COLOGNE (VIP-NEWS) — High Lite Touring has become the first Eastern European rental company to supply the main PA system for an international tour – Red Hot Chili Peppers’ I’m With You tour.
High Lite is providing an L-ACOUSTICS K1 WST® line source system for the UK and European leg of the Chili Peppers’ world tour, which continues through Europe during December, having kicked off at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne in early October.
"The artist insisted on using a K1 system for the entire tour since it has a reputation for being one of the best sound systems in the world," says High Lite’s Borek Jirik. "Obviously shows on this level cannot compromise on the quality served to the fans. We are happy we were able to meet the criteria."
While it’s standard practice for Central and Eastern European rental companies to supply top range equipment for local shows, international one offs, joint ventures and festivals, opportunities are arising to participate on a wider scale.
"We very much hope that a choice of supplier from the Czech Republic for this level of tour will help to get local companies into the focus of the international touring business, and to become a part of the international live music industry," adds Jirik.
