Irish rock band The Script launched their UK and Ireland tour in March to promote their third studio album #3 with a stage set courtesy of LS-Live and Perry Scenic.
Taking the number of the album as a concept, the stage set is designed around the theme of number three, both in terms of structure and visuals. The downstage edge of LS-Live’s rolling house stage is wrapped with a 6’ high black and white vinyl scrim reading ‘three’ in many different languages. Explained General Manager Mark Blount: “There are sub speakers positioned underneath the stage, so the scrim has sections of gauze material that allow the sound to blow through, without losing the seamless look of the graphics.”
The main stage structure is a bespoke variation of one of our standard touring rental packages, custom adapted to incorporate three video screens that run up from the floor in front of the audience onto the stage underfoot, then angle up onto a 3’ high platform upstage. We designed a unique steel frame for the installation of PRG’s Nocturne video screens, which attached to the stage deck. “We also fabricated a perspex cover with an aluminium frame to cover the video screens on stage so that the band can walk over the top of them,” said Blount.
Measuring 30m wide by 13m deep, the stage connects ego risers either side via bridge and wing sections, with lower tech areas to the rear with access steps. However the width of the stage is variable in order to accommodate smaller footprints in certain venues, so the 4’ bridging components can be taken out. The surface area of the stage is also covered in a black and white patterned printed graphic on a Marley floor covering courtesy of Perry Scenic.
