Jay-Z and Kanye West

Watch the Throne

Year
2011-2012

Jay Z and Kanye West took their joint tour to new heights with our clever scissor and column lifts. We also supplied staging for the tour, using high capacity phenolic flooring to withstand pyrotechnics. TAIT produced two enormous LED-clad column lifts. The column lifts were manufactured with 15mm LED decks on the surface and video fascia on all four sides. We also created the scissor lift, seen here, which time and time again provided a smooth and seamless lift for the performers.

Thanks to our partners: Designer, Es Devlin; Lighting Designer, Nick Whitehouse; and Production Managers, Jason Danter and Bobby Schneider. 

The capabilities in this project are: LED Integration, Show Control, Staging.
