Q. Hi Oracle,
Can you tell me who is that guy working as the main Coldplay soundman and testing mics and everything on the MX tour? He didn't quite look like Dan Green. Who is he? And why not Dan Green this time.

The Oracle replies:

Dan Green is the FOH (front of house) sound engineer so he's not on the stage testing mics etc.
It may surprise you to learn there is a Monitor Engineer (& assistant) as well as a Sound Crew of 6. Dan Green has a FOH assistant too.
