After a few excessively firm steps around the stage, we found it was surprising firm, and went to work setting up. Once the gear was set, and after a little tweaking, PK got to programming. Bellagio gave us a few test runs, perfectly successful. We covered the lights with tarps and left that night with complete confidence for the coming day.

The next morning, we came in, ready to rock, we boarded the barge out to the stage and found the tarps mostly dry from the fountains regular operation, securing our faith, that we had nothing to fear of the over spray of the fountains during the show. A few practice runs later, and we ready for showtime.

The band arrived that afternoon for a relaxed walk through, then went for wardrobe. When they returned, it was go time. Tracks started, the band was on it, lights were on their mark, and the fountain burst exactly on cue…and silence.

Now for those of you that might not be familiar with the weather here in fabulous Las Vegas the wind is our nemesis and sure enough it kicked up… The wind (had taken) the spray from the fountain and caused all kinds of problems on stage.

The AV Vegas team shines in times of adversity and instances like this is what sets us apart from the rest… Having professional techs on site can be the difference between success and disaster.

The spray from the fountains drenched a few of the fixtures causing the stage lighting to stop working, our techs are always on site, Chris the lead on this event, quickly boarded a boat to the stage and with a little bit of tech work and salvage lights were back up in about 5 minutes finishing the day with categorical success!
