Kings of Leon Take ROE Visual on Tour
Shenzhen, China (November 2021) – The Kings of Leon Tour has finally hit the road. The stage design from Paul Normandale includes moving pods fitted with ROE Visual Vanish LED panels. Upstaging Inc. and Fuse Technical Group supplied all AV equipments.
The Kings of Leon 2021-2022 “When You See Yourself” tour has finally kicked off; the tour is planned to comprise 32 shows in 10 countries. Upstage Inc. was commissioned to custom build the unique stage set, as designed by Paul Normandale. The design includes a Kinesys motion control system used for the automation of scenic pods, consisting of ROE Visual V8T LED panels.
The moving pods, fitted with the Vanish V8 transparent LED screens, create nice, layered effects in the shows’ visuals. Starting with a basic stage, the intrinsic stage design is slowly revealed as the show unfolds.
Upstage has almost all bases covered for this tour, delivering the video and lighting and automation, and trucking. Fuse provided the video backwall, consisting of ROE Carbon series CB5 in AirFrames. All LED processing was one using Brompton SX40’s and XD boxes.
“We believe that all audiences could be engaged through great stage design and vivid images brought by LED panels.” States Tony Thompson, the project manager of Upstaging Inc. “ROE Visual provides us with LED products presenting incredible real stage visualization for all, and we are delighted with the results. Having the Vanish V8T panels on the stage, the visual effects are in line with our high expectations.”
“It was exciting for ROE Visual to work together with Upstaging Inc and Fuse Technical Group, and participate in this brilliant tour. We are glad to see the success of the performance and look forward to more opportunities for collaboration in future projects.” Comments by Frank Montero, Managing Director of ROE Visual US.
