On the afternoon of Friday 29th November 2002, after being almost upstaged by torrential rain, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers performed at Sydneyâ€™s Aussie Stadium (formerly known as the Sydney Football Stadium) in Moore Park. Jands Production Services provided an L-ACOUSTICS System consisting of 48 V-DOSC, 18 dV-DOSC, 16 ARCS and 48 SB218 Sub cabinets. This resulted in the best sound production ever produced in the Stadium that, up until now, held a reputation as a venue with an acoustic nightmare for sound engineers. The V-DOSC was configured with 15 elements a side for the main left and right arrays, with 3 dV-DOSC boxes under hung for nearfill. On each side were 9 elements again with 3 underhung dV-DOSC elements. The ARCS cabinets were used as infill boxes.

For eight months, ‘The Last Time’ tour packed 35 years of Farnham hits into a two and a half hour show.
The tent production received great reviews and the dV-DOSC System, supplied by Jands Production Services, provided excellent coverage. The system was configured ‘in the round’ using four arrays. Each array consisted of 9 dV-DOSC and 2 dV-SUBS powered by Crown MA5002 amplifiers. Four audio crew were supplied by JPS to do the entire eight month tour.
