The Killers’ Performances
On the Late Show, BBC Radio 2 and Pandora Live
LMG Touring recently supported two different performances for The Killers, providing a turnkey broadcast solution including audio, lighting and camera/switching in the LMG Las Vegas Studio, and executing a cinema-style shoot atop Caesars Palace with the iconic Las Vegas Strip as the backdrop.
CHALLENGESDue to the global pandemic, the band sought creative ways to promote their new album, “Imploding the Mirage,” aside from a more traditional album tour. With the shoots taking place in two different venues and shot for different broadcast and streaming platforms, the LMG team took unique creative approaches to the shoots and technology.
SOLUTIONAccording to Lighting Designer Steven Douglas, the goal was to ensure that the band’s new songs were in the spotlight. “The general concept was to present the band playing the songs as simply as we could,” says Douglas. “That way, people who were maybe hearing the new tracks for the first time were able to absorb the songs without being overwhelmed by production elements.”
