SUPERTRAMP ON AN SD8
Well, not just Supertramp. Roger Hodgson is touring worldwide for audiences keen to hear a blend of his solo material and the classics that he recorded with his former band, Supertramp which, of course, he co-founded. As you can see from the pictures he plays some impressive venues and often employs a more intimate, sometimes in-the-round stage setup. Another aspect of Hodgson’s tours is that audience sizes vary hugely, playing his own shows, private events, festivals – the entire range. Audiences can differ literally from 100 up to 100,000 people. The band uses a Pivitec personal monitoring system controlled from FOH (it can also be individually controlled via iOS apps on stage) and to better accommodate the extra outputs this required, Front of House engineer Howard Heckers has switched to a DiGiCo SD8 console. Heckers also carries a 150 metre Optocore in case they stick him at the back of the room. Sound all right? Bloody well right!
