provider Britannia Row Productions deployed a substantial Outline GTO
Canadian-born singer songwriter and actress Alanis Morissette recently embarked on a short summer tour in support of her forthcoming album ‘Havoc And Bright Lights’ which is due for release in August.
Best-known for her 1995 ‘Jagged Little Pill’ album which has sold more than 33 million copies globally, Morissette has garnered numerous awards including 16 Junos and 7 Grammies as well as being nominated for two Golden Globes and an Oscar. Subsequent album releases have taken her global sales to over 60 million, while a successful acting career on stage, film and television has raised her profile yet further.
Her 2012 dates, which were interspersed with various festival appearances, included shows in the UK and France at which production provider Britannia Row Productions deployed a substantial Outline GTO system. These shows were also some of the first in Europe to showcase two brand new Outline designs, specifically the GTO-SUB low frequency element designed specifically for the GTO system, and the GTO-DF downfill 120-degree element.
The production also carried six Outline Mantas 120° downfill elements and six Outline Butterfly CDH-483 hi-packs, all used variously as infills depending on the venue, and everything was powered by Outline T-11 amplifiers.
FOH engineer Maurizio Gennari said, "I've used Outline Butterfly in the past and I was hoping to try the GTO at some point. Finally an opportunity came when Britannia Row’s Bryan Grant suggested I take the system for the UK and French dates of the tour. I really liked the system clarity in the mid-hi range and also the new subs, which Dave Compton and I tried in different configurations - they were very powerful and precise. I will be happy to use the system again in the future".
Britannia Row Productions MD Bryan Grant said, "Our systems tech on the tour reported great results with the GTO, which really didn't surprise me because it's one of the most natural-sounding systems out there at the moment".
