Pop sensation Jessie J embarked on her first major UK tour to promote her debut album Who You Are with a custom backdrop sign created by LS-Live.
Her seven-date sell-out Stand Up tour stopped at Academy venues in Glasgow, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Dublin, as well as London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and finished up at Belfast’s Mandela Hall in April. The colour-changing LED tubed lettering spelling the star’s name was the centerpiece of the stage set.
LD Louis Oliver approached LS-Live to create the LED RGB tubed sign based on the shape of Jessie J’s logo, which had to be fully controllable by DMX 512 and patched into an Avolites Tiger Touch. Despite time pressures, Oliver said the end result was "fantastic".
"I’ve never worked with LS-Live on the custom creation of equipment before," he commented, "but they are honest people with honest prices and in my opinion that’s the best way to work." Oliver will now be adopting the sign for Jessie J’s festival run this summer.
LS-Live’s award-winning team of electrical engineers, technicians and fabricators specialise in creating custom signs and neon flex signs for any event. The team operates out of the warehouse in West Yorkshire, where bespoke sets and structures have been designed and built for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Westlife, Scissor Sisters, Jaguar, Diageo and Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds.
