Yes folks! We all piled into the vehicle late May and headed towards sunny Indianapolis to catch Nickelback, Breaking Benjamin, and Sick Puppies. Sick Puppies opened up with their intensely popular single “War” and slammed it hard for 20 minutes. Then Shinedown rocked for about 35. Next up were new endorsers Breaking Benjamin. By this time, the Amphitheater was jam packed. Ben Burnley was “fueling the fire” through his UR2/SM58 wireless. Then came the pyro filled, fist pumping anthems of Nickelback. Stay tuned to Shure for the video interview I got onsite with Ben of Breaking Benjamin. He’s a great guy!

- Drying out !!
Most of the gear that could (or might) be saved in the Soundcheck flood was brought to a dry storage location. Again, I'll let the pictures tell the stories.

At this point I have our artist roster memorized, our products memorized, everything memorized. It's hard to watch a TV show or a music video and not notice a Shure…
