What Per already said about the new stage design is that it was built in London, Patrick Woodroffe and Stufish designed it, it’s very expensive, it’s 8 tons of equipment (excl. band members) and it looks as stunning as Pelle’s beard, so we’re gonna love it.

Patrick Woodroffe (who appears at the end of the apple pie party video) has lit several artists over the last 40 years, e.g. ABBA, AC/DC, Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Depeche Mode, The Rolling Stones, etc.

Stufish created stage design for The Rolling Stones, U2, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Elton John and Simply Red among others.

This evening, Soundforce Scandinavian AB, the company that helps the band with sound and video technology shared a photo from the rehearsals. There is still much left to speculate until we see the stage set in action on 7th Ferbuary in Auckland, New Zealand where it has its premiere. Since there don’t seem to be too many physical elements (or maybe we just can’t see them all on the pic), the stunning factor will surely be the digital and lighting parts of it, so all the techniques they use to make the background move & shine. Exxxciting!

And of course, another stunning factor will be the band itself. Hard to wait to see them live again very soon! 2 weeks left until the XXX tour goes on!

Update on 25th Jan: Soundforce was probably asked to remove the photo from their Facebook page. They were a bit too early posting it it seems.

Update on 24th Feb: Woodroffe Bassett Design shared some photos from the rehearsals. HERE you can check them out.
