RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS,
The Peppers have chosen Colonel Tom Touring for their 2016/2017 world tour. This tour’s design is amazing. We met with the designers and production team months in advance to find exactly the right product for the tour. Colonel Tom Touring made a substantial investment, buying the exact product that fit the design. We then worked with WICKLEY Interactive who created custom carbon fiber frames for the screens, they really are “mad geniuses”. The end results have been met with critical acclaim and is a sight to behold.
Darius Rucker 2016
For many years now Colonel tom touring has had the pleasure of working with this fantastic artist and his equally fantastic production team. This year is no different. With a great new show design and amazing media this show is one not to miss.
Working closely with the design team including Mark Devlin Visual Design, we created an image map that allowed the creative team to create stunning visuals for this entire show. The LED Product is all Flyer 12 and incorporates 2 large walls along with small two tile panels hung all over the set.
Working directly with Pearl Jam’s long time director, Colonel Tom put together a production package that matched all of his requirements. This included miniature HD Cameras, and RF cameras. CTT Also is supplying camera dollies for the tour. Another interesting aspect about the design is that the show is directed from front of house. We accomplished this using a Grass Valley Kayak switcher package with the control panel, multi viewer ect. located at front of house and all of engineering in the typical back stage location.
Caesars Palace, Las Vegas and Europe.
This completely revamped tour for 2016 looks amazing! With 6 triangular set pieces on the stage that rotate, a 12’x 18′ center screen and a 50’x 26.4′ upstage screen, there is plenty of looks.
Kicking off their world wide tour this year at Coachella, Major Lazer choose Colonel Tom touring for video support. Supplying Mini HD Cameras, Bradly Ball Cams, HD Switcher package and LED for the DJ platform and 4 moving set pieces up stage. Because of their schedule Colonel Tom had to supply 2 complete systems. One for the U.S. shows and one for all of the European Shows. This of course was made much easier with our newer, larger location in Salisbury U.K.
Florence and the Machine
Once again Florence and the Machine have chosen CTT for their video production requirements. Last years tour was a fantastic successes and this years tour promises to be much more of the same
Carlos Santana continues to wow audiences worldwide and Colonel Tom Touring is proud to give full HD Video support to his iconic performances. Carlos is very demanding about the presentation of his show and CTT doesn’t disappoint. One of the issues with using all of the modern technology is that after running the signal through so much gear the latency of the video becomes to great. Working with Bob Higgins, Santana’s video director, we came up with a plan to offer all of the functionality required for the show and yet keeping the latency to a minimum.
