(NEW CASTLE, DE - Dec. 12, 2013) Pete’s Big TVs is providing LED video panels to the touring production of the family entertainment show, “A Very Awesome Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Holiday Show!”
The live version of the popular children’s TV show (airing on Nick Jr. cable network) runs Nov. 29-Dec. 29 in nine U.S. cities over five weekends. The production features hip hop artist Biz Markie, host DJ Lance Rock, and favorite Gabba Gang characters in costumed form.
Pete’s Big TVs is supplying digiLED MC15 mm LED panels as the main upstage screen. The screen displays scenic looks and backgrounds as well as clips from the TV show, which help introduce the live characters onstage. All the content, as well as the audio, is coming out of Q-Lab.
Pete’s Big TVs has enhanced Yo Gabba Gabba! live touring shows with LED video equipment for the past few years. Pete’s Big TVs’ VP Guy Benjamin said, “It’s a fun show. It’s a mix of live action segments, short animated sketches and musical numbers. This is their first holiday tour, so the content has changed to reflect that, but our video equipment setup is relatively the same as the past tours.”
Acting as both production manager and LED tech is Will Farnham, who was most recently on Bruce Springsteen’s "Wrecking Ball" world tour video crew with Pete’s Big TVs.
The tour is produced and promoted by S2BN Entertainment in association with CPCTY.
