  The mission tapped the full depth of creative and technical excellence. Audience engagement could never waver, and the team served it up in grand style.
The centerpiece of the production was a massive 30 by 90 foot LED wall spanning almost the full width of the arena floor. First of their kind elevating portals were built-in to the wall, creating unique entry and exit points for onstage activity. The gigantic canvas displayed a profusion of custom media ranging from pure entertainment, to business support graphics,
to abstract motion art.
Reflecting the “Celebrate Stars” theme, the stage deck featured star-like thrusts reaching outward into the audience. The deck featured 1,200 square feet of LED flooring, which exploded to life with beautiful abstract media to complement the main LED wall.
Mirroring the shape of the star thrusts, a pair of 80 foot wide image magnification screens loomed above the stage, carrying out the visual theme and providing clear sight lines from every seat.
With over 300 instruments at their command, the lighting designers crafted a dynamic and unique look and feel for each moment of the show.
Employing 150 speaker cabinets, sound engineers designed the audio system around the Martin Audio MLA loudspeaker system, providing the refined listening experience of a major concert. Rigging itself set a new record for the arena.
A staggering 135,000 pounds were hung from 136 hoists, beating out the massive specs of the recent Taylor Swift Tour.
Content was equally impressive. Each session was framed with a creative motif, providing beautiful openings, closings and transitional interludes, giving the sensation of being at a Broadway theatrical production.
