What Is This About

You go to a major staged event, walk around the venue, enjoy the concert and maybe then stay back awhile in one of the bars or club at the venue but have you ever stopped to wonder what goes on behind the scenes to make it all happen?

That is not something most of us think about or perhaps even want to. After all, these events happen every day somewhere around the world. However, my brain is wired a little differently. I go to these events and the first thing I think of is how did they do that or how was that effect achieved?

If you are anything like me, then this space is for you. Here I will explore all the intricacies that go into staging an event from the stage lighting to the computer tech involved in achieving such effects. Not forgetting the business side of it too: what venues cost, how much might an artist expect to earn after a concert tour and what it really takes business wise to stage such major events.
