Litestructures supplies ‘B' stage feature for New Kids On The Block

New Kids On The Block on Litestructures Scissor LiftLitestructures supplied a key feature for the latest European tour of the famous American boy Band New Kids On The Block (NKOTB).

This was the first time Litestructures worked with the band. Production manager Bobby Schneider contacted Litestructures to supply a circular lift which would be located in the middle of the crowd, and would be able to hold the band and rise to up to 6' high.

Litestructures came up with a concept of adapting one of their standard Scissor lifts with a circular 12' diameter LiteDeck staging system – all used from the company's Hire Department.

The end result was a success and the lift acted as the centre piece of the show and toured with the band for three weeks.

In smaller venues, the lift was replaced with a static 12' diameter circular LiteDeck.

Ben Brooks, Hire Manager at Litestructures comments: “It was a fantastic opportunity for Litestructures Hire to use its key standard products such as the Scissor Lift alongside LiteDeck and combine them into a bespoke and unique feature for the show. Litestructures was glad to work with the NKOTB's production which was our first of hopefully one of many future collaborations”.

Litestructures Hire has the largest stock of LiteDeck in the UK and has recently extended its range by adding 6 brand new scissor lifts to their stock.
