Kit for the UK Tour
 
I am somewhat amazed that the regular compliment of drapes etc made it all the way across the pond
One of my sister's Manchester photos

shows a display that is almost identical to the usual North American one but the Albert Hall set was obviously more restrained/constrained by the more open stage there as per Sharion Lynchs'photo that I will copy and paste from the Facebook Fan club page

One of the later emerging pictures from the RAH concert dramatically shows how the drape location was changed to suit the open top stage there.
But the Manchester photo clearly shows that the long metal gantry that holds the numerous compliment of spotlights as well as being the usual
top fixing point for the drapes and constitutes a pretty big proportion of the items that fill the usual North American tractor trailer rig was also shipped to the UK either by sea or air freight not a cheap option I bet but presumably worth it to reduce the effort and time required to set up
at each of the many concerts on this tour. https://paintbynumberdreamsdotcom.fi...foot.jpg?w=690

I Must say the settings and lighting at the RAH were lovely, easy to overlook the work they do!

It is impressive yes, I guess that by taking ALL of the usual kit, that includes a number of floor based lighting gizmos that have rotating colour discs to produce the attractive patterns and coloUrs on the drapes, must save time and effort setting up at each venue
