Tour Notes:
Along with its audio needs, the Formation tour presented a significant logistical and rigging challenge, with 56 semi-trucks needed to transport elements such as a 60-foot-tall rotating LED video “Monolith,” a treadmill runway and a secondary stage that stored and poured 2,000 gallons of water.
