John Mayer Tour Creates Window Into The World

John Mayer Tour Stage Design and Screen Visuals

“This was a fun task to design inside of, something physical, that was primarily lighting- and scenery-based,” explains Alves. “A portal surrounding a kinetic set piece. As John put it later in an Instagram post, ‘Your eye knows when you’re looking at pixels vs seeing something real.’ The idea was to be more theatrical than the typical rock performance and avoid the usual big visible structure above the stage. Hide all the technology that lights the scenic especially. Color and shadow without all the pieces and parts out on display.”
