Division Bell made people want to work in the lighting industry. We know a few. Thanks to the massive lighting rig and Hol¬lywood Bowl-inspired stage designed by Marc Brickman and architecturally realized by Mark Fisher, this tour was the largest ever at the time—approximately 700 tons of steel on 33 trucks. Due to the sheer size, three identical stages and rigs were built, leapfrogging from venue to venue, since load-in and setup took three and half days to complete and load-out took another two. Peter Wynne Wilson, who was the band’s lighting designer until 1968, returned to add dramatic liquid projections and effects to the tour. Division Bell is immortalized in the live concert film Pulse, and it’s another Pollstar winner for Most Creative Stage Production.
