Rock legends expand their relationship with Bose® Professional with new RoomMatch® system, installed for a special concert of fan favorites and deep cuts from the classic 1981 album 4


Framingham, Massachusetts, November 6, 2014 – Rock legends Foreigner recently staged a special concert event at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. As a special treat for fans, the band focused on both classic singles and deeper cuts from the classic 1981 album 4 – the original home of “Juke Box Hero,” “Urgent,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You” and other fan favorites. They even pulled out special acoustic arrangements of well-known concert staples to give the fans something distinct. For the audio system, the band, its management and audio team turned to a trusted name: Bose® Professional.

The band currently uses Bose L1® Model II systems with B2 bass modules and T1 ToneMatch® engine for their VIP performances, but for this event, they used a custom-installed system consisting of two six-module RoomMatch Progressive Directivity Arrays with six RMS218 subwoofers. The system was powered with PowerMatch® amplifiers and employed Dante™ networking to pass audio between stage left and right amplifier locations. Brian Simon, FOH Audio Engineer for the band, had taken part in a RoomMatch system demo several months ago, and thought this performance and venue in particular would be a golden opportunity to put such a system to good use.

“Bose is a name we trust in the Foreigner organization, based on our experiences in the past,” stated Brian Simon. “After the RoomMatch demo, I was curiously awaiting a chance to mix the band on a RoomMatch system in the right venue. In fact, I wanted an opportunity to ‘push’ the system with higher SPL’s. I was not disappointed; the system performed very well in the room and provided the audience an all-around balanced sound in every seat. I was impressed.”

Phil Carson, Foreigner Manager, stated, “We did not know exactly what to expect with a RoomMatch system, but I do know our expectations were high. We have used Bose products at our VIP events with excellent results. The band and our FOH Audio Engineer were extremely happy with the sound of the system, and the bottom line is that the audience really loved the sound that night. We always knew the system would deliver, and in fact it exceeded our expectations.”

Founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones agrees: “Bose continues to impress. The Borgata show was all about the fans; we’ve put on some great-sounding shows recently, but it was extra-important to us that the sound for this one would be impeccable. We’ve used the L1 system for our VIP events to achieve a close, intimate environment – the RoomMatch system did something similar, but on a much larger, more powerful scale. Everyone was thrilled – the band, our engineers, the fans, and everyone else. Thank you to Bose for a magical night.”
