This book is for those who want to learn how to set up, operate and maintain sound and lighting equipment used for concert touring. The concert touring job hierarchy is described, followed by chapters on power and rigging which apply both to sound and lighting set-up and sections on sound and lighting equipment and set-up. The illustrations show the various pieces of equipment and proper stage set-up. While the books serves as a reference book for anyone involved with the performance of amplified music, the emphasis is less on the function of every piece of equipment than it is on how all the different pieces of equipment work together. It is directed towards those interested in becoming involved with concert touring production and some theatre art courses on sound and lighting for performance.

This new edition incorporates the continuing developments in concert sound and lighting systems maintaining the premise that the reader has had no previous experience. The practical how-to illustrations teach the reader about the equipment, and this thoroughly updated edition will include new equipment such as radio microphones, in-ear monitoring, digital audio products and digital lighting products. The author also discusses new venues outside the traditional concert touring environment and applies the skills and technology to such diverse events as product launches, theatrical arena spectaculars and outdoor stadium productions. In addition to an introductory section on touring concerts, there are sections on sound systems and lighting systems and an explanation of how all the parts fit together to create a professional, safe, efficient show.About the Author:
