It was 10s all round for Showforce’s crew when the Strictly Come Dancing tour arrived at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena this January. Working with the tour management team from Phil McIntyre, over 138 crew were in action for three days supporting the pre-rig, build day and load out.

The tour’s tight schedule required the experience of seven Showforce crew and a crew boss to carry out a pre-rig on Monday 29th January. This involved tipping trucks and ensuring equipment was in position for the build the next day.

Showforce’s crew numbers peaked on 18th and 19th January with 72 and 124 crew onsite respectively each day. As you would expect on a project of this size and scale, requirements change and the operations team was able to adapt and increase numbers accordingly in a short space of time. In total 418 man days were amassed by the Showforce crew, with the team onsite for 12 days.

“I wanted to take a quick moment to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to you all for the amazing service and support which allowed ATL and myself to deliver without doubt the best concert Dubai has seen.  Feedback from ES Tour management is that Dubai has set the bar very high for all the other stops on the Asian tour and that is down to all of you and your team members for providing amazing structures, Audio LX solutions and lots of LED… and a few generators to run it all, and let’s not forget the hardworking crew and labour.”
