Miking up amplifiers on stage to go through the mixing desk to the Public Address system has always been a major logistical exercise, with switchovers and different bands requiring different setups. Then there’s the effect - stands and boom arms appearing from every conceivable corner, not to mention the need for an army of space..stage crew.
