Setting off in Dublin and ending in Hamburg, the 21-date tour made the rounds of Europe’s arenas, covering hits from Santana’s four-decade career.
“The L-Acoustics K1 system has met and exceeded all of my expectations,” says Robert Mailman, Santana’s front-of-house engineer. “The system’s unique features, combined with excellent tour support from the staff at Satis&Fy, have made the Santana 2010 European leg a great success.”
The main system consisted of 14 K1 large format line source cabinets and three dV-Dosc as downfill per side, with six K1-SB low frequency extensions flown beside both arrays. The system was driven by LA-RAKs housing L-Acoustics LA8 amplified controllers. Satis&Fy is also using an L-Acoustics K1/Kudo system for Joe Cocker’s current Hard Knocks tour, which continues into December.
