June 2017


David Guetta - Summerburst Festival - Stockholm, Sweden


Here at APEX we were delighted to be appointed by Jonathon Armstrong of Symbiosis Design in the UK to cover internationally reknowned dance music producer and dj David Guetta for his headline and closing performance at Summerburst Festival in Stockholm, Sweden. A weeks worth of WYG pre-programming here at APEX HQ on our state of the art WYG suite ensured that we nailed it when the time came. Big thanks to Spencer Pickering, Louis Walters,Bob Willekens, Tobias Radtke and Tom Robinson for making it an unforgettable show and Cassandra and Daniel from the local LX suppliers for being so accomodating.

Sir Tom Jones - European Tour - UK - Europe and Israel


So we've just completed the Lighting Design and Operation duties for the legend that is Sir Tom Jones, on his 27 date European tour. Legendary LD Mark Cunniffe who has looked after Sir Tom Jones production for nearly ten years approached us to provide on the road design and operation services for Sir Toms tour and we were more than happy to oblige! 

It worked out so well that we have been booked for his upcoming USA tour which kicks off next month in September and travels pretty much the full length and breadth of the US.

We are truly honored to be part of the Sir Tom Jones production stable and would like to thank Mark Cunniffe, Mark and Donna Woodward, Phil Bowdry, Dave 'Disco' Nelson and Abigail Potter for putting their trust in APEX.

Il Divo - Las Vegas Residency and South American Tour


A 2 week residency at the otherwordly Venetian hotel in Las Vegas followed by a full on South American tour that took in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Peru and Argentina topped off a busy couple of months for us. The Multi Million album selling, Multi Platinum classical crossover group called us to provide full Lighting Design and Operation for their shows. It was a pleasure to be part of what was a highly logistically complex show run and we are happy ( yet a little tired ) that it all came together.

November 2017


U2 - 2017 MTV EMA's - Special Broadcast - Trafalgar Square, London


Our jaw hit the floor a little when we got the call in South America during the Il DIvo tour from the legendary Patrick Woodroffe OBE , asking if we could execute the programming and operation duties for U2's performance at the MTV EMA's.

It was then that we found out that we would be working with another 2 legends in the industry, WIllie Williams and Mark Cunniffe to bring the show to fruition.

An amazing show was put on under direction of WIllie , Mark and Patrick with APEX providing our skills on the MA2 both during programming and the execution of U2's performance where they played some of their back catalog and indeed their new material.

We really are truly grateful for the oppurtunity to work with what is undoubtedly the Industries best. We're kind of kicking ourselves though as we never took a selfie with all three of them. Spent too much time gas bagging...

December 2017


Il Divo Cruise - Miami to Cozumel in Mexico


We dont normally go on boats, but the boys from Il Divo again requested our skills for their Il Divo Cruise that gave fans of the group the chance to see them perform in a unique enviroment and format. A small performance space meant a dramatic Lighting Design change from the last time we worked with them, but we came through and executed an impactful yet intimate design to make the boys shine on this one of a kind show.

February 2018


Sebastien Izambard - 'We came here to love' album launch concerts - Osaka and Tokyo - Japan


While on the Il Divo tour we got 'taken to the side' by 1/4 of the group, Sebastien Izambard where he requested us to provide the Production and Lighting Design for his forthcoming solo album launch 'We came here to love'.

We were more than happy to oblige and promptly sat down in his changing room before an Il Divo show, and in less than 10 minutes came up with a design using Cast-Softwares WYSIWYG, which he said a resounding 'YES!' to instantly!

So off we popped to Japan for two shows which were a resounding success!
