The overall idea of the show was based on the visual part of the show, timecode synchronisation of lights and graphic visuals on LED screens spread across the whole stage width, masterly coordinated to bring new experience from show perception. The show has been escalated by the use of special effects (co2, flames) and pyrotechnics. The decorated stage design has been engineered by Martin Hruška and his S.A.L.D designing company and was a mixture of high-end industry technologies, decoration and state-of-the-art production equipment. The stage itself has been designed into specific shape with few hydraulic elements integrated which were effectively used during the show to raise a higher power to artist’s performance.
