When German band The Scorpions played their Middle Eastern concerts recently, it was the first time an international rock band had toured the Gulf.
In Qatar the concert came to the beach area of the Inter-Continental Hotel in Doha.
Promoter, MediaTech MD, Karnig Sarkissian, brought in Lebanese-based rental company Eltek and Lumatron Qatar's Salim Abil Mona to jointly provide the equipment.
Despite the difficulties of transporting the rig across the beach, a Martin Audio line array was erected on scaffolding, with eight W8LC cabinets suspended from either side of a stage specifically built for the show. Four subwoofers were positioned on either side of the stage and four smaller W8LM line array cabinets were hung from the lighting rig, stage centre, for front fills.
