PRG delivered a comprehensive lighting rig containing over 450 fixtures for Production and Lighting Designer, Dan Hadley. We utilized our new stock of Ayrton Hurricans, over half a mile of PRG BATT truss, four of PRG’s GroundControl® Longthrow follow spots - the only remote-control fixture capable of achieving 80-foot candles over such a long distance, and ten of our Best Boy® Ground Control fixtures to allow TV Lighting Director Nathan Wilson complete control of levels over a huge array of performers.

PRG provided the entirety of the LED screen package (including CB5 and Galaxia WAR tiles) for the show as well as 2 Disguise GX2C servers. In addition, we also provided an I-Mag camera package, and broadcast truck (including camera package) to facilitate all broadcast needs to the millions of viewers worldwide.

From a video perspective, PRG UK worked hand-in hand with PRG LA to provide the I-Mag screens and playback rig, as with the normal touring Foo Fighters shows, but to fit in with the live broadcast and film record, all cameras became UHD/4k, numbering some 23 chains, split between full broadcast chains, PTZ remote heads and PoV shots. To accommodate the extra needs of this event, PRG UK hired an OB truck from TimeLine TV, that handled the I-Mag cameras, cut by long-time Foo Fighters director, Josh Adams, with their touring Engineer Dan Albert. Hayden Katz, assisted by Tom Denney, ran content and effects for the I-Mag screens, from 2x Disguise GX2c, with a dedicated PTZ rig for certain shots and cutaways.
