Following Cardinal Copia around Europe
Ghost has become a very well known band to us. For the past six years, we have followed the band with our products and services for various locations around the world. This time, we are following Ghost on their tour called The Ultimate Tour Called Death.
We are in charge of providing a one- stop- solution throughout their European tour.
The Swedish rock band is known for its unconventional live shows, featuring the eight band members wearing identical costumes- apart from the lead singer who is dressed as either the character Papa Emeritus or Cardinal Copia.
Touring with a great band like Ghost, we had to face a few challenges in the production of their tour. One of the challenges involved the size of the production versus how much space it would take up during transportation. This also included the work of the crew members and the time it takes to set up the production and get ready for sound checks. Furthermore, Victory also had to work together with the two supporting bands, Tribulation and All Them Witches, who was also support by our one- stop- solution.
This mean that while we had to be effective in the size control of sound and light, the production still had to have the effect of being a major stadium concert on stage, and be put up in no time.
Additionally, the sound system had to fit all venues in order for all the seats in the house to be able to get excellent sound.
Victory also made an extension of the stage with grated decks. This additional stage would carry out the functions involving smoke, pyro tech and light effects. Furthermore, we also made a three meter high catwalk with stairs made specially for this tour, which would ensure the safety of the artists.
You can experience Ghost live during the months of November and December 2019 in the UK, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, France, Luxembourg.
