“Take Me Downtown” is Lady Antebellum’s third headlining tour, taking the Grammy Award-winning trio across North America and into a wide range of venues, including casinos, civic centers and amphitheaters, both indoors and outside. It began in January in Peoria, Illinois and ran nearly nonstop through June, when the band began its summer state fair itinerary.

For the entire first half of the year, Lady A worked exclusively with touring sound provider Sound Image’s L-Acoustics K1 line array system. Sound Image’s Mike L. Adams, who handles the account, comments, “The K1 system is reliable, consistent and never lets us down. When we deploy this system, every night sounds incredible and we never get one of those late night calls. The peace of mind is invaluable.”

For most of the group’s performances, Sound Image flew left and right main PA arrays of 14 K1 plus four KARA downfills, each flanked by six flown K1-SB subs. Outfills were comprised of 12 KUDO per side, while four SB28 subs per side groundstacked below in cardioid configurations anchored the low end reinforcement. Four more KARA — two per side — were additionally deployed as stage frontfills.
