Documentary on WorldWired tour production
Metallica’s live shows are famous for having technically ambitious stage setups, complete with pyrotechnics, lasers, projectors and more. Their WorldWired tour has proven no exception with its eye-catching stage design (the band perform under a canopy of 52 LED video cubes, which move up and down with the music) and groundbreaking use of drones (it’s the first major tour in music history to feature an autonomous indoor drone swarm).
If you’ve ever wondered how the magic comes together, ponder no more: a new, four-part documentary from industry blog Mothergrid sheds light on every aspect of the WorldWired tour, right from the mouths of the talented crew members who make it all happen. Think of it like food porn, except with fancy rigs and shiny cubes.
