Prince and the Superbowl - Behind the scenes

Here is a really quick follow-up to my Superbowl post from last week.

A lot of folks in the pro audio industry marvelled at the effort that was put forth to make Prince's half-time performance so unbelievably successful in the midst of a downpour.


Here is a link to an article from Front Of House magazine's online edition that gives some of the detail. This article ultimately points to a press release on Sennheiser's website that gives even more detail, if you are interested. They make the wireless mics that were used.



Yeah, I know, this is another geeky techo post, but some folks like that kind of thing.


Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!

p.s. I hate the way Blogger does photos.

On a "non-techno-geek" note (only because that is not how I roll)... Prince had a commercial (seemingly funded by himself) during the Grammy's thanking all the fans and everyone who put together the Super Bowl halftime show. That made quite a good impression on me.

Another thing was the ovation Prince received when he just came out to introduce another artist... very cool.

Just comments for your comment section. :-)

Just re-read my comments... I have been sick for the past week... sorry I am not too "with it!"

I did not see that, Heidi. Did you ever see his movie, Purple Rain? Pretty cool...some great musical numbers.

I remember watching Purple Rain on HBO... back when cable was such the cool thing to have. So, like, in high school you would watch movies like that and Top Gun over and over again and never get sick of them! Ha ha!
