Metallica WorldWired tour

Presently working its way through the largest stadiums and festival sites in North America, Metallica’s summer-long WorldWired tour is carrying a massive Meyer Sound Leo Family reinforcement system capable of serving of 50,000-plus audiences. Supplied by VER Tour Sound, the system incorporates Meyer Sound’s new VLFC control element.

‘Big Mick’ Hughes has Metallica’s FOH engineer for 33 years of the band’s 35-year history. Over the past five years of intermittent tours and one-off events, he has listed the Leo systems as first among his rider preferences. ‘I love the clarity of Leo,’ he says. ‘It’s a very powerful box that produces a fantastic guitar and vocal sound. Also, having a two-way system, with the crossover point down where it is, keeps everything smooth and sweet in the mid-highs.’
