October, 2008

PM5D Console Supports Metal Masters Tour.

BUENA PARK, Calif. — Headliner Judas Priest and Heaven and Hell embarked on tour together as part of the top metal concert attraction this summer, the Metal Masters Tour, which also included performances by Motorhead and Testament to delight of the metalheads everywhere.

The tour, produced by Live Nation, was Priest’s first set of U.S. dates in nearly three years, and kicked off the release of the band's new CD, 'Nostradamus.' The fifteen 'special engagements' began in Camden, NJ and ended in Las Vegas Nevada with a tour stop that also included Toronto, Ontario.

The Metal Masters Tour also marked the release of Heaven and Hell's new The Rules of Hell' CD, a musical collaboration featuring Black Sabbath members Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler along with former members Ronnie James Dio and Vinny Appice.

Both the monitor engineer for Heaven and Hell Judas Priest use Yamaha PM5D digital audio consoles. "I have found the desk to be very friendly to analog leviathans such as myself," states Doug Short, monitor engineer for Judas Priest at the tour’s stop at Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino in Connecticut. "The small footprint is handy as well."

"I love the PM5D console immensely," notes Heaven and Hell monitor engineer, Lorenzo Banda.
