Sir Tom Jones Rocked Muscat with Outline Butterfly
Production was provided by the Muscat-based Talentz Centre LLC, the largest production operation in Oman
Sir Tom Jones, the legendary superstar with over 100 million record sales to his credit, recently performed live at Shangri-La's Barr al Jissah Resort & Spa, as part of his world tour.
The concert was held at the resort's amphitheater, with an audience of more than 3,000 people. Having last performed there three years ago, Tom requested a return. Aged 73, the legendary performer sang his classics including "It's Not Unusual", "Delilah", "Kiss", "What's New Pussycat", all aiming to rock the local and international expatriate audience.
Production was provided by the Muscat-based Talentz Centre LLC, the largest production operation in Oman and whose expertise in large-scale events takes them all over the region, including the UAE. The company has invested significantly in Outline Butterfly systems with the MD, Baltazar Fernandes, quoting the products' consistency, quality and flexibility as key factors in his company's ability to handle visiting international acts.
The company deployed their compact Outline Butterfly system comprising of twelve cabinets per-side flown as the main L&R system plus four Outline Mantas enclosures per-side as ‘down-fills'. Sixteen Outline Subtech 218 subwoofers provided low frequency reinforcement, and the whole system was powered by Outline T-Series amplifiers.
FOH engineer and producer Matteo Cifelli, whose many production and engineering credits include Tom Jones, Mike & The Mechanics, Blue, Zucchero, and Il Divo said: "Outline has always been my first choice when it comes to PA. After years, and hundreds of shows doing FOH for Sir Tom Jones, I have used every kind of PA around the world. The difference in quality I experience when putting my mixes through a Butterfly or a GTO system is astonishing. All the details that you miss with other systems are present: the vocal clarity is outstanding and the overall results are so good that the audience, promoter, manager and artist all have big smiles on their faces. They can all hear the difference, it's obvious."
