Pet Shop Boys
TSG were successful in securing the order to build 5 bespoke flown rings for the Pet Shop Boys tour. The brief was to supply 5 rings from 1.5 metre diameter up to 8.5 metre diameter which were flown from drop cables to form various looks on stage. Each ring had its own power supplied and DMX driver to allow RGB colour changing through the front of the ring. In addition to this the outer surface to the remaining 3 sides had to be mirror finish for a different effect.
Given that each ring was being flown vertically these rings have to be structural but break up in to manageable pieces for touring. It turns out all of these rings fit into one air freight able dolly. This tour is worldwide
In order for these to work structurally and be manageable to build the 3 mirror sides have to be structural and also clean and sharp edged. This meant we had to be clever with the design and build to ensure it was light enough to fly and stay circular when flown, but strong enough not to distort.
The end result was very pleasing and has drawn a lot of positive comments from the client.
