"Hanging out your laundry" was the phrase used to describe the set backdrop for Will Young's European Tour. The brief was to have trousers, t-shirts and shirts in a variety of colours all suspensded from the stage roof.
Our drapes department spent hours sorting through boxes of clothes, hand stitching each individual piece of clothing whilst incorporating a series of D Rings hidden in the backdrop, which enabled Will to hang his own costumes from. Using a stage ladder he climbed up during the live show and had his costume changes in front of the audience. What a clever idea - he never had to leave the stage!
We also had to fire proof the backrop to ensure it met with the latest international touring standards.
