Acclaimed as the hottest electronic artist in the world, Joel Zimmerman aka Deadmau5, is widely recognised as the guy in the massive mouse head equipped with built-in LEDs sporting video mapping and wowing the crowds with mind-blowing performances and productions.
Based in Toronto, this Canadian progressive, electro and house music producer hit South African shores in December last year with a three cities tour. It kicked off in Cape Town at the CTICC and the following day moved to Durban for an ‘unhooked’ show which did not have the full lighting and video rig. This gave the crew at CTICC a day and a half to strike the kit, transport it up to the Johannesburg venue, Wild Waters H2O, and get it rigged it time for the final show.Feb 3, 2012 Read More

South Africa - Gearhouse South Africa recently supplied the Kings of Leon tour. 72 Robin 600 LEDWash fixtures were purchased by Gearhouse to facilitate the growing demand for these fixtures for events such as this.
The concert was held at the Cape Town Stadium on 26 October and for the Johannesburg fans two days later, at The Soccer City Complex, FNB Stadium. A grandMA console was used for the event.
An enormous African thunderstorm the night before the Johannesburg concert certainly added a touch of apprehension and caused a four hour delay on the load in. However the Gearhouse team ensured the gig went ahead without a glitch.
