Same thing happened with Periphery when they were touring with Dream Theater. Their computers failed or something and they lost all their backing tracks and automated MIDI patch changes. It was a massive trainwreck to the point Petrucci approached the band and literally said: "You guys better fix this shit".
you'd think that if this is their profession and its critical to their livelihood, this contingency would be planned for.as an IT professional. people don't respect the need for a comprehensive backup solution until shit hits the fan, just my experience over and over again.
I've known the odd multimillion dollar corporation that failed backup and contingency because, "We never used that shit before" when the bean-counters get the year-end statement on backup. They never notice until they need it, but then it's too late to rubberstamp the months out of date solution.you'd think that if this is their profession and its critical to their livelihood, this contingency would be planned for.
