Stage Set-Up

The stage setup for this tour was somewhat basic. An onstage lighting detail was provided by very tall columns with a single spotlight atop each one. There was a large draped fabric backdrop and linen-like fabric hung across the top of the stage structure. There was also a three piece scrim at the front of the stage that would be pulled away during the first song. The drums and main keyboard were both on large wooden risers.
