South Africa - Gearhouse South Africa recently supplied the Kings of Leon tour. 72 Robin 600 LEDWash fixtures were purchased by Gearhouse to facilitate the growing demand for these fixtures for events such as this.
The concert was held at the Cape Town Stadium on 26 October and for the Johannesburg fans two days later, at The Soccer City Complex, FNB Stadium. A grandMA console was used for the event.
An enormous African thunderstorm the night before the Johannesburg concert certainly added a touch of apprehension and caused a four hour delay on the load in. However the Gearhouse team ensured the gig went ahead without a glitch.
