around the MILO high-power curvilinear array loudspeaker, 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofer, and the new MJF-212A high-power stage monitor. A Galileo loudspeaker management system provides system processing and drive. Taylor, Mich.-based Thunder Audio is providing the sound system, with local support from Westfalen Sound of Emsdetten, Germany, and AVAB CAC from Oslo, Norway. 

"Thunder’s used MILO on a number major tours, so we know we can expect loud, clean sound from MILO for every performance anywhere in the world,” says Thunder Audio Vice President Paul Owen, also the band's monitor engineer.

Metallica used Meyer Sound equipment during the band’s 2006 "Escape from the Studio Tour" dates in Estonia and Holland. Earlier this year the band upgraded their Northern California rehearsal studio with Meyer Sound M'elodie ultracompact high-power curvilinear array loudspeakers and a 600-HP compact high-power subwoofer, and replaced their old monitors with new MJF-212A monitors, which also are being used on tour in Europe.
The tour includes stops in the U.K., Spain, Sweden, Norway, and lands in the historic Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow for the final show on July 18, where Metallica will play for an anticipated audience of more than 75,000.
