Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues Tour gave fans an electro-pop experience as the band performed hits from six solo albums on a custom TAIT stage. The 74 ft. wide main stage was equipped with band risers and an automated LED cube structure. Additionally, a long v-shaped runway extends out to the arena floor from the main stage creating a VIP pit area.
During the show, TAIT’s LED cube structure serves as a vibrant addition to the main stage’s video screen backdrop. At various times, the LED cubes appear as one kinetic structure or two independent structures. To create the effect, the LED cube structure is supported by two separate tracking systems 1) a ground-tracking system built into the main stage and 2) a flown-tracking system built into the overhead rigging.
The ground-tracking system is fabricated using 2 stacked trusses equipped with LED light sabers creating the look of 14 staggered cubes. Additionally, the ground-tracking system is capable of moving the LED cubes downstage via four power transmission units built into the stage decks. Similarly, the flown-tracking system mirrors the stacked and staggered cubes and relies on 12 Nav Hoists built into the overhead rigging to move the LED cubes up/down vertically.
All TAIT elements are controlled and operated using TAIT Navigator.
