Ed Sheeran sold out three performances at Wembley Stadium—a 80,000 capacity stadium—July 10-12. Despite the scale of the venue, production manager and FOH engineer Chris Marsh created an "up close and personal" sonic experience for all the fans. Marsh deployed a Meyer Sound LEO linear large-scale reinforcement system, hanging the front arrays on a 25m tall structure to aim the sound directly at the audience. Sheeran used a Sennheiser Digital 9000 wireless system, and Marsh mixed the singer on a DiGiCo SD7 digital console. Lighting and production design was by Mark Cunniffe. Watch the video from NBC below to listen to the intimate sonic experience. Read the Q&A with Chris Marsh about designing the sound for Wembley.
