B.A.L.S. Deploys JBL VerTec For Rod Stewart Stadium Show In Buenos Aires

jbl_rodstewart2.jpgDemonstrating the global acceptance, premium sound and maximum output capabilities of JBL Professional VERTEC® line arrays, Buenos Aires Live Show (B.A.L.S.) deployed a large VERTEC system for Rod Stewart’s recent concert at Velez Sarsfield Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The show was part of Rod Stewart’s current world tour supporting his latest release, “Still The Same…Great Rock Classics of our Time.?

The April 11th concert at Velez Sarsfield Stadium drew a sell-out crowd of 40,000 people. To meet Stewart’s concert rider specifications, B.A.L.S. used a total of 52 VERTEC line array enclosures. The main left/right arrays featured 14 VT4889-1 full-size line array elements per side, with 12 VT4889-1 elements per side for out fill arrays. For additional low-frequency output, B.A.L.S. used both stacked and flown subwoofers—a total of 32 enclosures—to complement the full-range VERTEC system. JBL’s new VERTEC V4 DSP presets were used.

JBL’s new VT4889-1 full-size line array loudspeaker offers all of the performance and high-output advantages of the original VT4889, in a more affordable enclosure constructed from JBL’s exclusive PlyMax® engineered-wood material. It is acoustically and mechanically compatible with JBL’s VT4889 full-size line array loudspeaker.

“The system provided very clear sound, with a good, punchy presence,” noted Federico Sainz, Chief Engineer for B.A.L.S. “Both of Rod Stewart’s engineers, the FOH mixer and the system engineer, were very satisfied. I think the VERTEC rig gave us a great performance. We had good intelligibility all the way to the very last rows of the stadium seating [more than 100 meters from the stage]. We did have signal-delayed arrays set up in the rear as requested by the touring production, but those ended up being used at only 50 percent of the anticipated level.”

David Scheirman, Vice President, Tour Sound for JBL Professional, notes that B.A.L.S. has proven its ability to serve the most high-profile and demanding international touring acts. “Stadium rock shows can place great demands on a concert sound team, and Buenos Aires Live Show has established both the audio system inventory and the technical processes and practices needed to succeed in this environment.”
