On November 17, the show of the popular Placebo band took place in Latvia. The Riga concert was the only one in the Baltic States. The performance at the Arena Riga venue was part of the world tour in support of the band’s new album Battle For The Sun.
The company JSA Europe prepared the area for the concert, supported the service for the Artist’s Rider and provided production management, including attraction and control of subcontractors of advertising and distribution of tickets. Also JSA as staging company installed stage (from Layher constructions) for this show.
The show was fantastic – each composition had its own light-video visual design. The big LED-screen were installed behind the musicians, two lines of the LED-screens were suspended at the top along the front and two LED-screens were placed as standard on each side of the stage. During of the show on all screens was broadcast prepared video set, as well as live footage of the concert – the cameras were located in the most unexpected places, including the shock installation and violin.
The performance of the best alternative band of 2009 according to the version of MTV Europe Music Awards lasted more than two hours. The musicians made an encore twice for the grateful audience. And it was a real gift to the band’s fans and just of nice live music.
The concert with the joint efforts of the agency Tatiana Dalskaya and JSA Europe has become a significant cultural event in the Baltic countries.
This was the result of a good cooperation in a new business format.
