Shure Sets the Stage at Lollapalooza

As in the past, music fans jammed Chicago's Grant Park for this year's
Lollapalooza, drawing sell-out crowds August 1-3. Seen and heard onstage
throughout the event, Shure microphones played a big role at the
festival.

Lollapalooza 2008 hosted the long-awaited Chicago return of rap/rock
pioneers Rage Against the Machine. Aside from a gig at Alpine Valley in
East Troy, WI last summer, Rage hadn't been seen or heard in the metro
area proper since a 1999 headlining show at the Allstate Arena. Marked y
ripping musical exercises in polemics such as "Testify" and "Guerrilla
Radio," the band's headlining fury was led by frontman Zack de la Rocha,
who relied on a Shure hardwired SM58 to take his message to the streets.

Choosing Lollapalooza 2008 to play its first North American gig on the
second leg of its summer tour, Radiohead plowed its own path through a
sell-out crowd of 75,000 to close out the first night, soothing those in
attendance with a mixture of pastoral ambience, slashing guitars, and a
mystical light show that seemed to keep threatening storms at bay. Thom
Yorke's vocals and guitar helped guide the two-hour set, with the
frontman singing into a Beta 87C from Shure.
