The absurd levels of kit required for an international tour defies belief sometimes. Three coaches for the assembly teams, hundreds of cases and sturdy rigs and miles of cabling and wires. As each interlaced pillar of speakers is hoisted to the ceiling they unfold like endless centipedes. The rigs go up in a little under two hours, then after the concert they are taken down in a similar time and driven overnight to the next venue. Its a place to be cautious as well as in awe.
