RG Jones has today (May 23rd) announced that it will provide Martin Audio MLA loudspeaker systems for the London 2012 Coca Cola Olympic torch relay concerts.
Financed by Azule Finance, RG Jones was able to purchase the highly specialised audio equipment and provide a tailored system for the pre-Olympic events.
The Martin Audio MLA speaker system is a large-scale concert PA system that is designed to generate a wave front that can focus the output on particular areas of the crowd. Reducing noise levels outside of those spaces, the MLA system has enabled RG Jones to provide a solution that is aimed at giving the audience an optimum concert experience, whilst complying with noise control regulations in residential areas, where a number of the concerts are set to take place.
John Carroll, director of RG Jones, explained: “Thanks to the finance from Azule, the MLA speaker system was ready for action, and made its debut last week at the closing ceremony of the Sainsbury’s UK School Games in the Olympic Park. In the build-up to London 2012, this investment will ensure we are best positioned to meet some very specific requirements for the summer festival season.”
Meanwhile, Gavin Scott, sales director at Azule Finance, also added: “RG Jones has a solid heritage within the industry and the investment in the MLA speaker system is set to build on this even further. This deal demonstrates the company’s on-going commitment to providing exceptional service for its clients and delivering a superior experience for the concert-going public throughout the London 2012 celebrations.”
The Torch Relay Concerts in Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds and Birmingham will feature artists such as Mark Ronson, Eliza Dolittle and The Wanted, and are part of whole host of celebrations in the run up to the Games which start on July 27th.
