Roger Hodgson Rosario
D.A.S. Aero Series 2 and Marti Audio with Roger Hodgson in Argentina
Roger Hodgson, one of the founding members and voice of the legendary English band Supertramp, recently completed the first leg of his "Breakfast in America Tour 2012" in South America. A total of 16 concerts were offered across the continent, and in Rosario, Argentina, where Hodgson played to a full-house at the city’s Salón Metropolitano, D.A.S. Aero Series 2 sound systems provided top quality sound for the event.
Local company Marti Audio, with Ariel Marti at the helm, rolled out the big guns for the concert. A comprehensive D.A.S. sound system was set up, which included Aero Series 2 line arrays, specifically 12 units of the large D.A.S. Aero 50 for the PA, set up in two arrays of six units each on either side of the stage in a traditional left-right configuration.
Another 12 units of the powerful D.A.S. LX-218R subwoofers were brought in to reinforce the low frequencies at the concert. The units were ground stacked on opposite ends in front of the stage in two groups of six units each.
To guarantee proper sound coverage for the first rows of the audience, a front-fill comprised of eight powered D.A.S. Aero 8A systems were used.
The flawless sound quality gave concert goers the chance to appreciate the vocal nuances of Hodgson and the talent of his band. Fans were delighted to hear Hodgson’s new songs along with Supertramp’s biggest hits, including "The Logical Song", "Give a Little Bit", and "Dreamer". and Marti Audio’s experience in setting up sound systems at this same venue proved invaluable for the concert´s success.
