Raising awareness for the charity The Smile Train, five-piece indie-rockers Sound Driver are playing some unusual places: Sydney Harbor Bridge, Mount Kilimanjaro (breaking World Records), the Great Wall of China, Niagara Falls and Dubai’s Burj al Arab Hotel. To accommodate these “venues” for the Chasing Rainbows Tour, tour manager David Spillane spec’d gear that’s compact, lightweight and reliable, including Shure (PSM600 receivers and transmitters, and a UHF-R Series wireless system for lead singer Chad Marriott) and QSC (K8 active loudspeakers).

Record producer Danton Supple has been on hand to capture the band live at the Mount Kilimanjaro summit, and they’ve also been filmed by BAFTA Award–winning cameraman Mark McCauley, who has been editing his footage on location and providing uploads to the tour’s dedicated Website.

The Chasing Rainbows Tour was launched in October 2009 on the steps of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. It then took Sound Driver to Sydney in January, where a video shoot took place on the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the steps of the Opera House and Bondi Beach. After the climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro on February 22, 2010, the tour traveled to the Middle East, Asia and North America.

During the past 10 years, The Smile Train has provided more than 500,000 free surgeries for children and has helped in 77 of the world’s poorest countries.
