The shape of the stage is based on the iconic shape of Brian May’s ‘Red Special’ guitar. The neck of the guitar forms a catwalk deep into the audience to a B stage guitar head. This allows the band to get closer to the audience than before.
The kinetic elements of the stage allow the band to be elevated above the stage to give them more choreographic and performance possibilities.
A large halo sits above the stage, moving throughout the performance. The halo contains 94 moving lights which sit in between mirrored baffles. The edge of the halo is treated in red chrome. The halo is sandwiched between a front curved video screen and rear straight screen.
The whole set is automated to move up and down to allow for various formations. These layers of the stage can hide or reveal the band, create a tension between the stage and the overhead rig and allow the band to be shown in a new and immersive way.
"A concert that will be talked about for many years to come...simply irresistible."
Queen and Adam Lambert at the Hollywood Bowl, LA.
For a two-night special, the show was adapted to fit into the Hollywood Bowl. Here, we hung the Queen Halo in the center of the Hollywood Bowl. The band riser sat on the house stage together with the rear screen and lighting. We reformatted the top front video screen to be used on the sides of the stage to create a long video screen that wrapped the whole stage creating a dynamic video environment for the band to rock the audience of the Bowl.
