The smash hit musical The Bodyguard has been touring the UK since January 2015 following a successful West End run. With Lighting Design by award winning Mark Henderson, SLX were delighted to provide the Lighting for the tour. After 18 months on the road, the show is now heading back into the West End at the Dominion Theatre for a limited 6 month run from July 2016.
For this spectacular show we have supplied more than 100 fixtures, featuring Clay Paky Sharpy & Sharpy Wash, Martin Professional MAC Viper Profile, Viper Performance, Aura & TW1, ETC Source 4 Revolution, Philips SL Bar 510, and Chroma Q Colorforce 72.
With such a comprehensive rig, Dale Driscoll, Touring Chief LX, and his team have had their work cut out, but Dale was confident he was going to get the support he needed. “Having previously worked with SLX on other tours, it was reassuring to know I was going to be in the same great hands for The Bodyguard” says Dale. “The support was spot on, helping the team and me keep an extensive rig going on a long and sold out tour.”
We were pleased to be able to give The Bodyguard team space in our London warehouse to re-prep items for the show before moving into the Dominion Theatre. With tight time constraints to get the show up and running, it was important for the team to have everything in order before making the move. Dale and his team will continue to receive our full support, with our London drivers making multiple West End runs every day from their base less than 30 minutes away.
