Speaking of concerts known for their classic designs, Pink Floyd is always inevitable. Indeed, very few bands, like Pink Floyd, have left such a rich heritage in the stage design of the concert, in addition to the music itself. Three of the founding team of this British rock band graduated from the Architecture Department of the University of Westminster in London, so it is not surprising that their stage design requirements are more unique.

Of course, all thanks to their old friends-the late legendary architect Mark Fisher and his design team Stufish. Pink Fisher's famous 'The Wall' concert, 'The Division Bell' concert, 'Animals' global tour and so on are inseparable from the greatness of Mark Fisher design.

First, let's take a look at the stage designs that Mark Fisher fought for two of Pink Freud's world-renowned concerts.

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd

– The Wall (1980)

Pink Floyd's classic concert 'The Lost Wall' is the first major design by young Mark Fisher to enter the stage of rock concerts.

In the first half of the show, a wall of 31 feet high and 160 feet wide was built between the audience and the band using 420 cardboard tiles.

The second half featured Gerald Scarfe's animated projection, showing spectacular special effects on the wall first, and ending with the entire wall crashing.

The show also includes Pink Floyd's iconic dolls, inflatable flying pigs and giant model airplanes, sent from both sides to the top of the stage.

Pink Floyd

– The Division Bell (1994)

Pink Floyd's final tour used a Hollywood bowl-inspired stage designed by Marc Brickman and Mark Fisher, using extra-large sound Optical equipment was once the largest concert in history.

The design includes an iconic circular screen, a crashed fighter jet, and a giant sphere that opens to become a double-headed flower. The iconic doll, two inflatable flying pigs, landed from the high nests above the speaker stands on both sides of the stage.

The vaulted stage is 180 feet long and 130 feet high. It uses 700 tons of steel and is transported to 33 places by truck. Due to the large scale, three identical platforms and assembly equipment were established. It took 5 days and a half from the site to the site to move from loading to unloading to complete the construction.

Not only Pink Floyd, but also the concert stage of many world-renowned bands and singers is by Mark Fisher. For example, the rock band, U2 band, metal band, Madonna, Lady Gaga and other world music players have cooperated with it.

Mark Fisher designed two shows for the Rolling Stones 'Steel Wheels / Urban Jungle' tour stage. At the time, it was the largest tour ever. The stage is 236 feet wide, 82 feet high, and costs $ 40 million. It was the first winner to win the Best Creative Stage Award on Tour.

Mark Fisher designed the stage as an eclectic collection of the Seven Deadly Sins, inspired by Baroque styles, ancient Egyptian architecture, and futurist sculptor Bocchione. The stage uses a round central screen in the style of Pink Floyd. It also draws inspiration from U2's Popmart, with curved speaker stands on both sides of the stage.

The stage design also includes a 46 m (150 ft) telescopic cantilever bridge that extends from the main stage to Stage B in the audience center.

Mark Fisher's '360' concert stage for U2 is recognized as the most technologically innovative and largest design ever. Of course, the cost is also the most expensive, with each of the three stages costing between $ 23-31 million. In addition, the stage is equipped with the largest sound system ever.

A concept designed by Fisher in collaboration with Willie Williams enables the band to perform a '360 °' performance in the stadium. Inspired by the theme building of the Los Angeles Airport, they built a 220-ton steel structure named 'The Claw'.

The central tower is 51 m high, while the huge LED TV wall is made of slender hexagonal materials and is mounted on a multi-zoom system that can be flexibly retracted during the show.

This design increased the venue's capacity by 25%, with a total of 7.2 million tickets sold for 110 performances, setting the highest ever box office record for a tour.

And Mark Fisher is also well-known in China. He is not only the artistic director of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics, but also the 'Earth' of the theme song 'Me and You' of the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The image is also from his own hands.

Pay tribute to the master, pay tribute to the art!
