In celebration of their upcoming new album 'For Those That Wish To Exist', Architects performed an exclusive livestream show at The Royal Albert Hall on the 21st November!
PRG supplied all lighting, rigging, media server (D3) and LED for the live performance which was streamed globally via the streaming service Veeps.
Production Designer Paul McAdams utilised the space, creating an incredible high energy design to showcase the venue and ensure viewers watching the stream could experience that same live energy from behind their screens!
“The team at PRG were extremely professional and supportive as always, constantly coming up with creative and effective solutions to any issue that arose on this show,” explained McAdams. “It was great to call on all members of the team’s vast wealth of knowledge to help deliver the design as intended. The shoot went off without a hitch!”
Martin Sceptron LED fixtures were used to create a flown triangular set-piece which was situated above the band. These were also used to edge the band's risers.
To complete the look, PRG supplied the lighting floor package, which was comprised of; Icon® Edge, GLP JDC-1, MagicBlade R and Solaris Flares, and the ROE CB5mm video wall. The lightweight carbon series LED panels created the perfect backdrop to set off the iconic London venue.
Following the livestream the band Tweeted: “Thank you SO much to everyone that joined us. We hope that you guys felt that as much as us! We love you all!”
PRG Music Account Manager, Gemma Oldfield said: It was fantastic to work with the band and team again on what was a truly special show. Using this iconic venue as the surrounding for the livestream at a time when it is empty meant that the different spaces could be used to help create both intimate acoustic moments and big rock n roll spectacles. The Coronavirus pandemic has been a hugely challenging time for our industry, but has also been a chance to look at new ways to adapt and evolve. Our PRG events staff worked closely with the production team to help bring their ideas to life – and the final result was stunning!”
The album ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’ is out on the 26th February 2021 and PRG are pleased to be continuing to work with the band and supporting them on their upcoming projects.
Special thanks to Production Designer Paul McAdams, Directors Tom Welsh & Taylor Fawcett, Production Manager Kenny MacLeod, Video Content Jeb Hardwick, Media Server Jackson Warner.
