Mannheim pre-show - Serendipity

Mannheim pre-show - Serendipity. Video images can come from anywhere.

Travel day from Leipzig to Mannheim, so we go from one rock and roll capital to another. I went down to the gig in the evening to work on a couple of songs with Bruce Ramus (lighting director) and Monica Caston (video director). We are looking at the Last Night on Earth/End of the World section, as I think, visually, it needs some tidying up. Part of the solution came from Dave Neugebauer, PopMart's chief video engineer, who was working on a test pattern. He had this extraordinary moving pattern up and running on the screen and before Monica could cover my eyes I spotted it and of course wanted to put it in the show.
