South Africa: Having just completed the 2014 Let the Night In European Tour, South African band Prime Circle are looking forward to play across home soil during December. Vincent van Niekerk, the band’s LD has been with the band for the past four and a half years and in July took ownership of an Avolites Tiger Touch 2.
“During my first three years I decided to work on as many different consoles as possible to learn as many as possible,” explained Vincent, pictured with DWR's Duncan Riley. “But by doing that you can only imagine the complications when you arrive at a venue and you have to do a huge show off Light Jockey or DMX creator without a wing desk.”
Since acquiring the Tiger Touch 2 Vincent says touring has become a breeze. “No matter what venue or what fixtures, the Tiger Touch 2 has all the personalities and all the versatility a touring desk needs. We’ve also started cueing all our AV content from the desk which makes the live performance that much stronger. When a black out needs to be cued I know exactly when it needs to happen so there's no chance of cues being lost via coms to the AV operator.”
Vincent ends, “The Tiger Touch 2 truly is a remarkable console and I couldn't be happier with its performance.”
