Jack White trusted Mathieu Larivé for a third time to showcase his last two albums, Fear of The Dawn and Entering Heaven Alive. Mathieu oversaw the tour’s production and lighting and called on Solotech to execute this unique project.
Why was it such a unique challenge? Because Jack White doesn’t perform a set program of songs. Indeed, he has over one hundred in his repertoire, which he plays on the piano or electric guitar, depending on his mood or the context. Therefore, the production had to be agile and versatile to create ambiances in line with the chosen musical set.
The stage was 40 feet wide by 24 feet deep and was overhung by an Austrian curtain and a background video screen. The latter was made up of ROE Visual CB5 LED panels housed in Air Frames flanked by IMAG and extendable back and side lighting towers on either side of the stage.
In a nod to one of his latest music videos, a 6-foot lighted Hawaiian statue was controlled by a footswitch to change color depending on the song: red for the White Stripes, green for the Raconteurs, and blue for Jack White’s solo material.
Despite all the sonic and visual challenges, Lüz and Solotech’s collaboration made for a memorable performance for the audience.
