When Eric Church announced his 55-date Gather Again Tour, expectations were high. The Nashville singer-songwriter, renowned for his energetic performances, was determined to go above and beyond to celebrate his return to touring after the pandemic. Partnering with TAIT, the team set out to create a stage and camera setup that delivered incredible views for every attendee.

For the first time in his illustrious career, Church used an in-the-round stage to get closer to his adoring fans. The stage spanned 2,400 square feet across multiple levels, with four video screens and moving instrument sets.

One of the show’s unique elements was the flying TAIT Navigator Camera System, which shot live footage for the overhead big screens. We engineered a unique dual truss system featuring two 165-foot spans equipped with custom winches, giving 360-degree coverage of the stage. The camera system, controlled by TAIT’s Navigator Automation Platform, brought the audience closer to the action without the need for intrusive static cameras.

With a new triple album to play, plus a career’s worth of platinum hits, Church was able to improvise a different set list each night. The tour’s innovative approach paid off, drawing acclaim for its audience engagement and freewheeling mix of technology and artistry.
