Alanis Morissette tours with Outline

Canadian-born singer songwriter and actress Alanis Morissette recently embarked on a short summer tour in a support of her forthcoming album Havoc and Bright Lights with an Outline GTO system in tow.

The 2012 tour dates included shows in the UK and France, for which production provider Britannia Row Productions deployed a substantial Outline GTO system. The shows were some of the first in Europe to showcase two brand new Outline designs, specifically the GTO-SUB low frequency element designed specifically for the GTO system, and the GTO-DF downfill 120-degree element. The production also carried six Outline Mantas 120 degree down fill elements and six Outline Butterfly CDH-483 hi-packs, and everything was powered by Outline T-11 amplifiers.

Maurizio Gennari, FOH engineer, said: “I’ve used Outline Butterfly in the past and I was hoping to try the GTO at some point. Finally an opportunity came with Britannia Row’s Bryan Grant suggested I take the system to the UK and French dates of the tour. I really liked the system clarity in the mid-hi range and also used new subs, which Dave Compton and I tried in different configurations – they were very powerful and precise. I will be happy to use the system again in the future.”

Bryan Grant, Britannia Row Productions, added: “Our systems tech on the tour reported great results with the GTO, which really didn’t surprise me because it’s one of the most natural-sounding systems out there at the moment.”
