With over a decade long relationship, Sir Paul McCartney, once again, commissioned TAIT to build a one of a kind stage and scenic set for his One on One Tour. McCartney performs a high-energy, high-impact show, displaying a repertoire of his music catalog supported by electrifying video animation, a moving stage and an array of various still photos.
Since McCartney’s compelling Super Bowl XXXIX performance in 2005 where TAIT provided its artistic talent and staging experience, the two have worked closely together to continue executing the best audience experiences. Likewise, for the One on One tour, TAIT worked closely with McCartney’s Production Manager and Production Designer, Mark Spring and LeRoy Bennett, respectively, to fashion an unforgettable crowd experience.
In creating a more immersive audience experience, Paul McCartney is elevated via the downstage lift during the show, raising him 16ft into the air, providing different visual levels to the audience.
To do so, TAIT brought a fresh design to the One on One arena tour by implementing TAIT’s proprietary automation software platform, TAIT Navigator. The automation platform controls all of the moving pieces including lighting. In addition, TAIT provided an entire staging and software automation package which includes 42 NavHoists and custom stage lights. The main stage design also includes lighting frames, Mag-Decks for the stage, and a downstage lift clad with TV panels displaying continuous, dynamic LED video content.
