John Mayer Tour Creates Window Into The World

John Mayer Tour Stage Design and Screen Visuals

The resulting design featured a 51'x27' LED surround with a 40'x12' portal cut out in the bottom center, creating a window to the scenic pieces upstage of the wall. Scrim covered the portal, allowing the creative team to silhouette the flats from behind during the first half of the show and then fly them out in the second half to fully reveal the set pieces, designed by Pattinson and Gareth Blayney. “The set flats and the scrim in front of them are on a batten system that flies in and out with Kinesys hoists,” explains Alves. “The gallery changes dimension throughout the night, from a flat wall of color to a shadowbox, to a fully dimensional set piece with a few articulating elements such as clouds, balloons, etc.”
