Ed Sheeran Makes Magic in Mumbai with Meyer Sound

Asia Tour Finale Showcases Seamless Stadium Sound

Ed Sheeran's "+ - = ÷ x" ("Mathematics") Tour kicked off its final leg in Mumbai, India with an ever-comprehensive sound system

Since its kickoff in Dublin back in April 2022, Ed Sheeran's "+ - = ÷ x" ("Mathematics") Tour has touched down in more than 100 cities around the globe, dazzling millions of fans with a career-spanning one-man stadium show in the round.

The tour wrapped up its Asian leg in March 2023 at the Mahalaxmi Racecourse in Mumbai, delivering an unforgettable sonic experience thanks to collaboration between the tour production team, Major Tom, Meyer Sound, India-based distributor Sun Infonet, and equipment suppliers, Total Multimedia, Phoenix Networks, Friends of Shiva, and PP Sound.

The "Mathematics" tour was brought to life with an extensive inventory from Meyer Sound, featuring PANTHER large-format linear line array loudspeakers, 1100 LFC low-frequency control elements, Galileo GALAXY Network Platforms, Nebra software platform, MAPP 3D prediction software, and more

The "Mathematics" tour has been a showcase for Meyer Sound's newest technologies, featuring 212 PANTHER large-format linear line array loudspeakers in 14 arrays, supplemented by 78 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements in-flown and ground-stacked gradient arrays and 22 LEOPARD compact linear line array loudspeakers as front fills, all managed by 26 Galileo GALAXY Network Platforms. The MILAN-based system incorporates Meyer Sound's new Nebra software platform for network configuration and system monitoring, with MAPP 3D prediction software realigning coverage for each stadium stop.

"Mumbai was our only Indian stop on our Middle East and Asia tour, and we brought our scaled in-the-round show with us," says Ed Sheeran's Production Director Chris Marsh. (The main sound system for the Asia leg centered around a box truss with two 16-box PANTHER arrays flanking ten 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements flown from each corner, with the stage system of 22 LEOPARD loudspeakers and 18 1100-LFC control elements on the ground.) "We were unable to carry everything with us due to restrictions in how much equipment we could freight between territories, and the PA system was one thing that we needed to source locally."

Sourced locally from Meyer Sound's Indian distributors Sun Infonet, Phoenix Networks, Friends of Shiva, and Total Multimedia, the sound reinforcement offered the audience an unparalleled sonic experience
