Beyoncé kicked off her Formation World Tour at the Marlin’s Ballpark in Miami, Florida. TAIT, the global company that designs and fabricates world tour stages for the likes of The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, U2, Madonna, and many more, worked with Beyoncé and her team Malcolm Weldon (Production Manager), Jake Berry (Production Manager), Jake Berry (Production Manager), Es Devlin (Set Designer), Tim Rutledge (Lighting Designer) to build an enormous custom-designed stage including a treadmill runway, a B Stage Pool filled with water, winches carrying acrobatic performers, a stage lift, and the full structure that supported PRG Nocturnes 70 foot video screens.
The Formation World Tour is not the typical stadium show, in fact, this tour is a game-changer for what can be achieved in a stadium touring environment. The entire collaboration from scenic, to structure, to mechanics was custom made to create an epic experience for both Beyoncé and her fans. -Brian Levine, Senior Project Manager, TAIT.
