"Paul's very much a live rock and roll player, and he approaches the songs from a very straightforward, old-school perspective.... The MILO handles the full dynamic range, from the intimacy of Paul playing solo with an acoustic guitar, to the whole band rocking full on."

- Paul "Pab" Boothroyd
FOH engineer, Paul McCartney

On September 25, Paul McCartney will deliver a historic performance in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv, nearly 43 years after the Israeli government banned The Beatles' show in 1965 for being too subversive. The highly anticipated occasion will be held at the city's Hayarkon Park, the site of concerts by Michael Jackson, U2, and Elton John. Slovenia-based Festival Novo Mesto and Israel's Kilim Electronics will provide a powerful Meyer Sound system for the event.

The main system comprises two hangs of 16 MILO line array loudspeakers each, augmented by arrays of seven and nine MILO loudspeakers respectively covering outfill duties. Twelve UPA-1P loudspeakers are used for frontfill, while forty-eight 700-HP subwoofers provide bass support. The delay system includes left and right towers of seven MICA line array loudspeakers each and six more MICA loudspeakers at the center.

"Paul's very much a live rock and roll player, and he approaches the songs from a very straightforward, old-school perspective," explains McCartney's long-time FOH engineer Paul "Pab" Boothroyd. "People have an attachment to these songs, and it's my job to reproduce it faithfully, with the vocals and the hooks as they expect to hear them. The MILO array does a great job of delivering that degree of accuracy, with a focus that will cover every seat in the house. And the MILO handles the full dynamic range, from the intimacy of Paul playing solo with an acoustic guitar, to the whole band rocking full on."
