the guarantees these hip hop artists demand are hilarious. i guess non-discriminating people pay it though...doubt they are avid concert-goers.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Its the same gear used in literally thousands of installs and tours. There are tougher venues and worse rigs for sure.
