“Making the colossal Kinetic Cathedral stage tourable was a journey in itself.”

It was a challenge to compress the 135m (440ft) Vegas stage into a stage suitable for touring, while maintaining the same feel and design. The end result was possibly even more impressive than its big brother. I implemented even more detail into the stage, by using printed panels with digital art instead of painted panels. Up close, you could spot even more new details and those small details make the difference between a cool and an epic stage. By looking at the faces in the crowd on show nights, I suspect we succeeded.

THE FINAL RESULT

Visitors were taken on a journey through six different fantasy worlds, accompanied by video content projected onto seven gigantic LED screens. This in combination with a powerful show full of laser, water and light effects. All of this on a flexible tour stage with impressive owls to guard the DJ’s by taking them under their wings.
