Robbie Williams commenced his European ‘Take the Crown Tour’ on Friday 14th June 2013 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. It was Robbie’s first solo tour for 7 years, which featured his good friend Olly Murs as special guest. The 26-date stadium tour kicked off in Dublin and culminated in Estonia just over two months later on 25th August 2013. Robbie performed shows in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Croatia and Norway along the way. Our crew on the tour were: Josh Lloyd, Pete McGlynn, Adam Smith, Paul Gardiner, Nico Royon, Craig Gordon, Andrew Andreou, Laurie Fradley, Cesar Lopez, James Covill and Craig Ross.
It was the long awaited tour for the many Robbie fans who packed the stadiums each show!
The loudspeaker stadium spec that we provided for Robbie's tour was: 64 x L-Acoustics K1, 32 x L-Acoustics K1SB's, 48 x L-Acoustics SB28, 24 x L-Acoustics V-Dosc, 240 x L-Acoustics Kudo, 24 x L-Acoustics Kara, 150 x L-Acoustics LA-8 amplifiers.
The speaker count used was stadium-dependent and some of it was split for an ‘A’ Rig & ‘B’ Rig’ s to meet tour logistics. We provided gold grills on the main system to match the video screen backdrop. 24 Lake LM26 / 44 controllers, 2 Yamaha DME Digital Mix Engines and a Britannia Row matrix, custom made for the tour were being used for zonal control. Two Avid Profile consoles were used for the front-of-house mix and a Digico SD7 and Digico SD8 were used on monitors.
All singers and musicians were on Sennheiser IEM's. There were no wedge monitors on the tour. Robbie and the backing vocalists were on Sennheiser 5200 radio microphones with 5235 capsules and at times in the show used DPA 4088's and 4099's
