After last year’s highly successful tour, internationally renowned producer and DJ, MK returned to Ireland for headline slots at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin & the Savoy Theatre, Cork for JACK, one of Ireland’s largest live promoters.

The design was a natural progression from last year’s production just on a larger scale. I incorporated the circular truss that worked so well and added a brand new floor package and 4 3m angled trusses to create a large dominant background. This tour also included live vocals from Anabel Englund so I added side light from Chauvet led wash heads on top of a tungsten front wash and DJ special to help with photography and visibility of the artists.

What was a large complex rig and set up was made easier by a great crew and support from venue technicians as well as pre planning and consultations with all the parties involved.

Overall I think this has to be my proudest production so far. I was really pleased that the finished design was a natural evolution of MK’s previous tour and that the design was fully realised and as close as possible to the original concept.
MK’s second major Irish tour attended by over 4,000 people in 3 days

Have a look at some fantastic pictures of the show in the gallery and head to Sean Smyth Media to see more of the photographer’s work.
