Philly to Houston about 23 hours driving.

So they have to tear down the stage / load and then drive 23 hours. I am not sure what the exact hours are but truck drivers can only drive so many hours before they have to take a break so I would assume they have 2 drivers per truck. Anyway does anyone know how long it takes to tear down and load? Then how long to build.

It takes about 3 days to build the steel stage structure and another day to load in and set up the "production" (stage set, sound, lights, video screens and backline). It takes about 4 hours to load out the production and another 12 hours to take down the steel stage and load it onto the trucks. There are 2 stage structures but only one production. The stage from Jacksonville is already being set up in Houston and the production will be sent from Philly for the load-in on Friday. It is generally one driver doing two 12-hour days on the road so it's no problem getting it there in time.

It is a very long drive from Philadelphia to Houston but there is sufficient time given the 4 day break between shows. If they were rushed for time there is the option to have the production equipment flown by cargo jet but this is more expensive and complicated.

That looks like a 70's model they used to call them T.V. models cause the headstock letters were big enough to read on the tube

You're right about the logo on the headstock, but there was an article about the guy who built the thing and gave it to Keith. I can't find a link, but it was just a few years back

Concerning truck drivers:
11-Hour Driving Limit
A driver may drive a total of 11 hours during the 14-hour period, however, driving is not permitted if more than 8 hours have passed since the end of the driver's last off-duty or sleeper-berth period of at least 30 minutes.

Still, they do a lot of driving!

Have they upgraded their sound system? The Houston show was so clear, I could finally here all the between song banter, that’s a first since ‘78. Wondering if their using Roger Waters’ system in Palm Springs caused them to upgrade.

While I have not been to a show on this tour yet (finally next week!) I would assume they are still using Clair Global (or Clair Brothers for us old-timers). Dave Natale has been doing the front of house mix since the 2005 Tour.

I did not go to Desert Trip but would be very surprised if they used Roger Water's system, it's a very different design.

Thanks.

From what I understand, every act at the Desert Trip used Roger’s system..both audio & video.

Either way, the sound overall is a marked improvement over the last few times I’ve seen them (save for Desert Trip)...I know the venue has an impact, and where your seated...but I generally sit in the same are for every show since 1994.

The massive screen and stage at Desert Trip were the brainchild of Roger Waters, and being the sound perfectionist he is, I assumed the sound system being used by all bands might have been his as well.
All acts utilized the giant screen with their own imagery except for Neil Young who hung a giant burlap "Seeds of Life" sack over the middle section and only used the outer screen sections for occasional band closeups.

But Roger used it the best - at one point massive smoking chimneys started rising from the screens and the entire setup was transformed in to Battersea Power Station w/floating pig as seen on the Pink Floyd album Animals.
And that was only part of it as the imagery on the screens throughout his entire set was non-stop thought-provoking sensory overload.

Yes he did jumpontopofmebaby - both weekends. Throughout his entire set there were live black and white projections of he and his band, as well as nostalgic footage and random scenes.

A few pics I took from wkd. 1 when security was still lax and I was able to roam around freely - when the Stones came on I made it to the rail right behind the Pit.

(Wkd.#2 I was in the Pit but didn't take many pics).







But back on topic...the Stones utilized the massive screens nicely with customized visuals including tongues shaped like cacti in the desert, etc., and massive projections of live band closeups.
No doubt it was this giant state of the art screen with massive projections that partially inspired the massive tower screens they've been using for No Filter.thumbs up

Thanks. Still seems little time for the screen / lights / Sond etc. pretty amazing actually.

It is a very long drive from Philadelphia to Houston but there is sufficient time given the 4 day break between shows. If they were rushed for time there is the option to have the production equipment flown by cargo jet but this is more expensive and complicated.


TornandFried -- how do you know all of these specifics?

I worked for many years in the concert production business in the NYC area but there have also been some articles on here posting specific details about the No Filter stage. If you have any questions about the stage or the tour in general just ask, and I will do my best to answer.

Soundcheck time

BV told me to ask this on the boards:

About what time does the soundcheck occur on each show day, or does it vary?
