to the Hollywood Bowl

How did they control the sound for the most anticipated concert of the 2006 season?

With Tablet PCs

In the years I have been going to the Bowl, I've never seen so much equipment or so many people getting ready for a show at the Bowl.  There is no question that those holding tickets for the 3 Dark Side of the Moon shows that Roger Waters did at the Hollywood Bowl couldn't wait for the show to begin.  But what was different, is that the people inside the Bowl seemed to have caught some of the fever that is surrounding this show.

The aura of anticipation and excitement in the Bowl was running high as equipment crews and sound engineers prepared for the most anticipated concert of the 2006 season.  Roger Waters was performing Dark Side of the Moon at the Hollywood Bowl, on October 5th, 7th and 8th 2006.

Truckloads full of equipment, a giant crane, the famous Pink Floyd Prism, a flying pig, shooting flames, state of the art pyrotechnics and the Tablet PC all played their parts in this history making event.
