Here is a compact article about the sound system they used:
So you were right, they used the same sound system for stadiums as well as smaller venues.
And I found this about the monitoring unit:
R-Type Celebrates Forty Licks with the
As the Rolling Stones kick off on their 40th anniversary world tour this September - entitled Forty Licks - Chris Wade-Evans has a new member of the monitoring cast in the form of an R-Type, supplied by Chicago-based dB Sound. The 4-frame R-Type is specified with 78 inputs, plus a full 32 outputs and a 32 x 16 output matrix.
The tour will take in 27 cities in the US and Canada, followed by Europe, Australia and the Far East during 2003 - with a first-ever visit to China as part of the plan. The idea behind the Forty Licks tour is to showcase the band’s diverse musical and performance skills - playing a mix of stadiums, arenas, theatres and clubs all during the same tour. On the monitoring front, the plan is for the R-Type to team up with the Cadac M-Type that went out on the last Bridges to Babylon tour. In certain venues, Chris will monitor on the multiframe R-Type or the M-Type, with other locations requiring both consoles to operate alongside one another.
A double album of the same title is due for release in October - as the band’s first comprehensively retrospective album, from their beginnings to the present day.
Btw, the sound system had 252 000 Watt!
Also check out the website of the sound system producer, some good info about the B2B and Licks tour on there! [dbsound.com
