BUENA PARK, Calif.⎯GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter John Legend recently performed for an audience of 5,500 at the Welsh-Ryan Arena on the campus of Northwestern University supported by Gand Concert Sound, providing the audio and SCS Productions, providing the lighting and staging. The event, produced by A&O Productions, was held to celebrate the inauguration of new Northwestern president, Morton Schapiro and also featured Northwestern-affiliated performers. It was the first time in four years that a concert had been held in the venue.

As part of the audio rig, Gand provided 12 NEXO CD18s, 10 GEO T4805s and two GEOT2815s per side for out fill. Eight GEO T4805s and a T2815 were used per side for mains, left and right; four NEXO PS8s were used as front fills. Since the band was on in-ears, three NEXO PS15s were used for stage monitors. A Yamaha PM5D-RH digital audio console performed front of house duties.

“Since the arena was set up for stadium seating on the sides, the side hangs where bigger than the mains,? states Gary Gand, President, Gand Concert Sound. “I used to go to concerts at NU when my wife was a student there and, acoustically, it was a typical nightmare athletics-type room. Bands like Mountain, Springsteen, Simple Minds, even the Dead, just got swallowed up in echo. Now that the NEXO Tangent Array has proven itself in thousands of shows, the venue has changed radically into a pretty nice-sounding, mid-sized room with great potential.?
