Designing Lady Gaga: The Joanne World Tour
Tuesday, October 31 @ 2 pm ET / 11 am PT
Webcast sponsored by A.C. T Lighting
Join world-renowned designer LeRoy Bennett for a discussion on the design and technology for Lady Gaga’s Joanne World Tour, about which Variety says, “Though there’s much to be said about Gaga’s unfaltering vocals and high-energy showmanship, it’s also worth noting one of the most impressive parts of the show: the set. With bridges that lowered from the ceiling that allowed Gaga and her dancers to jump from the main stage to three other ones in the venue, the transitions were absolutely seamless. Though she’s only spending two nights there before returning again in December, it almost seemed like the concert was designed for the Forum and the dedicated fans there on this night.”
Bennett will discuss designing stage, lighting, automation, and more for this blockbuster worldwide tour.
LeRoy Bennett entered the industry through working with Prince back in the 80s and highlights the opening night of Purple Rain as an unforgettable memory. Since then, Roy has grown to be one of the most iconic production, stage and lighting designers in the world through utilizing his limitless imagination and inexhaustible commitment to deliver unforgettable stage moments for live concert tours and special events for film & television. Roy continues to push creative and physical limits of stage technology through his work with major musical icons such as Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Deadmau5, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, and Keith Urban. He constantly strives to create an emotional experience for all the audience that is abstract but moving to those experiencing it.
