SACRAMENTO, CA – Following a three-month North American arena tour earlier this year, Kid Rock is now out on his second U.S. sweep in support of his latest album,Born Free. Joined by Sheryl Crow for most of the dates, which run into September, Rock and his entourage are being heard via L-Acoustics’ K1 stadium line source system.
Sound Image (Escondido, CA) is supplying the tour’s concert sound system, which features left and right arrays of 12 K1 plus three dV-DOSC down, each flanked by an adjacent subwoofer hang of eight K1-SB. Additional arrays comprised of six KUDO per side address the extreme left and right seating areas, while four SB28 per side positioned below serve as front-fill subs for the space not covered by the K1-SB hangs.
“My first real outing with K1 was back in mid-January,” said Steve Cross, who has served as Kid Rock’s FOH engineer for the past four years. “It was the very first day of Kid Rock’s Born Free tour and he was celebrating his 40th birthday with a huge stadium show at the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field in his hometown. Not only did we fly more boxes than any other show on the tour so far, but there were at least 15 special guests that showed up to perform with him. So the pressure was certainly on that evening, but Sound Image came out strong and the K1 system sounded absolutely spectacular.”
