Depeche Mode uses a wide range of beyerdynamic products on its world tour
British cult band Depeche Mode launched a world tour to celebrate its latest album, “Spirit”, in Stockholm on 5 May. In the first part of the tour, the band will be performing 34 shows in front of 1.5 million fans in 21 different European countries. The musicians will then continue their tour in North and South America.
In order to ensure that the unique Depeche Mode sound comes across as it should live in the various arenas throughout the world, sound engineer Antony King is placing his trust in a whole range of beyerdynamic products.
Vampires dance with the digital wireless system TG 1000 from beyerdynamic
Munich’s Deutsches Theater will be the venue for one of Germany’s most popular musicals from 5 October to 15 January 2017. In addition to twenty TG 1000 dual receivers, around forty TG 1000 beltpack transmitters with beyerdynamic TG L55c lavalier microphones are used in this stage entertainment production.
The complete system was used in the production at Berlin’s Theater Des Westens from July to September and proved itself in tough conditions. “There can hardly be any other environment that demands such a high degree of robustness and reliability from transmitters and microphones as the stage in the world of musicals. The technical equipment has to work flawlessly, even when tough physical acting is required of the performers”, explains sound technician Peter Winckler.
