Peter Kay’s ‘Dance for Life’ 2017 tour was a series of fundraising ‘dance-a-thon’ parties, with all profits going to Cancer Research UK. FIX8Group were chosen to support the show, produced by SJM Concerts (Production team Andy Redhead, Mike Oates and Laura Bartlett) and designed by Simon Barrington (Show Producer) with LED screens, cameras and playback control for seven arena shows where ‘DJ PK’ transformed them into giant grown up discos.
FIX8 partnered with Euroscreens to provide a giant 21×7 metre LED screen and 2 IMAG screens. A key part of the show design was that Peter Kay had ultimate control of the whole live show from his ‘Control Station’ on stage which featured a custom midi trigger system, designed and manufactured by FIX8. This allowed Peter to control live camera feeds and the clock on stage.
Neil Trenell, FIX8Group’s Managing Director said ‘It was a great show to work on, technically challenging with superb people but most importantly the whole crew knew we were part of a team raising money for a great cause’.
