Technical production was co-ordinated by Production North and the lighting design was by Peter Barnes.
The show united a galaxy of stars – including Tom Jones, Joss Stone, Robert Plant, Lulu, Hot Rats, Razorlight, David Gray, Ronan Keating, Gabriella Cilmi, Dan Gillespie Sells and others. It featured some amazing performances and unique collaborations that made it a very memorable and special evening.
Barnes’ rig consisted of 4 trusses – a straight one upstage and three chevron-shaped over-stage, staggered in length at 32, 20 and 12 ft a side, and raked at slightly different heights. This created an architecture for the space and a visually interesting view of the stage as well as increasing the scope and depth of the moving lights hung on the trusses, allowing them a really dynamic focus range.
It was a charity event, so the principal goal was to deliver a design that was cost effective and highly flexible, with enough latitude to allow a spectacular light-show for all the artists appearing in the two and a half hour performance.
