Keith Urban

Upstaging has enjoyed a long partnership with Keith Urban’s production team, providing professional services on the country star’s tours for more than a decade.

So it was only natural for the team to turn to us when developing the creative vision for Keith Urban’s 2023 residency at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas.

The creative team for this project included production designer LeRoy Bennett, tour manager Chuck Hull, production manager Randy Gardner, lighting director Ben Silverstein, and programming director Steven Mills.

The creative solutions our inventory and fabrication departments developed included:

  • Building a structure to support a large lighting column with a truss and rigging on a track to open smoothly under the weight of a large-scale video wall
  • Developing a custom lighting frame to support the dynamic rear wall of lighting fixtures
  • Automating custom rigging on moving trusses
  • Safely mounting lighting fixtures
  • Mounting flexible, automated hoists with free range of motion
  • A custom solution to automate lighting torm (ladder) positions on a movable track for a constantly evolving look
