Scorpions has been touring Europe throughout 2006 in support of a recently released live concert DVD (One Night in Vienna). The band’s July 23 outdoor show at Tsirium Stadium in Limassol, Cyprus, was handled by rental firm MKG Touring Technologies, who brought out its JBL VerTec VT4888 mid-size line array system.

That audio system comprised 24 VT4888 line array elements, deployed in two main columns of 12 enclosures each, with 16 supporting full-size 2x 18-inch subwoofers. All loudspeakers were powered by Crown MA3600VZ and MA5002VZ amplifiers. Signal processing included three BSS FDS366 loudspeaker system controllers.

“MKG’s JBL VerTec system has a lot of headroom,” says Achim Schulze, veteran front-of-house sound mixer for Scorpions. “We will rock Cyprus again with this system.”

Scorpions was presented to an 8,000-person audience of local residents and vacationers by Moonlight Productions, a new company established to plan and organize concerts and artistic performances in Cyprus.

"Live concerts are an ideal way for tourist destination locations to offer entertainment events for area visitors,” says David Scheirman, VP, tour sound for JBL Professional. “MKG’s success in Cyprus with acts as diverse as the pristine operatic style of Pavarotti and seriously hard rock acts like The Scorpions demonstrates the flexible capabilities of both JBL loudspeaker products and MKG’s professional approach to meeting production needs of international touring acts.”
