Aerosmith’s Las Vegas residency includes use of immersive sound

 Aerosmith on Saturday night (April 6) kicked off its sold-out Las Vegas residency, Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild, at the Park MGM Hotel’s Park Theater. And with the inventive use of THX-certified immersive sound for the performance, the legendary rock band — which was formed nearly 50 years ago — might have just given the entertainment industry a look at what its future might hold.   

The Hollywood Reporter took a tour of the venue in advance of the performance, and show producer Steve Dixon related that its creative aural experience — which represents one year and five months of planning and prep — was conceived to bring the cinema’s immersive sound to a live concert. “I was looking at [how to advance] the guest experience and how other industries [particularly high-end movie theaters] were meeting those demands. But our industry was falling behind. We were advancing lighting and video, but sound was being largely ignored,” Dixon said.   

Dixon, who has also worked with Guns N’ Roses and Justin Timberlake, then got an important call from Aerosmith manager Larry Rudolph, who was planning the residency as the Park Theater was getting ready to open. Dixon sat down with the band’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Rudolph and others involved in the show, and said, “We can give the world and fans a way to hear you and see you like never before,” he recalls.                (IANS)
