In 2022, we had the pleasure of supporting Joe Lycett with a 360-degree production service that saw his ‘More, More, More! How Do You Lycett?’ tour, visit many UK arenas.
As we travelled through UK’s major cities, we deployed a full production package that included all aspects of lighting, video, audio, and rigging, providing us with another opportunity for efficient, multi-discipline delivery.
The core of the lighting package was flown on three 50ft Tyler GT PLUS trusses and comprised Martin MAC Ultra Performances and MAC Aura XBs, with the addition of Chauvet Strike Array 2 Blinders and Robe Forte EP used for follow spots, operated remotely by Robe RoboSpot system.
The lighting setup was completed by on-stage Elation DTW Bar 1000 footlight and LED Digital Festoon for the tree, which added beautiful accent lighting to the most prominent element of the set design, which was designed by Set and Costume Designer Fly Davis. The set was further complemented by hazebase Base Haze Pro hazers used for atmospherics during key moments of Joe’s performance.
Lighting design and operation were done by Dave Smith, who used grandMA3 light for control.
At the Front of House position, Dave was joined by Damian Breeze, who was the FOH Engineer using DiGiCo SD11i, with another SD11i control surface used at the stage left position by Monitor Engineer Rae Horton.
The CODA Audio loudspeaker system comprised AiRAY Series boxes on main and side hangs, with APS and HOPS8T used for fills and SCP subwoofers covering the bottom end. The Adlib team deployed CODA Audio ViRAY boxes for delays, with the whole system powered by CODA Audio Linus14D amps.
The audio system was completed by RF set-up that utilised Sennheiser 2000 Series with DPA 4266 Headsets used by Joe on stage.
The Adlib team deployed an upstage flown LED wall using Unilumin UPADIIH05 5.9mm panels for video, with two projected IMAG screens beside the stage. The IMAG set-up consisted of Stumpfl Screens with Panasonic DZ21K Projectors.
The camera system utilised three Sony HXC-100 HD Broadcast Channels, two positioned at FOH and one on stage. The video was controlled on Panasonic HS410 Vision Mixing PPU.
The whole production was trucked by Adlib’s two Artics, with additional support from KB Events, who have provided one Artic and one HIAB for the tour.
George Johnson from Chambers Management, a leading Comedy and Entertainment Agency, oversaw the production and brought Adlib on board, having previously worked together on many previous projects.
