Britannia Row (Britrow) Production, the event production company, provided the entire live audio infrastructure for Chris Martin tribute at The BRIT Awards on February 22, 2017.

Garry Bradshaw, sound engineer at Britannia Row, said: “Chris Martin was singing live while obviously George’s vocal was a recording of ‘A Different Corner’ but not a studio recording; this was a live take from one of his concerts on the Symphonica tour. For me, hearing his voice again like that really raised the hairs on the back of my neck. Not surprisingly a lot of attention went into this performance.”

“Myself and Dan Green for Chris Martin had half the desk each, I had the left side, three faders, one of the music which was recorded specially for this performance, one of George from the tour and a fader for those little bits of dialogue that were cut into the tribute.” The desk, a Digico SD7, was provided by Britannia Row Productions as was the entire live audio infrastructure. “Josh Lloyd from Britrow looked after front of house, he is very, very good; I have hundred per cent trust in him, he knows that SD7 better than anyone I know.”

Event production manager for The BRITS Awards, Kate Wright and Lisa Shenton, commented: “Britrow are extremely good at providing the support for all the elements of this show – the performing artists’ individual needs, the live event (i.e. live audience experience) and the TV show.”
