Eppu Normaali has an impressive back catalogue of albums (9 platinum and 4 gold selling), and has sold 1.5 million copies in Finalnd alone, making it the country’s biggest selling band. Support acts varied during the tour and included well-known hardcore metal band, Kotiteollisuus, ethnic rock band, Lauri Tähkä & Elonkerjuu, newwave punk rockers Stalingrad Cowboys, and hard rockers, 51Koodia.
“Reactions from the band engineers was very positive,“ explains EM Nordic Finland’s Jorma Tikka, who was at hand to provide technical support during the tour. “They all found it a very user friendly interface and were impressed with how easy it is to operate as many of them were using the system for the first time. Engineers were able to concentrate on mixing the show, rather than navigating menus, and they also praised the great sound of the system, and the excellent dynamics.“
