Sir Elton John UK Tour

A Serious Stages Case Studies

Project Info:

  • Dates: 1 May-1 June 2015
  • Duration: 6 weeks
  • Location: UK wide

We hit the road with two of our staging systems to provide the staging for the outdoor venues of Elton John’s summer tour, which kicked off at the Kent County Showground. 

Our team designed and built an 80ft wide flat roofed stage, complete with a huge 8m cantilever, a 6m x 6m front of house and downstage truss spots. Sir Elton is famed for playing in unusual locations with no existing infrastructure, and our stage was specifically created to ensure great site lines throughout the entire audience and enable the seating to be built as close as possible to the stage, to give the show a close and personal feel.
