FF NA Tour

Having completed a successful European tour in March/April, Franz Ferdinand monitor engineer Tom Howat asked for an iLive 112 modular surface and iDR10 MixRack for the North American leg of the tour which includes two shows in Mexico [Sports Palace, Mexico City 3rd May, and Banamex Auditorium, Monterrey 4th May].

Supporting on the US shows was Cate le Bon, and each day the venue’s house engineers took to the iLive to do monitors for the opening act after a brief introduction from Tom.
