In 2011, HSL made its first major investment in LED screen, purchasing large quantities of Martin EC10 and EC20 surface, some of which was utilised for this tour.
Dave Lee?s lighting design was based around complimenting and matching the bespoke video footage commissioned by Doyle that unfolded the show?s narrative. This followed ?The Boys? - Niall, Harry, Liam, Zayn and Louis - through two holidays and a term at high school.
Upstage centre was a 15 metre wide by 4 metre tall EC10 screen, and the two band risers stage left and right of this were masked by two EC20 screens, each measuring 2.4 metres wide by 1.4 tall.
The content on these, plus an elaborate series of props including a bonfire, beach rocks, a VW camper van, a long dining table, sofa, etc., created a fast moving, constantly changing stage environment.
