"I've always loved how the MILO sounds on the Celtic Woman material, but I've gotta say it's a lot of fun hearing what it does for that classic 1980s drum machine kick and snare. It's as powerful as it is nuanced, and the amount of headroom is amazing."

- Wayne Pauley
FOH Engineer and Crew Chief, Regeneration Tour

The first annual Regeneration Tour has been filling amphitheaters and arenas across North America, as fans turned out in droves for a jam-packed evening of '80s rock legends. And they're getting their money's worth, with five bands presenting a diverse selection of musical styles and hits, ranging from the electronica of The Human League and the synthpop of A Flock of Seagulls and Naked Eyes to power pop from Belinda Carlisle and the blue-eyed soul of ABC. Delivering the musical variety is a powerful Meyer Sound system featuring the MILO line array loudspeaker.

Engineer Wayne Pauley continued his run as the hardest-working FOH guy on the road, taking advantage of a short gap between separate world tours with Celtic Woman and The High Kings to man the faders for all five acts on the month-long extravaganza.
Pauley gives the MILO high marks for its performance. "I've always loved how the MILO sounds on the Celtic Woman material, but I've gotta say it's a lot of fun hearing what it does for that classic 1980s drum machine kick and snare," Pauley remarks. "It's as powerful as it is nuanced, and the amount of headroom is amazing."

Provided by East Rutherford, NJ-based Masque Sound, the Meyer Sound system comprised two hangs of ten MILO and two MILO 120 line array loudspeakers per side. Six UPA-1P loudspeakers covered frontfill, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system handled system drive and processing.

For Pauley, mixing five bands in a single night made for a long but satisfying day of work. "I'm having so much fun on this tour," Pauley says. "These bands are in top form, and it's just a blast to hear these tunes again."
