Multi-award winning American country music icon Taylor Swift used Stage Technologies’ performer flying expertise on her “Speak Now” international tour. Swift’s production company Inc contracted Stage Technologies to flyer her and aerial performers during the show.
The kit used included nine BigTow winches and controls and the effects they powered included flying aerial performers as well as a four-way flying bridle out in the house. The latter picked up Swift on the front of the stage and flew her in 3D around the arena and closer to her fans during a song.
ZFX’s Michael Petit accompanied the tour as the automation operator.
Once finished in the USA the tour continued to Australia and New Zealand in February and March 2012.
The rental system included:
Location: USA Australia and New Zealand tours
Date commenced: May 2011
Date completed: March 2012
