On New Year’s Eve there was no doubt that everyone was ready to bid farewell to a very bad year. But one legendary rock band was prepared to KISS 2020 Goodbye in spectacular fashion – with a live Pay-Per-View concert from Atlantis the Palm in Dubai. In what’s been called the biggest production in KISS’s history, the 22-song set from the band’s End of the Road show was performed on a 250-foot stage with the live audience at the Atlantis resort watching from their balconies and fans worldwide live streaming the concert on FITE. A large complement of Claypaky Mythos 2 and Scenius Unico fixtures from technical supplier PRG helped to illuminate the expansive venue.
It’s a comfort to know that somewhere in the world, 2020 ended with a music festival. That’s what happened in the shadow of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, where the Rhythm & Alps Festival saw off the year with a celebratory vibe enhanced by TomTom Productions, whose Hippotizer™ Media Servers from Green Hippo delivered the visuals for three separate stages.

Online Reunion Concert by Legendary Russian Rock Band KINO Marks World Debut of Claypaky Tambora Batten Fixtures
The online concert reunited members of the band who had not appeared together since the death of KINO’s lead singer, Victor Tsoi, in 1990. The performance featured two bass players who had played at different times with the original band, KINO’s original guitarist, a synthesizer player and a rhythm guitarist. Victor Tsoi’s presence was felt in the show when his multitrack recordings were digitized, enhanced and incorporated into the concert. Tsoi’s son Alexander was one of the show producers. Claypaky’s Tambora, a high-power, feature-rich batten that meets the needs for inline or matrix lighting applications, made its debut on the concert.
Since appearing on the much loved show in 2018, and prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Dan was delivering baking masterclasses in person to groups of around 10, in conjunction with the company Bake with a Legend. “Then Covid forced us to think differently,” begins Dan. “So, we took the classes online via Zoom. At the start, we were essentially shooting on a propped up iPhone, which was okay, but when you have people paying to attend a class, we felt the quality wasn’t good enough.”

Hard hitting new campaign launched by #WeMakeEvents, as survey shows live event supply chain on verge of collapse
Today, #WeMakeEvents launches a hard-hitting campaign, rallying the UK Government to provide urgent relief to a struggling live events sector. The Government Can’t See Us, Can You? shows the devastation the pandemic has wrought on the live event supply chain – told through the stories of the highly-skilled professionals whose livelihoods have been seriously damaged. #WeMakeEvents is calling on the Government – in an open letter to Rishi Sunak – to halt the destruction of the sector by recognising the impact of the pandemic on the live event supply chain, to support individuals and businesses to survive while they cannot work, and to engage with the sector to develop a plan for reopening, including Government-backed COVID-19 cancellation insurance.

The Beacon Jams were a hugely successful 8-week ‘virtual residency’ presented by guitarist and singer-songwriter Trey Anastasio (AKA lead singer of Phish) and MSG Entertainment in New York City’s iconic Beacon Theatre. The shows were live-streamed free exclusively on Twitch at 8 p.m. every Friday through October and November 2020. The artist played with varied arrangements of his Trey Anastasio Band (TAB), adding and changing line-ups and special guests each week, offering a dynamic mix of live music and interactive entertainment. With up to 12 musicians onstage and the immense challenge of playing live with no audience in such a famous venue, production and lighting designer Marc Janowitz from E26 Design thought out of the box!
Lighting designer Hugh Taranto lit a vibrant array of artists performing on the Sydney Stage for the 2020-21 Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC)’s New Year’s Eve broadcast. The high-profile event culminated in a jaw-dropping pyro spectacular fired off the Sydney Harbour Bridge, stretching right across Sydney Harbour … watched in awe by millions across Australia and worldwide. This year the event was named “We Are One” following 12 gruelling months that started with raging bushfires and ended with the ongoing pandemic. As the date neared, the very tough decision was taken to go ahead without a live audience, due to general Coronavirus concerns, then a fast-spreading local cluster developing in the days immediately prior meant that even plans for a limited capacity ‘local hero’ audience – nominated by communities – had to be dropped.
