Royal Variety Show 2016

Royal Variety Show 2016

Like the Hyundai Mercury Prize, this year's Royal Variety Performance found itself at a new location of the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo.

RVP is a big show to get into a relatively shallow stage but designer Peter Bingeman set the orchestra in front of stage on either side of a central thrust.

This caused the obvious issues with the house PA, now being behind the orchestra so caused us to remove the house PA and re hang our own in a new position that gave production a clear view of the entire pros arch which they were projecting onto and also gave us the necessary headroom, while hanging just over the front of the orchestra.

With 3 x SD7's and 192 ways of active splits it's never going to be a simple show but happy to say that our first class team provided another excellent show. As ever there was a fairly large RF count as well with over 70 radio mics and 24 ways fo IEMs.

Guest this year included, Robbie, Lady Gaga, Emelie Sande, Barry Gibb, Gary Barlow , DNCE & ABC.

Here's looking forward to 2017's show.
