Production Resource Group (PRG) provided a combined lighting, audio, and scenic solution for the latest tour of the rock band Scorpions. PRG's service package includes a conventional lighting rig with Icon control system, a V-DOSC audio system with Midas consoles, and several scenic flats for the band's stage. All of the items were packaged together in PRG's Las Vegas operations depot, which contains a full-service scenic shop and over $50 million in lighting and audio equipment.
"Being able to prep and load all of the equipment and scenic elements from a single operations facility enabled us to respond quickly to the band's needs," stated Mark Coleman, a PRG account executive for the tour. "And by co-packing the items, we were able to save the band significant shipping costs."
The first portion of Scorpion's Unbreakable tour began on October 21st and concluded December 5 in Reno, NV. Following a two-month break, the tour will resume again in February 2005.
