Sexy Stage

This was my view of the Justin Timberlake stage from my truss spot. This stage was in the round. The band played on hydraulic lifts, and each musician had their own riser that moved on a track when the lifts were in their raised position. It was a very interesting stage, but I didn't see the point of the moving risers because none of the musicians played any solos during the show.

I had to go up early to spotlight the opening act, Pink. Her set was pretty cool, but I couldn't see a lot because there was a black curtain which covered up a video screen that was right in front of me.

A chain motor hoisted us up to our spotlights, which was sweet. It is much better than having to climb a rope ladder.

And, this was my view of the downstage portion of the stage. The small sections that are lit up with neon lights are bars where people sat to drink.

I lucked out during Justin's set. During the 3rd song, every light was being used, and it caused a voltage problem. A few of the spotlights went out, and mine was the only one that never came came back on. (I think it blew a bulb.) So, I took a much-needed nap during the second half of the show=:)
