Jennifer Lopez at the Crystal Arena, Azerbaijan.
As part of the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup, International artists Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Shakira took to the stage for a series of one off concerts in the capitals Crystal Arena and Football Stadium.
With the Nations President in attendance these were the first ever International solo artist concerts to be performed within Azerbaijan and Broadcast to a global audience. Therefore the pressure to perform was most definitely on to ensure success as Scott Surridge Ltd was brought in to project manage all video elements of these shows both in the Crystal Arena and at the Stadium which included multiple High Definition camera systems, scenic and screen projection and over 240 square metres of Hi Res LED screen forming not only a variety of creative displays within the artists stage show but also two huge imag screens on either side of the stage for audience viewing.
With a total of 7 trucks for the video screen and equipment alone Scott Surridge Ltd provided 18 technical crew for this event which included video directors, engineers, projectionists, camera operators, LED screen technicians and onsite project managers.
With each International artist and their touring production appearing as soon as the previous one had played their show it was essential to ensure that the tight deadlines were met regardless of the size and complexity of each rig. The seamless integration of our team was key to this success and so we were brought in on day one of pre production to work closely not only with Rock Nation in the US who were producing the event but also with the local agents, production team and those of the International Artists themselves.
