VER Supports Skepta At London Show

VER has supported Skepta at a one-off, sold out show at London's Alexandra Palace.

The grime artist from North London was joined onstage at the event by a number of collaborators including Kano and Wretch 32. Streamed live to a worldwide audience via Apple Music, the show rocked the 10,000-capacity venue with social comment and intelligent beats resonating against a backdrop of vibrant imagery and colour.

Supporting the show via their full service London operation, VER supplied a large 23m x 7m (5888 x 1792 pixel) upstage LED wall, created using over 600 LED tiles to deliver 6K video, flanked by twin sets of LED video towers to add extra depth to the installation.
Working with Production/Lighting Designer Tobias Rylander, VER Lighting Project Manager Craig Hancock provided more than 100 TMB Solaris Flare fixtures, paired with GLP X4Bars, to shroud the stage with ultra-deep saturated colour, augmented by hard-edge creative effects provided by a selection of Martin's AirFX automated heads. Additional Solaris Flares were added across the venue's Great Hall to highlight the audience, switching from colour wash to strobe effects.

Paul Gilzene, VER Project Manager, said: "Our ability to handle every aspect of a production allows us to seamlessly package shows of any scale to help clients create truly memorable audience experiences. From the intense red glow of opener 'No Security' to the burning finale 'Shutdown', to have assisted in presenting the energy and passion of the Skepta show has been incredible."
